MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Koguma, a reserved second-year high school student, has nothing—no parents, hobbies, friends, or goals. On her way home one afternoon, she visits a vehicle shop in hopes of acquiring a motor scooter. With only enough money to make ends meet, she is disheartened by the price tags and prepares to turn back. However, as she is about to leave, the shop’s owner offers her a pre-owned Honda Super Cub for ten thousand yen. Believing that the motorcycle will help brighten her monotonous world, she accepts the deal. As Koguma journeys through her town on small adventures with her Super Cub, she begins to build irreplaceable friendships and eagerly advances toward her new life.”
Toshizō Nemoto handles the writing duties for the anime with Tomohisa Ishikawa and ZAQ handling the music.
The manga also features a spin-off titled ‘Super Cub Rei’ written by Sakae Saito for Kadokawa Shoten’s magazine ‘Comic Newtype.’
