Reasons why Honda Monkey is liked
The Honda Monkey has a strong appeal to people due to its combination of classic iconic design and high-end modern features.
Here are some reasons why people love the Honda Monkey:
The Honda Monkey has a design inspired by the famous Honda minibikes of the 60s, which give it a strong nostalgic touch.
Small size and light weight
The Honda Monkey’s small size and low weight make it easy to drive and maneuver on busy or narrow roads.
This also makes it a great choice for beginners and more experienced riders looking for an easy-to-use bike.
Despite having a classic design, the Honda Monkey is equipped with modern technology such as the PGM-FI fuel injection system and a sophisticated digital instrument cluster.

Honda Monkey Astro Boy design inspiration
Tezuka was a huge fan of Disney and many of the characters he originally designed were Disney-style. Well, one of them is Astro.
The design is very simple and similar to Disney works. For example, the two crests on his head always move in opposite directions and don’t change, like the ears of the famous Disney character, Mickey Mouse.
One of Astro’s most notable features are his eyes, especially in the anime series. Her eyes are designed to be fully sensitive to light and look very lively.
This has become a common design in later anime and manga characters. With this cool eye design, Astro’s facial expressions can look more real even if the animation is a bit off.
Other than that, Astro lashes are also very simple. Drawn as just 5 short lines coming out of his lids.
But there are also those whose eyelashes alternate between simple and more realistic.
In the 2009 CGI animated film, Astro Boy’s appearance underwent a major change as this was his first CGI appearance.
The eyes are smaller and the eyelashes thinner, the hair consists of fine, silky fibers. The boots are divided into segments with a metallic finish and the belt has a visible belt.
Instead of her shiny black shorts, she wore black panties that looked like they were made from some kind of fabric.
Unlike his previous appearances, this time Astro is depicted as a teenager and fully clothed throughout, wearing black pants, a white T-shirt, and a blue sweater with a red collar.
In the redesign, Astro Boy displays similar proportions to his 2003 incarnation, albeit with a slightly darker skin tone and green eyes.
He wore a simple green (later red) shirt with black pants on which the red boots stood out.
On both the shirt and the shoes a series of lines are shown which form the collar, the sleeves and form the box inside the shoe.
So, this is the Astro Boy design that is partly used for this limited edition Honda Monkey. Will it enter Indonesia?
Yes it is possible, if there are generic motorcycle importers, buy it too.
