Honda has now built 100 million Super Cubs
Honda recently reached a rare milestone when it announced that the cumulative worldwide production of its most popular two-wheeler, the Honda Super Cub, has reached 100 million units. Production of the first-ever Honda Super Cub, the C100, had begun in 1958 at Honda's Yamamoto factory, located to the north of Tokyo, Japan. Over the years, the Honda Super Cub went on to be built in 16 factories across 15 countries before hitting its milestone. The Super Cub design has proved iconic enough to be granted a three-dimensional trademark registration from Japan in 2014. To mark this feat, Honda had held a special ceremony at its factory in Kumamoto, Japan, attended by Honda president and CEO Takahiro Hachigo.
Speaking at the ceremony, Hachigo said that the Honda Super Cub, which was created in Japan, embodies Honda's passion to serve people worldwide with the joy of expanding their life's potential by pursuing uncompromising product development that puts customers first. "As a result, Super Cub series has long been enjoyed by customers all over the world and was able to reach the 100 million-unit milestone in worldwide cumulative production. Honda will continue to be at the forefront of the changing times and strive to offer products that go beyond the expectations of our customers," he said.
