If I were ever asked what’s Honda’s best motorcycle ever, I’d be inclined to answer the Cub, a bike that was more than a means of transportation, it was a craze.
Besides the low price, simple design and robust engineering, the small bike managed to get the attention of the world and sold out.
Recently I heard about the Honda CG110, a bike built in Nigeria for the local populace, and the first thing that came to mind was the Cub. While the shape might not fit, the overall design cues and the very low price has to have come from the Cub. If it will carry 30 large pizzas and run on cooking oil, all doubts will be shattered.

It is not easy to think of a car running on the tracks at the top speed of 207 mph, and sprinting from 60 in just 2.9 seconds, making use of its full 618 horsepower, unless it is the only McLaren MP4-12C Spider. First on the track, then on the August`s Pebble Beach Concours d`Elegance.
