Read Honda is returning/bringing Honda Cub to US market later this year. I think in the $3500-$3600 price range---125cc, 4 speed, center stand and chain case----will look into as my next 2 wheel purchase.

30 years ago on Okinawa had new C-90 3 speed cub....unbreakable/easy to work on and could even be fun to ride. No expensive maint. costs.

I hauled garbage/groceries/all kinds of stuff----with right cheap windshield and legshields good in rain---seat hurt butt a little after an hour or so in the saddle.

Cub very interesting for me---top speed should be in the 55-60mph range---over 10 HP Freeway legal? Me, happy to take trip on one, much easier to work on than scooter, cheap chain, squirt a little oil on it now and then, lasts as long as bike---no belt change issues as scooter presents. And, oh, should not be heavy.

The first bike I rode was a Honda Super 90 way back in the early 60s. It was a friends and he let me take it for a ride. I rode it around Minneapolis for about an hour or so and I think that's what got me hooked. It was sure a lot of fun.

When I went back to Japan for 2nd time in 1966, I went from new Harley Sidecar outfit to a Honda CS-90.....and I enjoyed it. Bike different than US model as it had chain case. Did burn exhaust valve running wide open in mountains---that time really cheap to fix in Japan.

Honda c50 cub C100 was my first bike, rode it and 2 others like it round a school for 2 years, even bought a scrap c102 electric start model and swapped the engine and electrics over, not bad at 13 years old ! At 17 my 3 month old cd175 was in a hit and run, guess what i bought to keep mobile, a Hond 50 c100. Greta bikes, the old push rod model was a doddle to strip and fix.

As I am 2 and a half years from retiring thought id get a Honda 90 as a run around but the prices are extortionate. Honda did a step through in the UK a couple of years back that was 125 and semi automatic, think it was the innova. Might be a new version of that.

I've got a Yamaha Townmate T80, shaft drive, 4 gears, a bigger tank. It is useful to have in the garage and now is quite rare in the UK.

I had a used Honda C90 Cub for a time back in the Eighties, purely as a ride to work bike and winter hack. I found it utterly bland and boring to ride and couldn't summon up any enthusiasm for it at all.

Anyway one night some local scrote stole the tax disc off it when it was parked up outside the flat I had then. Then a few weeks later he/they returned and stole the bike. I reported the theft to the Police of course, but decided it wasn't worth claiming on my insurance for the theft.

Cub same engine as Grom. Grom boasts 134 mpg. Only $200 more than Grom with toe and go transmission, no clutch.

A bit pricey for a 125 cc, but Honda quality and the fun may be worth it.

Some extreme-miles Grom riders on ADV Rider forum.

Either of the above would be lots of fun, and if you get stuck in a ditch, just lift it out and go.

Grom has front and rear disk brakes.

Cub will have front ABS and rear drum.

Over here in Australia Australia Post use Honda Super Cubs for mail deliveries. 110cc fuel injected, 4 speed but drums front and rear. My son wanted one for commuting and bought one thru the auctions. They are a fun little bike. I am thinking of getting one for my self and ditching the Aprilia

I keep thinking of getting a 125cc Innova, would be much more convenient for nipping abot locally than the SilverWing, just need to convince 'the keeper of the coins' Evil or Very Mad

I'm keeping my PCX for shorter/in-city runs, but that new Cub looks pretty interesting.
