Honda Super Cub Gets Electric Treatment - Honda recently announced the return of their Super Cub model to America. However, interestingly enough this model has been around for 60 years and has already been a staple bike in many countries, including China. One shop in Shanghai is even offering buyers the opportunity to get hands-on and convert their Super Cub to electric power. China is encouraging cleaner alternatives and for riders to trade petrol engines for electric ones. Shanghai Customs came up with the eCub project as a result, which offers new buyers the fully electric Super Cub, and also offers a conversion kit to riders who already owned a Super Cub. We’re interested to see if this idea will spread to our market as electric bikes become more popular. Read More
