New honda monkeybike coming soon! Honda Grom
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7Eb3hSPznI
details just released of the new msx 125 fuel injected single cylinder electric start bike, coming to europe in the spring, i think its the next gen monkey for the youth of today, already lots of tuning companys involved in making bling etc and theres a few custom ones on the thai sites already, honda is marketing this as a "global" bike i.e something to sell in all markets, just hope you fellas in the US can get it too!
Heres a custom version you might like!

Please pardon the question from a senior citizen , why is it called a monkey bike ??:huh

Dezzie 01-09-2013 11:48 AM

its a half sized bike they brought out in japan in the late 60s for leisure n fun, this has evolved into bikes of all shapes n sizes from different manufacturers over the years, but honda the originator havent released any new ones in the last 20 odd years until now, as the chinese have made so many copies of everybody elses bikes, honda have got mad and came out of the cupboard to start a new generation!

That looks quite a bit bigger than the monkey bikes I remember from the '60s. And somehow I just have a hard time imagining a 125cc bike doing all the stuff in that video. One thing is for sure, their advertising is not geared toward safety crazed America.

MSX-125 + thousands of dollars in Takegawa parts=one lost driver's license. It would be worth every penny.

Will buy. Make mine yellow. Maybe white. Heck, I don't care.

Awesome!!!

Reminds me of my old hooligan antics of the late teens to mid twenties. Not that I am looking to relive that era.

I just don't see that kind of performance coming out of a 125cc engine. We'll see though.

looks like great fun....espicially for those gymkana parking lot events!

you can stunt any bike if ya good enough fellas, the kawasaki ksr has the same capacity and theres clubs all over thailand that do stunt shows with them for example -
