Honda MSX125 Grom

There's a thread on this in Battle Scooters, but it really deserves exposure here, as it's small displacement motorcycle. The MSX125 seems to be a new type of small size Honda, like an updated Monkey or Dax. Apparently, it's designed to be a "world bike." Might it come to the USA?

Crow screwed with this post 05-22-2013 at 08:37 PM Reason: The original copy of the vid went private, I found another one.

I think it would be really cool, and I would be interested, but I for one would be very surprised if it made it stateside.

It would be a really fun little back road/city bike.

It's obviously aimed at a market where there are no lawyers Can you imagine seeing this add geared toward the U.S.A.

Cool little ride

Looks like a 1965 90cc engine.

That is why it will not come to the U.S., where even the suggestion of possible danger is illegal.

I live out in the middle of nowhere and this bike would be incredibly impractical for me, but damn that looks like fun! Also I'm 6'0" so probably a little tall for it as well. However I can see that being a perfect bike for in town, shorter riders looking for something with a clutch.

Kinda reminds me of a motard'ed KD80X
