Make motorcycling pure fun again. It’s what the Monkey’s made for.
REMEMBER THE LAST TIME
When you first see a Monkey, you’ll smile. When you first ride a Monkey, you’re guaranteed to be wearing the biggest grin inside your helmet. Sure, it’s small enough to pack away behind a camper van, and wriggle through gaps in traffic nothing else will get through. But, really what the Monkey’s all about is the sheer, basic joy of riding. And we think there’s nothing wrong with that.
THIS IS MONKEY
The Monkey has style all if its own. And character like nothing else. Chromed high-rise handlebars, plus frame, swingarm and shock absorbers painted the same colour as the peanut fuel tank–and the high-level mudguards–all draw attention. As do the chunky block-section tyres. But underneath it’s built strong, with a dependable, economical air-cooled 125cc engine bolted into a sturdy chassis that features IMU-controlled ABS braking. It’s also small and light, just 107kg, with a comfy seat set 775mm from the ground. So much more than a toy. No less of a motorcycle. It’s a Monkey.
WE MAKE THE MACHINE
You make the magic. The Monkey’s a feeling. Of living carefree in the moment and making memories for now, and the future. Its history with Honda might go all the way back to 1961–when the world was a different place–but what it represents, what it is and what it means, is as important now as it ever was. The Monkey is two-wheeled freedom. And the time is right.
The original Monkey became a 70s icon. It was the two-wheeled machine to be seen on, and nothing's changed. Our new Monkey's style, with its chromed steel high-level front and rear mudguards plus the evocatively stamped exhaust shield and high rise handlebars pay homeage to the original. And somehow looks even funkier.
That's the Monkey in a nutshell. And its reliable engine's the same; the air cooled, fuel injected horizontal 125cc SOHC power unit is turned to deliver enjoyable around town performance and makes 6.9kW at 7,000rpm and 11Nm at 5,250rom. The four speed gearbox is managed by clutch, just like a big bike.
Full LED Lighting
Just to make sure the Monkey stands out from the crowd even more we've given it full LED lighting - even the indicators. And the key features an 'answer back' system that makes the lights flash at the push of a button, so you'll never lose your Monkey in a car park.
