The ubiquitous Honda Cub, or kapchai, is where many bikers first cut their riding teeth. With Honda projecting sales of the Honda Cub – first sold in 1958 – to reach a total of 100 million units in 2017, it has put together a project to gather Cub owners and lovers worldwide together.

A website – click here – has been created to allow for Honda Cub owners from around the world to post pictures of themselves with their Cubs of any generation. There are some simple rules to participate in the website, first by joining up, then uploading and properly sizing your photograph according to the guidelines.

There are no prizes, save for the satisfaction of participation and being part of the global Cub family. Except for the North and South poles, there is unlikely to be anywhere in the world you cannot find a Honda Cub.

In Malaysia, the Honda EX5 Dream Fi is the culmination of 50 years of kapchais, with its air-cooled, single-cylinder 109.1 cc engine. Fed by Honda’s PGM-Fi, the EX5 Dream puts out a claimed 8.35 hp at 7,500 rpm and 8.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The standard model Honda EX5 Dream Fi – with spoked wheels and tubed tyres – is sold in Malaysia at RM4,715.94 for kickstart, and RM4,959.74 for electric start. There is also a 2017 Honda EX5 Dream Limited Edition which retails at RM4,874.94.
