What’s the Cub Motorcycle?

A “Cub” motorcycle refers to a type of lightweight, small-engined motorcycle that is known for its simplicity, efficiency, and ease of use. One of the most iconic examples of this type is the Honda Super Cub. The Super Cub is renowned for its step-through design and underbone frame, which differ from traditional motorcycles that typically have a step-over frame.

The term “Cub” comes from the specific model name used by Honda, but it has since been used more broadly to describe similar motorcycles from other manufacturers that share the basic design characteristics. These bikes often have an engine size ranging from 50cc to 125cc, making them very accessible for beginners and popular for commuting in urban and rural areas due to their low running costs, reliability, and ease of maintenance. They typically feature automatic or semi-automatic transmissions, which add to their appeal as easy-to-ride vehicles.
