Honda Super Cub 125 | The highlight of this year’s edition of the motor show in Bangkok was the yesteryear’s bike Honda Super Cub’s 2018 edition 125 cc edition. The bike has been in production since 1958 and in 2017 Honda produced about 100-million of these – which says a lot about its popularity even now. On the specs front it has little to offer as it carries its 1958 model’s tenets. Pure Nostalgia!

Honda Monkey 125 | Following on the nostalgia trail, Honda’s Monkey 125 at the Bangkok Motor Show captured people’s attention too. Like the Super Cub, the Monkey or the Z series came out in the 60s and was loved by one and all. Interestingly, the reason why it came to be known as the Monkey was the way people used to look like while riding these bikes. Again, little to offer on specs but it is like what Beetle if for Volkswagen.
