Before the 125 Monkey was born, Honda announced that they were killing off the legendary Z50 model due to ever-tightening emissions regulations. They ended the run with 1,800 examples of a special 50th Anniversary model and they were only officially sold in Japan. Everyone else was forced to wait for bikes to be exported, knowing they’d have to pay a premium for the privilege.
The 50th Anniversary calls back to the original bike very well, with a similar white paint scheme paired with a red frame, headlight holder, fork tubes, and more. Don’t forget the plaid seat, either! The new bikes got special badging to commemorate the anniversary and a fancy key. MSRP was approximately $3,200 but they immediately got flipped for more.
This example (VIN: Ab27-2401615) was imported from Japan and has never been dealer prepped. It includes all the paperwork from the sale and it’s basically brand new.
