In Australia – 1982 Honda BiMonkey

In Custom, Japan, Small Displacement, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Honda’s Monkey bike (known the world over but sometimes with a different name) is one of the most notable motorcycles ever built. Between ’87 and ’88, Honda built a RT variant which was only available in Japan. According to the seller, approximately 40 of those RT bikes were converted to these adorable little replicas of the Bimota DB1 called the BiMonkey.

Though the seller says 40 units were built, but I can’t find evidence of another one or who built them. In this thread (started because the seller was trying to sell the BiMonkey and a DB1 as a set last year), someone says that this is the 2nd one they’ve seen (here’s a possible photo of it), for what it’s worth. They also say that the bike has a 80cc engine, though the original Monkey came with a 50cc unit.
