2019 Honda Monkey


Let’s take a look back at our family tree: One of the best-loved Hondas of all time, the original Monkey was a 1960’s hit, and it’s easy to see why. That little two-wheeled rascal was built to generate ear-to-ear smiles. Now, fast-forward to the present. We’re introducing an all-new Honda Monkey. Peel the banana and you’ll see while it may look retro, the new Monkey is built for the way we ride today. Available in two color choices (Pearl Nebula Red and Banana Yellow), the Honda Monkey is a 125 cc bundle of practical urban transport, a great back-of-the-motorhome bike, and just plain too much fun to pass by. So climb down out of your tree, head over to your Honda Dealer, and check out the two-wheeler the whole jungle is howling about.


  • 12 INCH WHEELS: Tough and strong, these cast wheels and wide tires are just what the urban rider needs.
  • TWIN REAR SHOCKS: The new 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, this Monkey features an inverted hydraulic fork front suspension for control and road feel.


  • 125 CC 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.
  • HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES: The Monkey features 220 mm front and 190 mm rear single disc brakes for excellent stopping power.
  • FUEL CAPACITY: 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!


  • HIGH-RISE HANDLEBAR: 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.
  • 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.
  • MULT-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!
  • CHUNKY TIRES: 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.


  • FOUR SPEED TRANSMISSION: Sure, the Monkey is cute, but its four-speed transmission gives you all the durability, control and efficiency of a conventional motorcycle.
  • LED TAILLIGHTS: Forget about big, bulky taillights—the Monkey’s LED lamp is bright and clear—plus, it’s round like a coconut!
