Production of the iconic Honda "monkey bike" or Z50 which is the road-worthy version of what was originally a children's ride at a Tokyo amusement park in the early 60's will be discontinued in 2017.

If you have been to Japan in recent years you may have noticed a decrease in motorbikes zipping around due to high registration prices and tight emission regulations. This has seen an abundance of push bikes taking the streets all over the country. Unfortunately this new trend has signaled to Honda that the demand for monkey bikes is no longer there.

Honda may be ending the production for Z50's however rest assured there are plenty of keen riders in Oz that will continue to keep the legacy alive and RCraft Australia is here to help them out!
