2014 new scooter

Neat scooter / bike coming soon. Looks like it's about 1/2 shorter then t honda crb250 . Can't help this this little guy going to end up being down right popuar . Combines motorcycle frame with 12 inch scooter wheels and engine. I m guessing it will hit 50 mph and someone soon after it hits will mod it to go 25 MPH more then that .

e already covered the Honda MSX125 monkey bike when it debuted at the start of this year, and at the time we knew that the tiny street-terror would be a world market machine. Confirming our hopes at the time of its launch, Honda Motor Corp. has announced that it intends to bring the MSX125 to the United States, renaming it the Honda grom .
The 2013 Honda Grom will come with just under 10hp, and features a four-speed gearbox that is mated to a 125cc single-cylinder motor, which comes from the common-parts bin of the Japanese company’s popular Honda Wave 125i scooter. Fuel-injected, 225 lbs at the curb when topped-off with its 1.45 gallons of fuel, and priced at $2,999 MSRP, we think Honda hit its mark with an affordable, bulletproof, and fun grocery-getter.
Track day enthusiasts, we have found your perfect pit bike; new riders, we have the ideal machine for you to cut your teeth on, while still being “cool” in the eyes of your more experienced riding friends; and for those who are vertically challenged, your 29.7 inch inseam machine is ready. More photos after the jump, but note America will only be getting the red & black models.

What is there now, about 5 threads going on this thing? I don't see how it compares to a scooter in any way, though it would certainly come a lot closer if you put the pegs right behind the front wheel, in the traditional scooter floorboard position. No way are my 34" legs going to fit between that seat and those high rearset pegs. Bars also look too low.

Bars look like mini apes IMO.
