The Little Ankle-Biter That Could

Introduced in 2014, the Grom from Honda is a compact bike with sportbike styling, two-up capabilities if you don’t mind having to Fred-Flintstone the take-off, has amazing fuel economy, and offers a little something more for folks who might consider a scooter in this size-range. Marketed in other countries as the MSX125, the Motrac M3, and the Skyteam M3, the Grom is a spunky little — “little” being the operative word here — motorcycle, good for folks new to two wheels or for anyone else who wants a fun ride. It’s not fast, but that’s not the point.

How about a Honda Grom Repsol Fireblade edition?

This Blackpool dealer showcases the Grom’s customization abilities

Honda sort of created a niche for itself with the original Grom in 2014 when it combined big-bike features with scooter-like proportions. Then, Honda dressed up their little Grom in 2017, giving it more aggressive styling and a new LED headlight that was carried over to 2018. Twelve-inch tires, while still small for a motorcycle, are a lot bigger than the Z-series tires and a 30-inch seat sits anyone without hindrances.

But this Blackpool (UK) based dealer has just found a way to make it look like the fasted monkey bike ever by slapping a super cool replica of Marc Marquez’s MotoGP Repsol Fireblade to it, with full fairing and rear panel with seat cowls.

Look ma', I am floating on air

Look ma’, I am floating on air

Air suspension for your two wheeler

The four-wheeled cars have it. Airmatic, Airdrive, Air ride, or whatever quirky adjectives they call it with, car mongers love them. Air suspension gives them a ride as though you were literally floating in the air since there does not exist any mechanical part connecting the tires and the body other than pure air.

All this high tech is reserved for four-wheelers for one simple fact, the availability of space. To carry a compressor, rubber bellows, and an air-pump, one needs enough space available in the chassis. Yet, the idea of using the compressibility of air as a spring on two-wheelers is as old as 1910.

You could do a 'Look mom, I'm floating on my motorcycle'.

You could do a ’Look mom, I’m floating on my motorcycle’.

Take a look at this cool tech used on a Honda Grom by a Japanese fanatic.

You must have seen sophisticated suspension setups on the expensive four-wheeled counterparts with them having quirky adjectives like airmatic, airdrive or air ride. The reason is as simple as the name is.

This high-tech is reserved for four-wheelers for one simple fact: availability of space. To carry a compressor, rubber bellows, and an air-pump, the motorcycle engineers cannot afford to pan sufficient space within the motorcycle frame and chassis.

Yet, the idea of using the compressibility of air as a spring on two-wheelers is as old as 1910. Fast forward to 2017, a chap in Japan has retrofitted a Honda Grom, a monkey bike from the same makers of the Fireblade. Using it as a suspension unit, he also made away with the side and the center stand and showcased his creation to the world.

2015 Honda Grom

2015 Honda Grom

I’ve always chuckled any time the name “monkey bike” is mentioned. The fact that “monkey” is attached to “bike” has always been pretty funny to me. But for what it’s worth, Honda’s new Grom bike is not only the perfect representation of the company’s history of monkey bikes but it’s also a modern-day machine that comes with all the technological bits and pieces to come out of the Japanese brand.

The diminutive Grom first burst into the scene in 2014 and in the short time that it’s been around, it’s become defined as a fun bike with a capital “F”! It’s the perfect start-up machine for somebody who’s just breaking into motorcycles and for those looking for a bike that’s not only a rollicking ball of fun to ride, also economical and affordable enough to be considered as an everyday commuter.

If scooters aren’t your thing, the Honda Grom is the perfect alternative. Or is it the other way around? Either way, the Grom is a veritable pocket rocket whose fun factor is quite simply put, off the monkey charts.
