The design of the new iteration of the 110 pays homage to all the models that came before it while demonstrating current features and a revised design. When the 38th annual Osaka Motorcycle Show started on March 19, 2022, Honda knew they would be unveiling the latest iteration of the Honda Super Cub 110 during the event. The 2023 Honda ST125 Dax also makes its debut at this event. However, while Honda has released a plethora of information on the 2023 Honda ST125 Dax, he took the opposite strategy regarding the new Honda Super Cub 110. That said, at least a few details are known at this point.

The traditional “Super Cub” styling will remain in its simple, classic glory, though upgraded and refined to be more updated and modern. Further away, the color palette is yellow and cream, complete with a black rear rack, brown saddle and matte cast alloy wheels. A new clock display will also be featured on the speedometer, and ABS and a front disc brake are now standard features. A new engine will also be shown, but Honda hasn’t specified which engine it will be, or its known specs, other than that it’s designed to maximize efficiency with both torque and power. fuel economy.

Tubeless tires are a new feature, making their debut on the 110 here. The new Super Cub 110 also meets Tier 7 emission standards, passing all the tests necessary to achieve this requirement. Honda also noted that the overall appearance will be of a higher standard than the junior Honda Wave Alpha, and this new Super Cub 110 is part of a series of new motorcycle models that Honda plans to debut for 2022. However, before this motorcycle makes its way to the United States, it will first be sold exclusively in Japan.

Honda Super Cub 110: Similar design to 125

The Super Cub 125 is where many of the design elements of this new 110 were borrowed from. The new 125 was unveiled last summer after it was first unveiled at the 2021 Bangkok Motor Show. Much of the design was copied and pasted. That said, while the 125 had a more black and red color scheme, the new 110 opted for the aforementioned yellow and cream combo.

Ironically, in a more comprehensive move, the 125’s redesigned crankcases were taken from an earlier 110 in the Japanese market. The top end, however, came from a redesigned Honda Grom. The visual appearance of the exhaust echoes that of previous bikes. For the most part, the 110 uses the digital display of the 125. And, of course, the new 110 has tubeless tires like the 125.

The Super Cub’s marketing campaign titled “You Meet the Nicest People on a Honda” succeeded in both revitalizing the brand and making motorcycling idealized in America. The Super Cub 50 and the Super Cub 110 received technical updates and fresh styling for the commemorative model. That said, the engine remained largely unchanged, with a few exceptions designed to reduce friction. LED lighting was introduced for both the round headlight and turn signals to increase the longevity of the bikes.

Commuter and Professional versions of the Commemorative model are available, but they were only available in Japan, where they are also made. It helps that the Super Cub 110 commemorative model was specially designed for display at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show, to celebrate the motorcycle’s 60th anniversary and reach 100 million units produced worldwide.

The Super Cub began production in 1958 and has stood the test of time by successfully continuing production in one form or another. It now has over a dozen factories worldwide in over a dozen countries making a Super Cub variant. Honda has taken several steps to keep the aesthetic design fresh and all the parts modern, updated and functional to keep the Super Cub favorable in the public eye.

Soichiro Honda, company founder and president, personally led the development team, aiming to design a bike that is both easy to control and very compact. A constant goal has been to keep the Super Cub durable and performing admirably, which explains its continued popularity.
