The Honda Super Cub - factory to showrrom

Serving 100 million happy customers is a well-achieved milestone for any business, and no other manufacturer but Honda could have made it seem this easy. Being the first two-wheeler to cross such a mark is the Japanese Red Wing’s Super Cub that began its life way back in 1958.

As a matter of fact, 2018 bears a distinct significance for the Super Cub, marking its 60th anniversary. And to commemorate this Honda has released a video showcasing the journey from the factory to the showroom floors

The moped is being made at 16 plants spread across 15 countries around the world that serves customers in more than 160 countries. That is some mind-boggling numbers considering the popularity and logistics involved with the Super Cub.

Over the year, the Japanese fine-tuned the Super Cub to evolve with the generations, and yet the basic concept has remained unchanged since the introduction of the first-generation, and its original style has been carried forward even to current models. This iconic design even managed to become the first one ever to obtain a three-dimensional trademark registration in Japan.
