Honda is bringing back its legendary Z50 Monkey's classic style to the MSX125. The Z50 was very popular when it was launched back in the 1960s. The firm is trying to capitalise its popularity by mixing the current model's usability.
Honda has not confirmed about the production yet, but they have patented the new design based on the old Z50 frame. The engine and frame remain very similar, with a modified subframe and mounts to connect two shocks instead of the MSX's monoshock.
The MSX is known in the market as the Grom - a cheap, fun, light small motorcycle. The sales of MSX was quite remarkable as Honda sold around 1000 units in 2015 in the UK and it is very popular in other European markets.
Honda is hoping to make a classic machine with a modern approach which can be sold in emissions-restricted markets like Europe and America.
