START MONKEYING AROUND
Everyone loves the Honda Monkey. The original Monkey was a 1960’s hit; add a few decades of evolution, throw in a couple of bananas, and you get the 2020 Honda Monkey. As much fun as the original, but way, way better. It’s a 125cc bundle of smiles, but it’s also a practical way to get around town, or to scoot around once you’ve parked a bigger rig. This year we’ve added a new, classic Monkey color (blue). Want to move up even further on the evolutionary ladder? Then check out our ABS version. Who says a Monkey can’t learn new tricks?
125cc FUEL-INJECTED ENGINE
Nobody can match Honda’s reputation for engines, and even though the Monkey may be compact, this single-overhead-cam design is a giant in terms of performance and reliability.
Who says being on a budget can’t be fun? With its 1.5-gallon fuel tank and awesome fuel efficiency, the Monkey may be small, but it lets you ride far on every fill-up.
EASY TO PARK
Because of the Monkey’s miniature stature, it’s easy to park in the city, and to store when you’re not riding. There’s always room for a Monkey!
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
The Monkey features 220mm front and 190mm rear single disc brakes for excellent stopping power.
Sure, the Monkey is cute, but its four-speed transmission gives you all the durability, control and efficiency of a conventional motorcycle.
Forget about big, bulky taillights—the Monkey’s LED lamp is bright and clear.
Our Anti-Lock Braking System (on the Monkey ABS model) can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence.
TWIN REAR SHOCKS
The Monkey 125 has twin rear shocks. Combined with the fat tires and cushy seat, they smooth out the roughest pavement in the urban jungle.
INVERTED FORK SUSPENSION
Here’s a huge improvement over the original Monkey bike: Like a top-of-the-line sportbike, the 2020 Monkey features an inverted hydraulic fork front suspension for control and road feel.
Tough and strong, these cast wheels and wide tires are just what the urban rider needs.
The Monkey’s high-aspect-ratio tires do more than just look cool. They’re extraordinarily practical too, giving you tons of grip and absorbing bumps or rough road surfaces.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
At just 30.6 inches, the Monkey’s super-low seat makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights.
ROUND CHROMED LED HEADLIGHT
The Monkey’s round headlight looks retro, but its performance is totally up to date and provides superior illumination and visibility.
Sure, the Monkey may be small, but we sized it to fit adult riders. Case in point—check out the high-rise handlebar, so you can sit up and check out the world as you ride.
MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS
Retro meets modern in the Monkey’s instrument cluster. The round housing is totally 1960s, while the display features speedometer, odometer, tachometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, and indicator for low/high beam. It even greets you when you first start the bike!
