Interested buyers can make their reservations in Dec 1, 2023 to Mar 25, 2024 booking window. The delivery will commence from July 26, 2024.
As for the pricing, it costs ¥550,000 that converts to around 3,739 USD based on the current conversion rates. For reference, the Honda Monkey in Japan is currently for sale at ¥440,000 or 2,991 USD.
