American Honda yesterday announced the return of two popular miniMOTO models for the 2024 model year. From new riders to nostalgic fans of past models that played important roles in Honda’s history, the iconic Monkey and Super Cub continue to appeal to a wide variety of customers. Honda is a pioneer and leader in this category, and the brand’s collection of approachable and fun pint-sized two-wheelers has never been stronger.


With authentic retro styling and a smile-inducing character, Honda’s Monkey is back with a new Pearl Black colour for 2024 (plus the returning Pearl Nebula Red). Also returning for the new model year, the best-selling Super Cub continues to offer convenient and efficient performance for around-town riding. Both models draw on Honda’s rich two-wheel heritage while benefiting from the modern advancements that allow for an enjoyable, safe and comfortable ride.


Originally introduced in the early 1960s for a Honda-owned Japanese amusement park called Tama Tech, Honda’s Monkey remains true to its roots, with a fun-yet-practical character. Its authentic retro styling is contrasted by state-of-the-art performance, thanks to features like programmed fuel injection, ABS brakes, plush suspension and a capable 124cc engine. Designed to maximize smiles per gallon, the Monkey’s small stature, lightweight and practical performance combine to deliver an approachable, enjoyable riding experience for a wide variety of riders.
