The First Honda Export Motorcycle 1958 Honda Cub
The Honda Super Cub reached 50 million units at the end of December 2005.
A favorite with customers since its launch in 1958, the Super Cub has become the first motor vehicle to achieve total worldwide production of 50 million units.
The first-generation Super Cub made its debut in Japan in 1958.
At a time when 2-stroke engines were the predominant engine form, the Super Cub was fitted with a revolutionary, high-performance 50cc 4-stroke engine that offered superb economy and durability.
The creative design also featured a low-floor backbone frame for convenient mounting and dismounting, a lever-free centrifugal clutch for easy shifting, large plastic leg shields to protect riders' legs from dirt and wind, and other innovations.
