Another Retro Small Displacement Machine
Honda has been killing it with the small displacement motorcycles lately, specifically the retro machines. The Monkey and Super Cub hit all the right nostalgia points, and now it seems that Honda will bring back the CT to sit alongside those bikes in its lineup.
As Asphalt & Rubber points out, this is a very logical move for Honda. The bike was the trail equivalent to the Super Cub, and it makes sense to bring it back with a modern engine and electronics. Honda is making the most of the 125cc engine it first put on the Grom. Now there are several bikes with this engine, and the CT125 will be the same deal.
Personally, I love the look of these things. I’ve thought long and hard about buying a Super Cub, but now that I know this bike is coming, I’d be much more interested in purchasing one of these. The Super Cub is a killer bike, and I’d love to own one at some point soon, but the CT125 will be able to do some mild trail riding, and that’s pretty enticing to me. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for the reveal of this bike in Tokyo and for any other news surrounding it.
