The Super Cub looks really nifty. The Monkey, well, I never understood the aesthetics of those bikes. I'd probably get the Grom instead.

I like them both.  It would be interesting to park the new Monkey bike next to an original Mini Trail to show how much larger it is than the original.

Yeah the super Cub looks amazing. I had a C70 back when I was 15 or 16 and couldn't get it running so I sold it. Really regret that.

I'd commute on a Super Cub.

Is it weird to say that I'd swap in spoked wheels on the cub.

My wife still has her Passport that she got back in 1983 or 84. It's in a shed at her parents house. Not been started since maybe 1986. I need to drag it home and get it running.

Never realized just how small the grom was until we got one to display at work.  

Doesn't help that I'm 6'3" but damn that thing is tiny.

I was thinking the same thing.  I also wonder if a disk brake is really necessary on a bike that can maybe go 45mph.

In reply to stuart in mn :

Nah. I think it's cheaper now.

The discs make it really easy to integrate ABS, which is required in the EU for bigger bikes, and people would want on smaller bikes as well.

As a near daily rider of a drum brake bike, yes, drums are wooden as all hell. You don't want one if there is a choice.
