If that Cross Cub ever makes it to the U.S., I will probably trade my Zuma 125 for it. Having real gears means it will climb and there are no belts to break. Hopefully the Honda will be a bit sturdier than the Symba.

Coming from a dirt racing background, that was what swayed me away from scoots. I thought, "shit i could easily get stuck!" (on any steep incline). I would have any Zuma for town and some light off road, but a ct or cub etc will get you to some crazy places. God Bless and long live the cult following these bikes have, I'm totally in.

So what is a Cross Cub? Looks like an old CT110 with more plastic and redundant tubes and without the dual range gear box. My old CT90/140 would beat it in every way except for looks. Lighter, more rugged, more power, WAY cheaper.

I definitely agree it would be worth more with the dual range gearbox. They really come in handy climbing steep hills with a heavy load. A small bike will climb anything with a low enough gear. That's really where CVT transmissions come up short.

Honda should have imported this instead of that silly Grom. Looks like it needs better quality plastic though.

It has possibilities. I think it looks like the love child of a CT110 and a Ruckus. But who is that Green Beret dude in the last photo supposed to impress? Unless he's out hunting squirrel, I don't see how you could drive home with a deer draped over that thing and still get anywhere.

TYoo bad. I would buy one of those. I started out on an old Trail 90 with the dual range transmission, and rode the piss out of it. My buddy had the older version with the quick change sprocket set up. They were one tough motorcycle.
