Features

Durability

  • 12-INCH WHEELS: Tough and strong, these cast wheels and wide tires are just what the urban rider needs.

Handling

  • INVERTED FORK SUSPENSION: Here’s a huge improvement over the original Monkey bike: Like a top-of-the-line sportbike, the 2021 Monkey features an inverted hydraulic fork front suspension for control and road feel.
  • 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.

Performance

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • FUEL CAPACITY: Got a small fuel budget? The Monkey will make it look gigantic. With a 1.5-gallon tank and incredible fuel efficiency, every fill-up will take you farther than you ever thought possible.
  • HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES: The Monkey features 220mm front and 190mm rear single disc brakes for excellent stopping power.

Style

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • LOW SEAT HEIGHT: Whether you’re flat-footing it into a parking space or just stopped for a long light, the Monkey’s super-low 30.6-inch seat makes it easy to maneuver and 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, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, and indicator for low/high beam. It even greets you when you first start the bike!
  • 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.

Technology

  • 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 TAILLIGHT: Forget about big, bulky taillights—the Monkey’s LED lamp is bright and clear.
