Here’s something I would have never noticed without a tip from Tom, but the Honda 50 Super Cub, a motorcycle that
last year 2 years ago went over the 50 million unit mark in numbers produced is adapting for the future by adding electronic fuel injection. I guess Honda figures this little workhorse, still sold in 160 countries (that seems to be almost everywhere but the U.S.), has a lot of life left in it.
PGM-FI is a fuel injection system developed by Honda which believes small motorcycles still used in many countries can use cleaner exhaust and better mileage, just like their bigger brothers. In that pursuit, the system has now been added to the Super Cub 50. It looks like this is already used on their 50cc scooters.
It makes you wonder how long the Super Cub will continue. That is one amazing run and at this rate we may see another 50 million units.
Thanks for the tip, Tom!
