Here’s a lesson in primate evolution: Back in the caveman days (the 1960s) the first Honda Monkey showed the world how much fun Homo Sapiens could have on a motorcycle. Then a couple years back; we introduced the new Monkey; and the riding world went ape again. Now it’s getting even better; because for 2022 the Honda Monkey gets a new engine (the same as our newest Grom); with a higher 10:1 compression ratio that increases power and adds to the bike’s zippy performance. Plus; an extra gear in the transmission (it’s a five-speed now) means it’s even more versatile. It’s the perfect way to get around town; or just have some fun monkeying around. Complete with ABS and available in Pearl Black and Banana Yellow; it’s more fun than; well; you know the rest.
Features may include:PERFORMANCE
For 2022; the Monkey ABS gets a new engine with higher compression; the same as in our 2022 Grom. Nobody can match Honda’s reputation for engines; and even though the Monkey may be compact; it’s a giant in terms of performance and reliability.
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!TECHNOLOGY
Sure; the Monkey is cute; but its new five-speed transmission gives you all the durability; control and efficiency of a conventional motorcycle. Plus; the extra gear this year increases top speed for highway cruising.
Forget about big; bulky taillights—the Monkey’s LED lamp is bright and clear.HANDLING
The Monkey ABS gives you an Anti-Lock-Braking System designed to help with controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions. Whether it’s on wet pavement that’s slipperier than a banana peel; or compromised road surfaces; the Monkey ABS helps you ride with confidence.
Here’s a huge improvement over the original Monkey bike: Like a top-of-the-line sportbike; the 2022 Monkey features an inverted hydraulic fork front suspension for control and road feel.DURABILITY
Tough and strong; these cast wheels and wide tires are just what the urban rider needs.STYLE
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.
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.
