    Classic marketing to set the price point, they determine how many people are interested in it (tell us if you're interested), if it's above the amount Honda Japan will supply to Australia they just price it at a premium. Mercedes did the same thing with the new model C63, old model was $140,000 new model is $200,000+ simply due to the demand outstripping supply.

    I think you can almost bet your house on it, same frame and motor as the grom....

          Yeah Dex - the blue is cool. I was told that we are only getting them in red or yellow.

          Who knows but?

          I'd really like one in black:

              Using that link (thanks Alex) and comparing to Honda Aus site http://hondagrom.com.au/specifications/ they look to be pretty much exactly the same size.

                Think I prefer the grom, the missus and I a planning on one each after the winter
                Don’t think much of the colors but!
                We hired one cairns a while back, 2 up 96klms flat out with 160kgs
                Handle just loke a normal sized bike. Brakes were excellent. Suspension with that weight on it, couldn’t fault it.
                Save the monkeys

                  They are the same size. It's basically a Grom with different body work and twin shock. Main frame, engine, forks and wheels are all from the Grom.

                      I guess the new Monkey will be the first that doesn't fit inside the 'moped' class for those sates that allow you to ride a moped on a car licence.
                      You're only young once but you can ride a monkey forever.

                      Red Z50AK2 U 1974 - Blue Z50AK2 U 1973 - Yellow Z50AK2 U 1974 - 2 x Gold ST70 K0 DAX
                      Red ST50 DAX registration lapsed - XL250S 1978 - 3 x SUZUKI TC185 1974/1975 - TS185 1990

                        Won't lie I hate the grom but I think I could handle a black or blue one of these.
