Another stunner in black, the doubters just have to use some imagination before dismissing it!

This thing is gonna take over. What the Madass shoulda been. Price is doable, tech specs up to date, infinitely moddable into any configuration you want; suspect that a lotta frustrated Passport/SuperCub seekers will scratch the itch, too. Right bike for the right time.

Sumbody gimme the loana 3k, eh? Got an empty spot beside my PCX

Awesome!!!!!

Finally, the USA gets a cool bike that we normally only get to hear "no word yet on USA availability". It has been a loooong time since I have been this excited about a new model. The Grom looks like affordable fun that will pay for itself in smiles and the fuel savings. Why wouldn't every person that lives in the city or on fun country back roads want one of these bikes? I cannot wait to see one and test drive it. If the Grom is not completely gutless I will own one. I'm already thinking Michelin Reggae type tires, a skid plate, and an FMF pipe... you meet the nicest people on a Honda!

Looks like KYMCO might have something for the 125cc urban market also.

From Thailand, image just found on the web. For those that have to have a fairing. Dunno anything more than just finding the pic.




Another faired version...more old school

It does look like a pit bike to me. Something an adult could ride around in a parking lot, but not actually on the street. I'm also 220ish, 6', with a 32" inseam, and I simply cannot see myself fitting on that. Yet I actually fit pretty good on an old school pedal moped, or a 50cc scooter. The faired version is pure pocket bike. My nephew had a pocket bike when he was about 12, and I was indeed able to ride it a couple of blocks. His dad took a picture of me riding it, and you couldn't even see the bike. Why didn't Honda bring back something useful, like the Trail 110 that they still sell in Japan. For me that would be a must have.

I can't believe they made that video for the U.S, where safety is everything, and even thinking about having fun is illegal. I'll bet the cops are already drooling over this one. Tickets, tickets, and more tickets. BTW, everybody might want to reconsider getting one. Since it can do stoppies, it obviously does not have ABS, so it can't possibly be safe on the street.

A pretty good review from Thailand, in English

TL;DR

He loves everything about it except the seat and passenger accommodations. Says it even does really well off road!
