    Like the idea of one of these to scoot around on...down to the shops...off to work...around to see the hairdresser...that sort of stuff...will keep the km's low on my Rocket...They are a Honda Monkey 125cc..just under 7k new.

    Tal, this is a revamped bike originally sold back in the 70's and 80's.. It was then generally powered by a 70cc motor and called the ST70. See link from Wikipedia with all the bumf you'll ever need. Friend from school had one of these, Best bit was he lived on a farm and we used to spend hours...no, days tearing around all over the countryside on this thing. When you're 13/14 it was the canine genitalia

    Let's face it - the most proven basic run around is the Cub

    And it's back

    3600USD.

    And YES! - @Grumpy Ole Codger - it comes in Blue!.

    That "Cub" - as an '81 C-70 Passport was my first bike -- and I'd still have it had it not been stolen from my front porch.
