Helllllo everyone!!! I'm finally joining the club! Last night I signed all the paper work and today I pick it up!!! I snagged a pearl nebula red non abs. I grew up on a honda Z50r so I've been wanting the new Monkey since it was announced. I'll update and get better pictures once I pick it up!! I'm based in socal any other riders near riverside????
Congrats! Is it a 19 or 20?
We got it home! Took it for a spin around the neighborhood before we lost light. I'm amazed with with it already. Its such a fun bike.
Also it's a 2019.
enjoy riding it!
why did you chose the monkey ? I haven't made up my mind on which one to get, lie them both...
Congrats!! Welcome to the Monkey world!!
2014 Black Grom
2019 Red Monkey
The monkey felt the best, it had a more relaxed riding position and I'm not into stunting at all or the sport bike aesthetic. I think the biggest thing was I wanted the monkey the most. Now if the Spade 150 was a bit cheaper that would have been a choice I could have lived with. Like I mentioned before I haven't been riding a motorcycle for 10 years there was a chance I wouldnt enjoy it.
I looked at the others only because of their lower cost 3380OTD for a Z125 at my dealership.
The second the monkey was announced I knew I'd end up with one I grew up riding a Z50r from the 70s. It was my first bike and my first real love. Sitting on the monkey I feel the same freedom I felt when I was 9 and sat on the Z50r. + the monkey is classy as hell to me.
I've got 2 miles on the bike and the 1 mile I put on it was the best mile of my life lol I am in love 100%
