Honda showcased the Monkey 125 concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The idea was to take the classic-looking lines of the original Honda Monkey and give them a fresh, modern twist. For those who are not familiar with Honda's Monkey range of bikes, it is a range of mini bikes, which is said to take the name monkey, because a person riding the same looks like a monkey perched on a mini-bike.
The Monkey 125 gets a single- cylinder 125 cc engine. The modern bits include LED lights, digital instrumentation along with USD forks upfront and twin shock absorbers at the rear. The concept was shod with knobbly tyres. The mudguards at the front and rear are raised, which hint at off-roading ability. The bike gets disc brakes at both ends and the exhaust is placed along the rears sub-frame and has a heat shield as well. Whether it goes into production or not, remains to be seen.
