Honda Releases Limited-Edition Scooter Inspired by Anime Film ‘Weathering with You’
Honda is releasing a scooter inspired by Natsumi’s wheels in the hit anime movie “Tenki ni Ko,” or “Weathering with You.”
The scooter, which comes in pink complete with a special sticker, brown seat and a free pink-and-white striped helmet, will be released in two models: Super Cub 50 and Super Cub 110, according to the automaker’s official post via SoraNews24.
The difference between the two models is the size of the engine and will, unfortunately, only be sold in Japan.
The Super Club 50 will reportedly come equipped with a 50 cubic centimeter engine while the other is powered by 110 cubic centimeters, Crunchyroll reported.
The 50CC will only require a permit that costs 5,000 yen ($46) to drive, while the more powerful version will require a full driver’s license.
Honda will only produce 500 models for the Super Club 50 and 1,500 models for the Super Club 110. The Super Club 50 and Super Club 110 are being retailed for 269,500 yen ($2,511) and 313,500 yen ($2,921), respectively.
Orders for the scooter can now be placed on Honda’s website until October 31 or while supplies last. Deliveries are expected to start on July 23.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
