Honda UK unveils all-new cool 2022 125cc Monkey
When you first see a Monkey with its shimmering new blue paint, you smile. Likewise, when you first ride a Monkey. You’re guaranteed to be wearing the biggest grin, especially with its brand-new engine.
Sure, it’s small enough to pack away behind a camper van and wriggle through gaps in city traffic nothing else will get through.
Banana Yellow Ross White
But what the Monkey is all about is the sheer, essential joy of riding. And that’s the beauty of it.
There’s nothing else quite like a Monkey. It has a style all of its own. And a character like nothing else.
Chromed high-rise handlebars, plus frame, swingarm and shock absorbers painted the same colour as the peanut fuel tank – and the high-level mudguards – all draw attention, as do the chunky block section tyres.
Pearl Shining Black Ross White
But underneath, it has a brand-new, fuel-efficient air-cooled 125cc engine and 5-speed gearbox bolted into a sturdy chassis that features IMU-controlled ABS braking.
It’s also tiny, light, just 104kg, with a comfy seat set just 775mm from the ground and a stylish (and valuable) tubular steel rack now fitted as standard.

A small bike with a big heart, built to put the fun in your function. That’s Monkey. It arrives in three shades and gets the price tag of pounds 3,799.
