Design and Features
One of the key elements that made the Cub popular is a step-through chassis. Of course, it hasn’t been changed on a new model and in combination with the round headlight, the bike has a famous retro look appealing to all kinds of people.
However, some fancy and modern features are included to meet the standards nowadays. Speedometer, odometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, A&B trip meters, clock and an indicator for low/high beam are all mounted on the handlebars.
Furthermore, a 1.0-gallon fuel tank is used and it is located under the seat. As you may guess, the fuel efficiency on this bike is superb and the tank is easy to fill up and access in the first place.
What else is there?
One of the conveniences is the use of a smart-key ignition. Even though this is a retro-looking bike, light bulbs are not used. They may have been perfect for the 1960s but they had to be ditched. Instead of light bulbs, the 2019 model comes with LED lighting, as expected.
The seats are quite special as well. Honda thought of everything when they added an electric seat opener. With one press of a button, you can get your seat up and check the fuel tank. Speaking of seats, you should know that the bike is positioned at just 30.7 inches. Because of that, driving through congested traffic will not be difficult because you will be able to put your feet on the ground easily. Also, this goes for parking.
And that only tells you how comfortable the Super Cub C125 ABS is. Sure, this bike isn’t built for speeds, but it is just a perfect for city transportation.
