The Honda Grom created an odd but amusing segment of motorcycling when it was introduced in 2014. Big enough to ride on real roads, small enough to thrash like a borrowed bicycle. Apparently it still has enough fans to stick around, and is getting a few tweaks for the 2017 model year.
Sorry Honda, but your Grom will live no longer as the only option for miniature sized racing, stunting, and all around mini-motorcycle awesomeness. Kawasaki is bringing its Z125 Pro stateside.
There is a reason why sportbikes are long, keep a lot of weight over the front, and have front ends that don’t turn a ton and have beefy steering stabilizers: it’s so you don’t kill yourself. But, if you’re going to kill yourself, doing it on a Ducati Panigale-powered Grom is a great way to do it.
I was well into my third hour on the bike before I began calculating just what a disaster I’d gotten myself into.
The guys over at Kawasaki got so sick of having to wait until the wee hours of the morning to ride their Groms that they went out and made their own. Meet the Kawasaki Z125.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever dreamt about ripping around your childhood school on a motorcycle? Right. All of you. Thought so. Now imagine doing it on a Honda Grom. Wait, stop looking for Groms online - watch this first.
The Honda Grom is back for 2015, still packing a 125cc thumper, hydraulic discs, inverted fork, and 225-pound curb weight. But now… in yellow! And white!
The NSX and S2000 are great and all, but my all-time favorite Honda may just be the Honda City Turbo, because that was a turbocharged hot hatch with a freaking scooter in the back. Now Honda has revived the idea with a 2015 Fit and a the wonderful Grom mini-cycle, and I want them to shut up and take my money.
We like the Honda Grom, but we'll never love it like Nathan Rogers. In some kind of monkey bike-induced lunacy, he left Portland earlier this summer and headed north. Two weeks later, he rolled into Alaska. It'll take twice as long for his ass and knees to recover, so he had time for some questions. One of his…
Have we mentioned how much we love the Honda Grom? It's small, it's simple, it's got an engine that has more in common with a weedwhacker than a sport bike, and it's cuter than an eight-week-old puppy with an overbite. And at $3,199, it's stupid cheap. Which inspires this kind of hoonage.
The highly anticipated Honda Grom has finally hit the shores of the Unites States of America! We saw the first Grom being offered by a Dealership in Shreveport on their Facebook last night, and then today we got news that one of the members of HondaGrom.net was about to pick up his Honda Grom!
