After Stuart Garner has acquired the rights to move on the Norton name further, he started the revival of the brand with three old prototypes that were put on the paper almost 10 years ago.

However, to make its motorcycles more appealing to the public, Stuart Garner decided to make a few key upgrades to its old models. So, as far as technology is concerned the Norton Comando 961 Café Racer comes with fuel injection, a catalyst exhaust and secondary air injection which help it achieve Euro3 compliance. And the list doesn’t stop here as there were made a lot of other small and big improvements and modifications to bring the 10 year old motorcycle into the present.

Though, despite the comprehensive list of upgrades made to the Norton Commando 961 Cafe Racer, one department remained mostly unchanged. We are talking about the motorcycle’s classy design language which is fairly good looking.

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.
