Honda Cross cub

was reading a article of a new CBR 400R then on the bottom it mentioned honda will be making a bike called the cross cub looked at some pictures seems to be a homage to the old CT110

*throws money at his computer screen*

Does look like a perfect reinvention of the CT!

on honda's official japanese website it states new bikes to be shown at the osaka motorcycle show one of the names is the cross cub so will be the finished article possibly.

Did some searching and it seems it's a concept. Might have dual range from what I could read, everything is in Japanese. I doubt we'll ever see it.

Nice, if only they would bring a 250cc version to the US. I can dream can't I?

A few more photos here. Looks pretty cool, I hope it makes it to the US - who knows where we might go on a couple of these!

Lettering in English

nice I guess just like the Yamaha concept 110 cc scooter that did nearly 200 mpg will never see it here. They will not bring the cub here even though they just sold 60 million of them all together. Really wish motorcycle companies would take risks rather then do what some market research or Focus group says will work.

You are. Asians love to put English letters/words on their things, probably for the same reason we like to include Chinese or Japanese characters in our designs: they appear exotic.

and $600 (or less) will put in a Chinese 150CC engine that will kick ass up to about 60 or so. Perfect for that city commute.

a nice 20bhp 4 valve kit is what I would want for some added oomph and possible discbrakes all round. same deal with the current generation Honda Super cub japan exclusive a shame really. I love retro styled bike bikes why can't we get small bikes in homage to the past.
