2007 Honda Z50 40th Anniversay Monkey
The world’s best known and most easily recognised minibike is the Honda Z50 Monkey. Honda's official model designations are typically Z50A, Z50J, Z50M, Z50R, and ZB50, but to the world they are simply the "Monkey" or "Gorilla", and both named after comments relating to how people looked when seen riding Honda’s first model in 1967, the Z50M.
Legend has it the Monkey as a model occurred almost by accident, after Honda was commissioned by the Tama Tech amusement Park to create a small production of children’s minibikes. The result was a very basic box-like frame fitted with proportionally large chunky tyres, a 50cc engine and no front or rear suspension. Following the amazing popularity of the Tama Tech bikes, Honda realised a possible new production model, and as they say, rest is history.
To celebrate the model’s popularity, every decade Honda produced an anniversary model, and in 2007 they produced a stunning black & tartan theme that harked back to the original model. This was also the first model to be reintroduced into Australia by Honda Australia and as the years have passed the 40th Anniversary has grown in popularity and demand, surpassing the value of many newer models.
This 40th Anniversary is located in Sydney and has only 44k’s on the clock. As the pics present, it is showroom original and been part of an indoor Z50 collection. It retains the original owner’s handbook & spare keys.
