Honda Monkey For Sale
What Is It?

- Steel tubular frame and swingarm
- 220 mm disc up front with Nissin two piston caliper
- 190 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
- Single channel ABS with IMU (front only, anti stoppie)
- Upside down fork with 100 mm travel
- Dual rear shocks with 104 mm travel
- 4 speed gearbox and fuel injection

While the original Honda monkey bikes were 50 cc this new version is based heavily on the 125 cc Grom, with slightly chunkier tyres, a classic tear drop tank and high exhaust like the original.
There's also dual rear shocks, a Chrome fender, classic lights, quilted / piped seat and even an alarm. Power, economy and range are roughly the same but it weighs 5 kg more due to more metal bits.
The dash is a modern LCD affair with a fuel gauge, start-up monkey animation and the key can even make the bike flash remotely. The 5 Y-spoke 12" wheels take a chunky 120/80 at the front and 130/80 at the rear.
