New generation Honda Cub with EV and 2WD!

What some cult bike enthusiasts have called the worlds best motorcycle will be remade by Honda this time with a 2WD electric drive.

The iconic Honda Cub 50 4 stroke was probably the worlds most economical production bike.

Neat! I could live without the fancy electronic driver distractions though.

Engine cut-off... hmmm... I think I want to be in charge of that. Maybe not.

Immediately that didnt appeal either, okay with prius and insight cause a starter motor wont wear out. 50km/l for a 125 is okay but no world beater. My FX125 did 50km/l

The EV Cub looks cute as a button. Like Mini and Fiat 500, an iconic classic, remade today. The new Fiat 500 was a hit in Europe. If the New Cub goes as well as it looks, could be a goodie.

That thing is so retro-sexy... I'd love to have one. It's just not fiscally do-able, though.

Nah, you don't. Honda says so. They know what they're talking about, too.

That they hate their current customers does them no good.

I like the looks too, and compared to the Smart is down right sexy! In fact, everything about this motorcycle seems (can't say for sure) better than the Smart.Love the headlights on it as well.
Sure sounds to me one hell of a motorcycle to buy.
