Too cool. Takes me back to 1990 when I was 16 and bought a '67 Supercub...I think it was called a C100 back then, even though it was a 50. My first form of motorised transport...loved it, used to keep all my mates 2 stroke 50s honest and sounded a heap better! What a great year that was for the Japanese auto industry...NSX, LS400, MX5...I digress, getting all nostalgic, damn these retro things!

Honda sez: "Hmmm, none of this new stuff is working...let's dig deep into our bag of tricks and try this one again..."

Hope it works, the success of the Grom probably bodes well for this one, too.

I agree strongly. I think a freshly-styled, retro-themed car from Honda would do well, if done as well as this Super Cub. It could break us out of this "Angry Robot / Leering Face" school of styling that has taken over the entire industry.

One more note on the new Super Cub...it almost equals the first Accord's MSRP.

Looked up the value of a 1958 $ today...it is as follows: $245 in 1958 equals $2,126.70 in 2018. So I we are over $1,000 higher than just inflation would justify on the new Cub. But I guess you have to take into account all the goodies that have been added to the bike.

And the $/Yen exchange rate has to be a big factor...in 1958, one of our dollars bought 360 Yen...today only 110. So between inflation and the change in exchange rates, I guess we are lucky they could even bring it in at this price. Just hope the customers think so, too.
