Global transportation star: the 50 cc Honda Cub

An amazing Japanese contribution to evolving technology is seen in the Honda Cub, a 50 cc motor bike that is still being sold across the globe. It is cheap, fuel efficient, easy to repair. It is also able to carry families ( 3 to 4 people at a time) or considerable loads. See the Honda Metropolitan scooter for the latest US version of the Cub 50.

The British vertical twin design, seen in the Triumph, BSA and Norton,
has lost favor. But the vertical twin design influenced Japanese engineers such as Soichiro Honda.

The V-twin design of Harley Davidson has lasted in the marketplace, though the design is outmoded.
