Honda Scrambles Its Best-Selling Small Moto With The Rugged ‘Hunter Cub’

Mar 31, 2020

First released in 1958, Honda’s Cub model has long been one of the best-selling vehicles on the planet, with well-over 1,000,000 units being sold across the little scoot’s 62-year production run. Last year at the Tokyo Motor Show Honda pulled the cover off of the CT125 Concept, a scrambled version of the Japanese moto marque’s Super Cub 125. Fast-forward to today and Big Red has now revealed that the concept is entering production for the 2021 model year as the CT125 Hunter Cub.

The new Hunter Cub is equipped with various off-road elements, including crash bars and a small skid plate, spoked wheels, a rear luggage rack, a high-mount exhaust, and bolstered suspension travel and tank capacity. The Hunter Cub’s off-road flavor — like most modern scrambler models — is limited largely to aesthetics, with the new Honda being more of a design excursive than an attempt at a genuine off-road-capable vehicle. Thus far, the Hunter Cub is only slated for release in the Japanese market in June (with a $4,080 MSRP), though Honda has filed design patents for the ruggedized Cub model in Europe, and trademarked the model name in the US, so there’s a decent chance this rugged little scoot will eventually hit American and European shores.
