I'm a big fan of the basic underbone design because they're rugged and highly efficient. Over the last 40+ years I've kept at least one old Trail 90 around and have put 5800 miles on the CT90/140 since last March. It takes a pounding on the trails nearly every day and keeps on going.

BTW My daughter has a 1965 Cub with a Lifan 110cc engine and my ex-wife who lives in Thailand has a Yamaha underbone.

IMO, They can be considered as "gas mileage champ".

Mine has a Yamaha T105 (called Vega R, the pic below), bought used from friend with about 64k kilometers (about 40k miles), still can go vigorously and get more than 1L/50 km (about 120 mpg) with constant 45 mph. Just replaced the piston set, and i want to modify it to use hand-actuated clutch. (

Anyway, Is Honda really want to bring the C-Series back to the U.S.?
