Honda Releases Final Installment From Limited Edition 50 Years Of Racing Merchandise Range

October 23, 2009 – Hi! My name is Super Cub and I’m the mascot for the most popular powered vehicle of all time. It was only three years after the Super Cub motorcycle made its debut in 1958 that Honda won its first ever World Racing Championship, and look how far we’ve come! With over 600 championship wins to our credit, Honda has dominated on and off the race track ~ Super Cub

This year marks Honda’s 50th anniversary of participation in World Championship racing, starting with the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy in 1959 and to celebrate, the remaining instalments in the 50 Years of Racing Limited Edition range have just been released.

The 12” high ‘Super Cub’ bear is made of high quality materials and comes in a collector’s gift box, complete with a unique numbered certificate to certify it is one of only 2000 produced (RRP $75).

According to Graeme Baynes, Accessories Product Manager, ‘Super Cub’ bear was produced to provide a piece of memorabilia that embodies the Honda dream.

“Our line of merchandise has grown incredibly over the past couple of years, particularly in the area of commemorative racing. Given how dedicated our racing fans are and the amount of interest in motorsport in Australia, these items are sure to move quickly.”

The unique 50th Anniversary watch is also now available, however with only 250 made, this collectable will not be obtainable for very long. Consisting of a Genuine Carbon Fibre dial, stainless steel case with black aluminium fixed bezel and laser engraved logos, this special limited edition watch is 10ATM water resistant and comes complete with a 50th Anniversary black leather look box with a statement of authenticity (RRP $285).

These final instalments, along with the limited edition T-shirt, A1 Sized Framed Illustration and Keyring are all available at Honda dealerships nationwide.
