Z50M Monkey - Inventing the mini bike

110 Z50M Monkey - Inventing the mini bike Geplaatst op: 2005-05-27 09:59:53   Hits: 1161
Honda's knack of combining fun and practicality in a single concept was epitomised by the Monkey bike. An amusing and eye-catching novelty when it first appeared, the small-wheeled mini-bike caught on rapidly and enjoys cult status to this day. Featuring the engine of the 50cc Cub, the Monkey could be easily stowed on a car, truck or mobile home, or even aboard a boat. Complete portability and attractive finish came with the Monkey Z50M of 1967, which featured fold-down handlebars and a retracting seat. The many versions released since have been found invaluable for short-distance mobility in yacht marinas, motor racing paddocks, campsites, factories and play areas. They have even been ridden by performing monkeys!
 
Countless riders of all ages had their first motorcycle experience on various versions of the Z50, an opportunity that is still available in today's XR50.
