2019 Honda Monkey mini-bike in Malaysia, RM13,999

After being retired from the catalogue last year, the Honda mini-bike is back, in the 2019 Honda Monkey, retailing at RM13,999. Shown to the Malaysian public at the Art of Speed 2018 show last July, the Monkey uses the Honda MSX 125 SF (approximately RM10,499), or Honda Grom, as its basis.

Taking the 125 cc, air-cooled single-cylinder power plant from the MSX 125, the Monkey’s engine produces 9.6 hp at 7,000 rpm and 10.5 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheel via a four-speed gearbox and chain final drive.

“Honda Monkey is a unique mini bike admired by its fan worldwide including Malaysia,” said Boon Siew Honda Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Keiichi Yasuda. “After months of its showcasing at many public exhibitions, we have received positive feedback on it hence our decision to offer this iconic model for the Malaysian market.”

Fuelling for the Monkey is with Honda’s PGM-FI and fuel is carried in a 5.6-litre tank that closely follows the retro style of the original Monkey. Rolling on 12-inch tyres, the Monkey is stopped by a 220 mm diameter brake disc in front, and a 190 mm unit in the rear with seat height at a rider-friendly 775 mm.

Full LED lighting is found throughout the 2019 Honda Monkey, and a digital LCD instrument display shows everything the rider needs to know. There are three colour options available in Malaysia for the Honda Monkey – Pearl Nebula Red, Pearl Glittering Blue, and the aptly named Banana Yellow.

        This bike looks good. I am sure it will sell in Malaysia. However, let us sort our our rempit problem first and the bike lane on federal highway first before we launch new bikes.

        It has taken years for an incompetent previous Government to fix our bike lanes on the federal highway. No point launching new bikes all the time when no proper place for riders to ride

      It comes with abs and a review feedback says something about smart braking whereby the stopping strength is auto adjust to reduce the front from pitch down low like grom

      They cant afford it lah. And if they want to rempit, this is not the bike for it. For rempit, there are way more powerful bikes than this for rempiting…

      Its a fun go-to bike for commuting with a sense of retro flair. Max speed around 100kmh reachable. Lots of other cheaper cupchais are more capable of rempit rides.

    this bike bring nostalgic to me. everything is perfect except for the price. Boon Siew = famous for over price. and for those say about rempit = please use your brain, rempit don’t use small bike as max top speed is only 90km/h. and for those say monkey ride this bike/ugly, is better keep quiet as you only portrait the monkey brain in your head. this is grom category bike which is for fun riding.

    Keep an eye on the cam chain tensioner and everything which is involved with that system, rubbers, wheels, push rod.
    I’ve seen it wearing out after 1500km, and it’s notorious for being very very weak.
    So if you buy this bike, keep and eye on it to avoid damage…
