The Honda Z-series, better known by everyone when its nickname Honda ‘Monkey’ is called and highly considered as an iconic classic by motorcycle aficionados. It is a low-seater bike that was manufactured from 1961 on and has since attained cult status in its category. Manufacturing of the Monkey has been discontinued for several years now, which might make it even more popular nowadays.
Initially, the Monkey was designed to act in amusement park for kids to ride on. Though, whether you love it or not – not loving maybe is impossible – it looks fun. Honda agreed with this sentiment and decided to mass-produce it and sell it all over the world. For not less than 38 years, the Monkey had been a beloved toy for a wide audience, particularly young people who were, and still are, smitten with it.
‘Monkey’ has never been the initial nickname that was given by Honda to their Z-serie, neither was it given to the bicycle itself… the Z-series’ best known nickname referred to the position of the person riding it, looking like a Monkey sitting down. Feel free to let your imagination run wild…
The Monkey is empowered by a small engine that is easy to tinker on, which probably makes it even more fun to the right person. It lets escape a pleasant hum, ensuring that you will not stay unnoticed as you cruise by. Despite its small size, it still makes a fair amount of power.
A Z-series is a coveted ‘gadget’ that brings a smile to the face of every motorcycle enthusiast. Elder models are becoming rarer and therefore highly sought after in the market, will they become a real investment?
