Honda Super Cub Concept and EV-Cub Concept TMS-10

Cars weren’t the only items at Honda’s Tokyo Motor Show stand – there were a host of motorcycles to be found as well, and the two-wheeled displays were led by the Super Cub Concept and EV Cub Concept, both of which premiered at the show.

The EV Cub is, as its moniker suggests, an electric bike; the battery in the short-distance personal commuter is mounted low in the centre, offering the bike a low centre of gravity as well as making mounting and dismounting an easier affair. The EV Cub’s detachable battery – which can be used to provide power for external applications – can be recharged via a household power socket.

As for the Super Cub Concept, the petrol-based study is a nod to the original Super Cub design-wise, but given more flair. The Candy Blue Metallic and Light Blue Pearl colour scheme is also a homage to the Super Cub. Modern retro-looking kapchai, anyone?

Other two-wheeled studies included the Light Weight Super Sports Concept, which hints at the design direction that will be seen in a next-generation super sport model as well as the GROM50 Scrambler Concept, presented in two variations called the One and Two. Also on display was the recently-introduced CRF1000L Africa Twin, which is due to make its market debut before the year is out.
