Honda Monkey has been around since 1961 but didn’t truly gain in popularity until the 70’s. This unique moped has seen tremendous development over the years and remains popular today. The Honda Monkey was originally developed to serve as a ride in an amusement park in Tokyo and soon after became popular outside of the park. A new ‘roadworthy’ version was developed, which is still popular today.
From theme park to moped of choice
The Honda Monkey derives its name from the way people position themselves. When people sit down on the moped it kind of makes them look like a monkey. Its compact design makes them lithe and agile. This is one of the reasons it remains among Honda’s most popular four stroke mopeds.
