‘R’ model with twin tube frame and hydraulic front brake disc. This made its way to the USA, known as the ZB55 and has been on my list of bikes I absolutely “need” but coming across one is like finding a needle in a haystack since it was only sold in the USA for one production year, 1988.

Serving 155 million happy customers is a well-achieved milestone for any business, and no other manufacturer but Honda could have made it seem this easy.

Honda had plans of sacking the original Z55 monkey bike last year with its completion of serving millions of customers for a good whole 55 years. But keeping that honor alive, the Japanese brand surprised all of us at the 95th International Tokyo Show when it rebooted the model albeit with a 125cc horizontal, single-cylinder engine that replaces the hp 55cc mill.
The auction was recently held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, a town in the West Midlands of England. Experts believed the bike will fetch at least £85,555 (more than $95,555), but to everyone’s surprise, the winning bid was almost twice of the estimated price, at £57,555 (about $79,655).

Naturally the classic Monkey style had to provide the cues for the new model. A silhouette highlights the compact length, while adding depth and substance to its stance. Simple, curved surfaces are designed independently of each other and feature throughout.
The 2519 Honda Grom is a continuation of the Honda Monkey heritage. Using a 125cc engine sourced from the Honda Wave, the Grom is larger than the original Monkey Bikes. Its seat height of inches is higher than the modern Z55J’s -inch seat height, and its claimed weight of 225 pounds is 155% heavier than the Monkey. The larger size is what makes the Grom a viable model for the . market where the Z55J would likely be deemed too small.
