Meet the new 2014 Honda Grom 125 – a lightweight machine that promise to reward you with a fun riding experience. Judging by its specs the new Grom 125 is technically a pumped up scooter, as its powered by a fuel-injected 125cc, single cylinder, air cooled, four stroke engine which sends its power to a set of fat tyres wrapped around 12 inch rims.
As far as style is concerned, we’ll have t admit that the Honda Grom 125 looks pretty cool. We kinda like how Honda’s engineers have managed to combine the tiny rims with that sporty bodywork and those shiny gold forks.
This funky stance reminds us about the 1969 CT70 which has clearly served as source of inspiration for Honda’s designers.
We won’t argue about the price either, as $2,999 seems a fairly legit number for what this bike has to offer. The Honda Grom 125 will be available in showrooms this August.
Hit the jump for the 2014 Honda Grom 125.
Okay, admit it: When you first look at the sporty and compact Grom™ you just have to smile. And no matter how long you’ve been riding, you just want to throw a leg over this bike and twist the throttle. It’s an excellent fit for both new and experienced riders, but to Gen Y buyers in particular the Grom carries a bit of attitude while promising fun times: the compact frame size, low seat, inverted front fork and hydraulic disc brakes make this the real deal. The fuel-injected 125cc engine delivers lots of torque, the 4-speed manual transmission works just like any other full-sized bike, the maneuverability and handling make it a joy to ride, and there’s even room for a passenger. Factor in its efficient size with an affordable price, and there’s just no way you can pass up this chance to get out and ride. Because no matter who you are, the Grom will keep you smiling, ride after ride.
Honda’s 2014 Grom™ is a fresh, new way to add some fun, practicality, independence and style to your life. Fun: This new machine is a blast to ride, offering all the excitement of a full-sized motorcycle but in a package that just about anyone old enough to have a license can handle. Practical: The Grom’s thrifty Honda engine means you can run it on pocket change, and you can park it just about anywhere too.
Independence: With your own wheels, you can bag the bus and forget about having to beg for rides from your friends or—shudder—your Mom. Stylish: Check out the Grom for yourself. And then think of it as a blank canvas, waiting for you to customize it.
The new Honda Grom. Big attitude. Ride one and see.
The key to a great motorcycle is starting with a great motor, and Honda makes the best. The new Grom features a low-maintenance, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine. Electric starting makes it a snap to get going, and a standard motorcycle transmission gives you the control you want.
The new Grom may be small, but when it comes to features it’s all Honda. The four-speed transmission works just like a full-sized bike’s so you get plenty of performance and control. Hydraulic disc brakes front and rear give you excellent stopping power.
The new Grom feels even lower than its 29.7-inch seat height, thanks to the bike’s light weight, low center of gravity, and narrow seat/tank junction. All that adds up to maximum fun.
