Honda EV Cub

If you're not green or deserve the prefix super, then you're nothing at this year's Tokyo Motor Show — motorbikes included.

During its 50-plus years on sale and with over 60 million sold worldwide, the Honda Cub is the most popular motorised vehicle in the world. Powered by an almost indestructible 49cc — 0.049 litres! — single-cylinder, four-stroke engine, the Cub has been dubbed the greatest motorcycle of all time by the Discovery Channel. Looking to the future, Honda is working on the idea of an electric Cub.
