    Never saw anything legitimate about this bike in the first place.

    2020 'Hunter' Cub CT125? Disc brakes, maybe ABS for some markets?

    I think this will still happen at some point!

    It might be 2 or 3 years away and might actually replace the Super Cub 125 as a mass production slightly lower cost model. I think a duel sport version of something like the Super Cub 125 would be more appealing to the mass market. Just my opinion of coarse!

    It will begin selling in India this month. There may be hope for the US.

    Hope that isn't just a Photoshop. Disc rear brake, don't see that happening.

    If it comes here I'll be adding that one and figuring out where to stuff it in the garage. Wall mount rack for the Cubs.

    Living in NoVA that Hunter Cub looks about perfect for running the MABDR. And those dirt roads in the Smokey's, yeah. Light is right.

    It looks like a photoshop. The passenger pegs don’t look right.

    Is that a cat or something under the engine. Looks like the exhaust makes a detour on the way to the muffler. That has gotta go!

    The rear does look edited, especially compared to this 'CC125':

    Yes, and the engines in all of these "secret" pics are too large, out of proportion - probably nabbed from a Monkey pic, I'd hazard.

    Unless it's a 200cc shoehorned in there... :dukegirl

    I was ready to impulse buy a Monkey but now I’m 100% ready to commit to pre-ordering one of these if they make it to the states. Loved my Trail 90. Here’s hoping!

    I would love to see a bike like this, preferably with non ABS drum brakes, sold in the U.S. But they don't seem to realize the size of most Americans. I have plenty of older CT90s and CT110s to choose from. Why haven't I bought one? The seat. I did sit on a couple, and while I could squeeze myself on them, it would be impossible to have a relaxing day putting around off road on one. There is just not enough room. American models need a full length seat. Since they have a luggage rack, and rack mounts, I'm sure a full sized seat could be fabricated. I just don't know what would be involved.

    As far as the Monkey goes, I thought about one, but they do not have anywhere near enough load capacity for me. Plus my local Honda dealer is now selling them for more than $5600 OTD. I could get a VanVan for that, and it would be much better suited for what I want it for (very mild off road riding)

    Yeah I’d be surprised if in the history of cub productions someone didn’t make a bench seat, maybe if this thing’s popular enough.

    I’m not seeing too many videos of them in Japan only some odd ones that have a non-color matched black fairing, maybe they’re not selling well over there?

    Yeah, here in the U.S. they sell small dual sports, but even though the engines may be small, the seat is too high for me to get on without something to stand on. And the prices are crazy. I'm starting to look at a Chinese dual sport. I now have an idea for something I can carry around that I can stand on to help me get on and off the bike.

    Come on Honda. Bring this to the USA! Better do it soon too. I may buy my last motorcycle pretty soon, and ne of these would be very fitting. My first motorcycle was a used Honda Trail 90. I have seemingly, at least for now, won a fight against prostate cancer, and this would make a fine island bike for me. Make animals ld geezer happy, and sellmea new Honda Cross Cub.
