Picked up one a couple weeks ago in Winchester, VA from Timbrook Honda. They had two yellow ones remaining. I snagged the last red ABS they had.
I have had a Red monkey on order since mid February here in Australia, we got a shipment of yellow, blue and black Monkeys but no Red, dealership was told the shipment of Red monkeys were delayed till end of May or first week of June, I could have bought any of the other colors but I have an original Red Z50A so that’s why I will wait for a Red one, all our Monkeys here have ABS brakes, I have only seen a couple of Monkeys on the road.
I just bought a red non-ABS Monkey last week in NW Georgia. Several dealers around here had them in stock, but they wanted to add anywhere from $600 to $900 in fees on top of MSRP and tax. The dealer I went to just added a $195 doc fee.
I asked the salesman if the Monkeys had been selling well, and after hesitating he said "Well, I guess we've sold every one we've had." I think sales are slowing down a little on them now. I may pick up another Monkey in the future if used prices come down enough.
I finally got my Yellow Monkey about two weeks ago. What a cool and fun little bike! I've had a deposit down since January. The dealership I got it from is mainly a Harley dealer but sells a good bit of Hondas as well.
Decided to make this thread my introduction as well.
Lesa (my wife) and I purchased a pair of Monkeys this Memorial Day weekend. We have been looking at them every time we stop at Seminole Powersports. Saturday we walked in and there sat two Monkeys. Usually there is only one. One Yellow and one Red/ABS model. Lesa sat down on the Yellow one and I could have sworn there was a grin switch somewhere on the seat! We talked about how much fun they would be to add to our growing collection of bikes. The owner came over and we started a conversation about vintage bikes......anyway I left the conversation and went to the back to pick up parts for a project and when I turned around....no Lesa??
She was in the owner's office beating him up on the price for both Monkeys. We are now the proud owners of them and have had an absolute blast on them so far....all 70+ miles!
Here is a short video of the Monkeys just after delivery. Turn up the volume before viewing and for the younger guys? You will have to look up "The Monkeys" !
