Yep, one way they can sell it so cheap, no crash testing! It will be my winter vehicle if they actually start making it, even if I need a 3 wheel endorsement and wear a helmet! 84mpg!?!

I like it too for some reason. Wish they made one with a 250 motor, that may push me over the edge.

That;s my thoughts on the soon to be released Honda Grom. Looks like it could be a cool little run about/learner/short ass bike... if it was a 250...

I have similar thoughts about the Yamaha TW200.

Very cool bike. I just wish they made one with a motor that could sustain speeds that are safe for the American interstate system without destroying it.

And speaking of....
