So, the company said it believes the bikes will appeal to new riders and romantic fans of these past models, which have played an essential role in Honda’s history.

Honda is a famous Japanese public multinational company that manufactures automobiles, motorcycles, and battery-powered appliances. Honda is the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959. Developed in the early 1960s for a Honda-owned Japanese amusement park called Tama Tech, the Honda Monkey is a fun bike with a realistic character that has remained steadfast since its inception.

What’s New For 2024 Model Year

Famous riding gear maker Acerbis is celebrating its 50th anniversary by creating the ultimate mile-muncher Honda Monkey. This latest version of the Monkey returned in 2018 as a MY19 offering under the “Monkey 125” moniker. The smaller 125 cc engine is older but much more powerful, instead of the 49 cc mill, offering a simultaneous improvement in performance.

A faux tuck-and-roll saddle has replaced the old sleek bench seat, but much of the layout remains based on its stablemate, the Grom. This design has continued through present-day production. For 2024, the Monkey offers a “BNG” (Bold New Graphics) update with the Pearl Black colorway.

2024 Honda Monkey Performance And Capability

According to one report, a factory-claimed top speed of 56.5 mph is fast enough for highway work. However, it will undoubtedly test your nerves as you may not get any roll-on response at that speed. The 2024 Honda Monkey ABS produces 9.3 horsepower and 8.1 pound-feet of torque. The head pipe, mainframe, and engine hinge plate offer optimal strength for stable handling.

The Monkey also features a fuel-injected air-cooled 124cc single mated to a 5-speed transmission. New Monkey has a 1.5-gallon tank; the 2023 model reports 169 mpg. It has an inverted fork with 4.3 inches of travel and twin rear shocks with 4 inches of travel. It has an excellent ABS when it needs to stop the monkey run. Braking comes from a 220mm disc at the front and a 190mm disc at the rear. New 2024 Pearl Black Honda Monkey ABS from Team Motorsports in De Pere, Wisconsin.

Honda Monkey Design And Styling

The seat itself is a nice little easter egg. A chrome front fender rides high under triple clamps to allow the front wheel to move and prevent the fender from adding to the sprung weight of the front axle. Up front, a round headlight and instrument gauges maintain the retro-tastic feel of the rest of the bike while offering modern metrics and LED brightness. LED technology is also featured in the taillights for adequate, two-way visibility.

About Monkey Mini Moto Chassis And Handling

It has classic Monkey styling. A steel backbone frame provides the basic structure of the Honda Monkey, with a stressed member with the engine to finish the job and meet its ultimate rigidity. The swingarm is a full-yoke design with a rectangular cross-section that forces the bones to complete.

A 31mm inverted front fork floats the front end to a reasonably generous 4.3 inches of travel, while the dual coil-over rear shocks offer even four inches of travel, breaking even with standard full-size road bikes today.

The rake and trail measure 25 degrees and 3.2 inches, giving the Monkey its nimble handling characteristics. The seat height is perfect for all but the very low inseam from a shallow 30.5-inch deck, though taller riders will feel the urge to monkey among monkeys.
