Honda Monkey gets 50th anniversary model

Honda will release a 50th anniversary model of their 50cc leisure model motorcycle, the Monkey.

The 50th anniversary model of the Monkey has white sides to the fuel tank, side covers, and front fender with red for the frame, the front fork, swing arm, headlight case, and top of the fuel tank, emulating the color scheme of the first generation Monkey Z50M model, released in 1967.

The seat also takes cues from the old model, with its sleek checkered pattern. Also, celebrating the 50th anniversary, wing badges adorn the sides of the fuel tank and a commemorative sticker is placed on top of the tank. In addition, the side cover also has commemorative emblems, a commemorative logo at the back of the seat, and a specialized key, making for a particularly unique limited edition of the bike.

The bike is priced at ¥352,080 ($3,134 USD).
