Honda grom 125

The Honda MSX125 was introduced earlier this year and with its enthusiastic and fun appeal it was almost immediately a bike that was much talked about. Honda has now introduced the bike to the US and the European markets to ensure that this monkey bike gets to all the right places at the right time. The only change though is that the Honda MSX125 will be called the Grom for these markets.

With a motor that produces just about 10 horses from a 125cc mill, do not be fooled into thinking it is a slouch. Its light, its fast and probably the most nimble thing on two wheels out there. Its costs just a dollar short of 3000 making it cheap when you consider the alternatives in the international markets and the features it offers. The Grom can be used for just about anything and can find its use right from grocery shopping to quick nimble city riding and even as a pit bike. Check out the Honda Grom specifications below along with more photographs.
