Known as the MSX125 in Asian markets, the Grom is based around Honda’s existing, four-stroke, two-valve, 125cc motor. Rather than the Continuously Variable Transmission (which operates like an automatic) of scooters, the Grom is fitted with a four-speed manual transmission and traditional clutch.
That motor is housed in a steel backbone frame supported at the front by 31mm, nonadjustable, USD forks with a big bike-like 3.9 inches of travel and, at the rear, by a monoshock with an, again impressive, 4.1 inches of travel.
12-inch wheels with wide tires and disc brakes front and rear round out an impressively high spec mechanical package that’s then wrapped in swoopy, stylish plastic. That big seat can carry two people and there’s passenger foot rests.
The Grom’s motor delivers a respectable 9bhp, which is good for an indicated 56mph top speed and, wait for it…130mpg fuel economy. The dinky little bike weighs just 225lbs with its 1.45 gallon tank filled.
