Honda’s Super Cub motorcycle is the most significant product in Honda’s entire history with over 100 million of the bikes produced since introduced in 1958. Honda recently celebrated the construction of the 100 millionth Super Cub, and without those sales over the years we may not have had a NSX, Odyssey, CRX, Civic, or Accord.
- The Super Cub motorcycle is Honda’s most significant product in its entire company history, first produced in 1958 with over 100 million produced since.
- Brought to the United States in 1959, during Honda’s push to break out beyond the Japan market, it was unlike any motorcycle that had come before.
- So let us take a moment to celebrate the wee Super Cub. Without it, there might be no NSX, no Odyssey, no CRX, no Civic, and no Accord.
“Brought to the United States in 1959, during Honda’s push to break out beyond the Japan market—the company also was making its first exploratory runs at the Isle of Man TT at the same time—the little Super Cub, for all its friendliness, was serious business for the young company.”
