If red is ok my local dealer has one in stock right now.
Hey everyone .I just joined up on here today . I put a deposit on the only Yellow Monkey my Honda dealership in town is getting .Should see around beginning of May which is ok since i will be traveling all of April . Been riding since the age of 7 ,so 40 years of riding . I Have had 43 motorcycles during this time . However I sold all the big bikes as riding in south Florida totally sucks as there are no roads to speak of . So i am into the small engines .Currently have a Aprilia SR50 Factory Biaggi edition ,Vespa 300GTS and a Zuma 125 .My best Buddy and i are rebuilding a Honda CT70 and have restored a few Vespas and other scoots

Where in PA are you guys? I'm in the Philly burbs - Bucksco side. I don't think there is any specific cadence to when dealers are getting Monkeys at this point and May seems like an awful long time... I had my name on a couple lists since announcement and just last week I got a call from a dealer in north Jersey area - he told me they got 16 in and wanted to see if I still wanted one. They are a powerhouse (lvl 5) dealer though so if you expand your search, include the bigger dealers and are willing to drive a little you should be able to find one.
I live in York, Pa and bought my Monkey at Lebanon Valley Honda. The salesman searched for a second yellow Monkey and found one in Pittsburgh, but the dealer wouldn't sell it to him. I found a dealer in Virginia with a yellow Monkey but not willing to pay $300 more to get it now instead of May.
This dealership said they had "a bunch in stock" when I talked to them a few weeks ago.

2019 Red Monkey
Bucknut is correct,Just for fun Honda ,up by Lake Erie...they have a picture in the cycle trader listing of their showroom with a stack of Monkeys forming a pirymid some still crated...plenty of both colors..the add was listing I think 16 of em..they are obviously a power store,but still 16? If ya didn't mind traveling a little ways....they certainly have what ya want! Waay Kool picture that many bikes all stacked up.
OK, you guys pushed me over the edge. I called around and found a dealer with a yellow Monkey a little over 2 hours away. I gave them a deposit and will pick it up next week. The few places that have them seem to want several hundred in fees on top of msrp. Luckily I found one without all the freight / setup extra fees.
