Some very cool versions in that video!
On the Harley the fob can be clipped to your belt and never touched again. I like that.
On the cub, at least in the videos I've seen, you need to push something on the fob to start the bike. Seems clunky and more prone to issues.
Many electric key fobs have a purpose designed Ft. Knox mentality regarding battery access. Some persistent cleverness will usually yield positive results so the battery can replaced yourself for a few dollars. But many people are helpless and head off to the dealer are reamed for $50 or more. I have heard $150 one time. That's brilliant "engineering", no?
Maybe Honda will have a Ft. Knox design, maybe not. If they do maybe there will be an option of buying a non-Ft. Knox one, for $200.
Regarding extra storage, I would think it should be possible for some clever folks to design a pannier that would attach to the side loops of the rear rack. I’m thinking of something with a rounded rectangle that would fit in the loop, with nylon/leather straps/buckles to tie it down. You could likely have a panel or arm extending from that to hold two half width Jerry cans of fuel, one on each side.
The key fob seems needless, (does it come with espresso machine too?) and I didn't realize until just now that there's no kickstarter. Bummer.
That's almost a dealbreaker. But that's all well and good. I'm just old-school, less is more type ...particularly on a bike like this. Utility trumps trendiness.
Here's what actually has me a bit concerned: I'm noticing some differences in the 2019 US version to most other countries. And this is sorta huge.
From what I've been able to tell, the US models will have: No rear footpegs.
1.) No rear footpegs...are the holes be tapped, or have they been filled by welds? (**Correction: Some models appear capped, some are not. The Super Cub pictured on top of the US Honda page comes with them, and a rear rack. (But the fine print plainly says: "Non US model shown")
As you may know, there are seats that fit right on top of the rear-rack and that's why they have rear-footpegs but no rear seat in the above pic.
However the one in this video, (which purports to be a US model).... does not have a rear rack OR rear footpegs.
2.) Another biggie is NO front reinforced basket mounting holes on fork plastics. Can it be modified? This is a huge setback unless somebody comes up with a work around.
3.) Can a windshield be mounted on the new bar setup?
I'm gonna put a basket on the front and a milk crate on the back to start and see how it goes. This buy is actually for the wife to go to work and back via back roads and around town should she want to . . . but who we kidding here, I'm probably gonna spend more time on this than my CB1100
At first I'm going to keep it 100% stock. Then see which accessories Honda offers for them. Can't wait!
Wish my local dealer would take a deposit on one, they only put my name on a list, I think I'm second or third.
+ $150 destination charge
I'll take a Cross Cub 125 without the Fob and with a kickstarter. For $1000 less. Don't even need the electric starter. With a milk crate off course.
100% agree but those 2 items aren't adding $1000 to the retail price. But, even if it was only $200 less I would prefer no electric start and no fob. Especially no fob.
Latest ride review of the 2019
While the new Super Cub is a true beauty, its a bit too "city" for me. The Cross Cub on the other hand, seems just about perfect for me. I agree with ya'll, no key fob ignition needed, no electric start even wanted. Give me a good sized and sturdy luggage rack, add a usb charging port and a gps mount, id be one happy man.
Yea, the cross cub is what I'm interested in.
I'd probably prefer the Cross Cub for utility. But judging how intentionally rare and difficult to obtain the Super Cub 125 is there's probably less than a snow-flakes chance in hell of the Cross Cub coming to the USA.
At a glance they appear to share a chassis.
If you have the coin you could probably go that direction with the 125 and still have the stronger motor.
Sadly for me the limiting factor is that even with the 125 motor they're still a bit slow for my area.
Tempting still but so far likely a no due to it's limitations and the limited nature of my garage space.
I have purchased from Japan a side stand and step bar with the ear to mount it since the US bike does not come with one.
Where did you get it from? I want to find the euro/jdm taillight, but I can't seem to find oem parts for different markets.
I might be doing it wrong, but I'll leave it here )
Does anybody know where to buy used japanese post crate (or similar one) for insalling on my Super Cub 2012. I plan to transport my bread (long 60 sm. baguets should feet in) in it.
and does it fit all long back rack or are there any restrictions/
Thanx in advance
Is that a OEM honda part? part number? where'd you get it?
Search in the main super Cub thread, all the info is there.
