2014 HONDA GROM 125

             2014 HONDA GROM 125




As expected, American Honda announced that the Taiwan-built, fuel-injected, 125cc Grom will be for sale in the U.S. as a 2014 model, priced at $2999.
The Grom, known as the MSX125 in other markets [read our post on the MSX125 here], looks like it will be a blast to ride, offering what Honda says is “all the excitement of a full-sized motorcycle but in a package that just about anyone old enough to have a license can handle.”
It is clearly a modern interpretation of the 1969 CT70, and, like that long-running get-started-riding motorcycle, the Pearl Red or Metallic Black Grom 125 promises broad accessibility and charming approachability, coupled with a price that is hard to argue with. Expect the Grom in dealers this August.
