First thing’s first, let us take a closer look at the Honda Grom and what makes this bike such a hit. It was released in 2014 and immediately made waves in the biking community. It was actually so popular that it won the Motorcycle USA Motorcycle of the Year award for 2014.
What caught most people off-guard was the unconventional design and aesthetics. It is often compared to the minibike Z series also known as the “monkey bikes”. Unlike the large super bikes and dirt bikes that the brand is known for, the Grom stands in at a mere 75 cm in seat height.
The compact size has several benefits which contribute to the bike’s overall popularity. It makes it stable and easier to maneuver, which is why it is so popular with beginner bikers. It also improved on aerodynamics and weight, making the machine a lot more fuel-efficient.
The Honda Grom is also known for its awesome ergonomics. From the seat design to the handle, it is built for maximum comfort. This plus the compact design definitely makes it fun to ride and also makes pulling bike stunts like wheelies easier by offering superior control.
Despite being so small, the Honda Grom is a pretty powerful bike. It has a 125cc engine with air cooling and a 4-stroke system. This is responsible for the 10 horse power output and an overall speed capacity of 56 miles per hour, which is quite impressive for such a small bike.
All in all, it is a very reliable bike with awesome design specifications and high quality construction.
