The Super Cub C125 ABS makes a great ride for novices and experienced riders alike. It has a semi-auto, four-speed transmission, and a step-through frame that makes it easy to climb on and off of.
Honda started producing Cubs in the 1950s, so it doesn’t get very much more retro. With super ergonomics, a comfortable seat, and great mileage, this bike makes an excellent daily drive in the city. Honda is selling the 2020 model off the showroom floor at $3,649, making it one of the more affordable options on our list.
