They were both antiquated during the majority of their production. In stock form, they are hopelessly inadequate in modern U.S. traffic conditions. Both will have their top speeds easily manipulated by hills and wind direction. The VW and the Honda can be cobbled back into some sort of functionality with wire, duct tape and maybe a crescent wrench, but are also easy to repair properly. Most importantly, they are both a blast to drive/ride, and piloting one always put a smile on my face.

The Volkswagen Beetle of motorcycles, my Honda Super Cub

This is a cool thread. Great idea
And I guess this is the best match so far

This is how I always compare my bike when explaining it:

The bike, a Kawasaki Concours 14:



Has roughly the same acceleration as a Ferrari 458:



The comfort and style of a Nissan 370Z roadster:



The fuel economy of a Prius:



All for the price of a Ford Fiesta:


Otherwise, I just say it's the 370Z of bikes. Open air, good luggage capacity, fast, frugal, fun.

The Concourse has Testarossa written all over it, with those scalloped sides.

Funny you should mention that. About a month after I bought mine, I was riding on the highway and came upon a Testarossa from the 80's. Thumbs up were given, and then the fellow decided to take off. I caught him quicker than he expected...

I think Car and Driver described them as the cheese grater sides.
