30 mph is the maximum speed in trail gearing on the Honda CT90.

Need to transport a deceased moose after a successful hunt? Throw it over the back of this huge carrier and the CT90 will still get you where you need to go.

Many of the parts in the CT range were lifted from other Honda step-throughs which sold in the millions. While Norton was making 200 bikes a week in Birmingham, Honda was producing 200 Cubs a minute.
