Honda Monkey

Derived from the Honda Z series (produced from 1961 to 1999) and the Ape model that followed, the Monkey brings freedom and fun to city riding.

Fun is the operative word because the Honda Monkey is guaranteed to brighten up your day while you weave in out of traffic with ease. It’s sure to put a smile on the face of road users and pedestrians alike too. Even better, this compact motorcycle is ideal urban transport – and it’s an absolute joy to ride.

There’s an appealingly nostalgic element to the Monkey since it’s very much made in the image of the original. Nevertheless, Honda has worked hard to make it a bike for today, providing it with its most powerful – and wonderfully frugal – engine to date, for example.

Whether you require a motorcycle that’s ideal for shopping trips, city commutes or camping excursions, the Honda Monkey is certain to provide you with a happy, hassle-free riding experience.

Retro-modern Monkey The latest Monkey iteration looks like the one we know and love – and indeed, it very much is. However, the bike’s retro style is supported by up-to-the minute tech. For instance, a full-LCD circular instrument cluster isn’t something the original model could be said to have possessed.
All-LED illumination The latest Monkey model features full-LED lights, the most prominent of which is an enlarged circular headlamp, a noteworthy design feature that provides exceptional illumination.
Complementary chrome Whichever colour scheme you select, you can be certain it’ll perfectly complement the bike’s highly polished chrome steel fixtures and fittings, which include high-level mudguards and handlebars.
Mighty Monkey Though small and light, the Monkey is nevertheless very tough, featuring a high-strength steel backbone frame that delivers core stability. Furthermore, the bike’s oval-section swingarm, front forks, dual rear shocks, robust 12-inch tyres, and super-durable seat are all designed to last the course.
Clever braking system A single-channelled Anti-lock Braking System is governed by an Inertial Measurement Unit, ensuring that sudden braking doesn’t cause the bike’s rear section to lift. Stopping power is provided by a 220-millimetre front disc and a 190-millimetre rear disc.
Updated engine and gearbox The Monkey’s new air-cooled 125cc engine is calibrated to deliver fun and flexible city jaunts. As we’ve already mentioned, it’s very economical – and Euro 5-compliant too. Meanwhile, a five-speed gearbox (previous models only had four) makes the bike just as suitable for longer journeys.
