Honda reveals returning miniMOTO, Scooter, Trial models

American Honda has announced its returning two-wheel products for model-years 2023 and 2024. Honda’s retro inspired Trail125 receives a new engine and a new color for 2023. The efficiency-focused advancements align the popular model with its miniMOTO relatives, especially the Super Cub.

Returning for the 2024 model year, the iconic Ruckus and classic Metropolitan scooters will continue to provide approachable and practical urban transportation. On the trials front, the two Montesa Cota 4RT models are back for 2023, following another incredible season of FIM World Trials competition in which Repsol Honda’s Toni Bou captured his record 32nd world title.

“Each of these models has a rich history and a loyal following, so we’re pleased to continue offering them for our customers,” says Brandon Wilson, manager of Sports & Experiential, American Honda. “From the affordable and user-friendly Trail125, Ruckus and Metropolitan to the highly specialized Montesa Cota 4RT models, Honda takes great pride in serving all types of two-wheel enthusiasts, regardless of how they choose to pursue their particular adventure.”


Honda’s Trail125 is proof that classics never go out of style. Inspired by the original Honda CT models of the 1960s, the model has an authentic, vintage look. Its state-of-the-art technology enables confidence-inspiring performance and modern riding comfort. As the rugged cousin of the Super Cub, the Trail125 is suited for everything from urban adventures to casual off-road treks.
