The 2023 Honda Super Cub: Commute With Flair
What is the most produced motor vehicle on the planet? Many have heard it is the Volkswagen Beetle, and that is indeed the most produced car, with more than 50 million built, but that is less than half of what a certain well-known Japanese manufacturer has done. In continuous production since 1958, and having well surpassed 100 million built, the Honda Cub is number 1. With that information let me introduce the 2023 Honda Super Cub C125 ABS.
Much like the other Minimoto bikes in the 2023 Honda Lineup, the Super Cub makes excellent use of all 9.7 hp from the 123.9 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine, and a slick 4-speed semi-automatic transmission. You shift gears on a Super Cub with a normal motorcycle up/down toe action, but there is no clutch to worry about.
A huge part of the Super Cubs appeal is the classic step thru styling, low comfy seat, and large 17” wheels. Now the stylish classic looks hide so many secrets, for example, the smart-key ignition, or electronic seat release. Others are a bit more obvious like the LED lighting, or digital instrument cluster. What isn’t a secret is just how beloves the Honda Super Cub is around the world. Except in Canada, where it is not on sale for 2023. Go figure.
The 2023 Honda Super Cub starts at $ 3,849 USD / $ N/A CAD.

2023 Honda Super Cub C125 ABS Features
Nobody can match our reputation for engines, and even though the Super Cub is relatively compact, it’s a giant in terms of performance and reliability.
EASY TO PARK
Because the Super Cub is compact, it’s easy to park in the city, and to store when you’re not riding. There’s always room for a Super Cub!
HYDRAULIC FRONT DISC BRAKE
The Super Cub features a large front single disc brake for excellent stopping power. There’s even standard front-wheel ABS.
The Super Cub features a four-speed semi-automatic transmission that you shift with your left foot, like a traditional motorcycle. But here’s the unique feature: there’s no clutch to worry about—you just toe and go.
ELECTRIC SEAT OPENER
Need to release the seat latch for a fill-up? Just press a button—the lock is all electronically controlled on the Super Cub.
Old-school light bulbs may have been great in 1959, but 60 years later the Super Cub comes with a modern LED lighting package.
Just like our top-of-the-line Gold Wing, the Super Cub uses a convenient smart-key ignition.
This is one of the key design elements which made the original Cub so popular. The Super Cub’s step-through design incorporates frontal bodywork to help shield you from the wind and road splash. It’s not only super convenient, but makes it easy to get on and off the bike.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
At just 30.7 inches, the Super Cub’s super-low seat makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights.
MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS
Retro meets modern in the Super Cub’s instruments. The faired-in handlebar-mounted features speedometer, odometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, and indicator for low/high beam.
The Super Cub’s round headlight looks retro, but its LED performance is totally up to date and provides excellent illumination and visibility.
UNDERSEAT FUEL TANK
With its 1.0-gallon fuel tank and awesome fuel efficiency, the Super Cub is super practical. The tank filler is under the seat so it’s easy to access.
Our front-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (comes standard on the Super Cub) can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great feature whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence.
17-INCH CAST WHEELS
Big enough to roll along smoothly, the machine-finished cast construction on these wheels means they’re easier to keep clean than the traditional spoke design.
The Super Cub’s telescopic front suspension is partially faired in, blending with the upper bodywork. It looks awesome, and works a lot better than the original leading-link design.
Here’s another thoroughly modern touch: The Super Cub uses tubeless tires.
TWIN REAR SHOCKS
The original Cub had twin shocks, and so does the 2023 Super Cub. They not only look proper, but they also do a great job of smoothing out the road.
