HONDA commemorates the 40th anniversary of the“monkey” with the limited edition 40th anniversary model. In 2009, Honda launches a whole new monkey complete with fuel injection, catalytic converter, and many other minor changes.
This 50cc monkey has a update to the tank design, which some people say resembles their first generation. No doubt the new design was also made specifically to accommodate fuel delivery to the FI system. I’m sure most of the new features will through tuners through a loop as it will take some time for aftermarket companies to catch up. However for the collectors of the world an all new Monkey must be pretty exciting.
This is retailing for US$700-US$800.00 online.
