Honda's electric take on the 1950's Cub, called the EV-Cub

The EV-Cub is a battery-powered interpretation Honda’s own Cub motorcycle, quite possibly one of the most popular forms of motorised transport known to man - with over 60m units sold since production began back in 1958.

The updated Cub features two-wheel drive and has electric motors inside the hubs of both its front and rear wheels.

Honda’s also cast the EV-Cub’s frame from die cast aluminium, while the bike’s lithium-ion battery is centrally mounted.

Honda also unveiled the EVE-Neo at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show

Rather more conventional looking is the EVE-Neo, which is powered by just one electric motor.

Honda hasn’t confirmed plans to manufacture the EV-Cub or EVE-Neo. ®
