I really had myself down as owning one of these, but at £3400, with no pillion pegs and £90 for a rear rack I decided against one. My dealer offered me the first one he got but I said no.
Im cured!!!!!!! :shock:
Not seen one in the flesh yet though.

Horrible, isn't it! Presumably it comes with an optional giant sized topbox for fast food delivery purposes? Or has the Cub moved on from being practical transport to hip-urban plaything??

I get the feeling it'll 'bomb' I have fond memories of my cub days, but I won't be reliving them at that price

At £3,400, a hip urban plaything me thinks.

btw the new monkey bike gets a glowing review in the latest edition of On2Wheels. Probably rather have a Cub though....mainly 'cos of the heritage. Would have to try and work out the semi-auto gearbox though. However, a decent 125 T&G scoot would be much more practical though, with more storage. The Forza 125 is much more desirable, but that costs nearly £5k!

When Honda announced it was coming I assumed it would be priced less than the SH125, less even than the PCX125, it looks a lot cheaper to make, I was expecting a price around £2400, which is where it seems to fit in their 125 scooter range. I was going to buy one to go on a rack behind the motorhome, it would be ideal given its super lightweight.......

But at £3695 they are simply taking the p**s.
