Features

Paying homeage

The 2018 Monkey hasn’t forgotten it’s roots. Styling, paint and chromed parts draw heavily on the original. Naturally the classic Monkey style had to provide the cues for the new model. A trapezoid silhouette highlights the compact length, while adding depth and substance to its stance. Simple, curved surfaces are designed independently of each other and feature throughout.

LCD

A digital full-LCD circular meter features speedometer (which winks playfully when the ignition is turned on).

LED

All lighting on the 2018 Monkey is LED. Keeping it nice and bright at night.

True to origins

True to its origins, the Monkey’s horizontal SOHC 125cc single-cylinder engine is simple, robust and tuned to deliver useful about-town performance.

Fuel Economy

The gearbox is 4-speed and the engine returns fuel economy of 67km/l (WMTC mode).

Perfect Balance

The Monkey’s steel backbone frame has been tuned for a suitable balance between rigidity and supple feel – perfect for the wide variety of conditions the machine is sure to be ridden in. Oval in cross-section, the swingarm echoes the circular design theme that runs through the bike.

USD Forks

USD front forks wear a premium Alumite finish and are matched by dual rear shocks with 104mm of axle travel. Maximum ground clearance is 160mm.
