In Japan Honda had the Super Cub but developed the MD50 and MD90 specifically for the Japan postal service. The MD shared many features with the Cub – step-through, clutchless gears – but had smaller, thicker wheels for riding in wet and snowy conditions and reinforced suspension for bouncing up and down kerbs.
The Australian postal service had slightly different requirements. First off, they needed more power as things are a bit more spread out there. The population density of Japan is 336 people per square kilometre. In Australia it’s 3.2. (Somewhat surprisingly, the UK is 395, but I digress.) Secondly, while they weren’t worried about sleet and snow, they did want something that could be taken off-road. Some Australian citizens are inconsiderate enough to live in quite out of the way places.
So they developed the CT110, a 105cc four-stroke with a raised exhaust. Basically this is a small-bore, ultra-reliable enduro of a kind rarely seen in this country. This one comes with the hi-lo gearbox.
At the end of the day, what does this bike give you? Without a doubt it is a strong, rugged, lightweight bike that can be taken off-road. It has a very large rack on the back, dual side stands, centre stand and locking front brake. In addition, it is easy and enjoyable to ride. Thirdly, it is striking and unusual and will attract lots of smiles, perhaps even the odd wave.
