Firefly / Deus Japan


Unless you were born and raised on an Antarctic research station, you’ve probably seen a Honda Super Cub. It’s the most popular motor vehicle in the world, with over 85 million sold since 1958.

We bet you haven’t clapped eyes on a Cub like this one, though. It comes from the warped imagination of Matthew Roberts, the new Director of Motorcycle Operations at Deus Japan.

It’s called the Firefly, it’s a 1961 model, and it’s weirdly beautiful. It’s a raw and functional beauty, though—taking inspiration from the small-cap GP and TT bikes of the 1950s and 1960s — via Bike EXIF
