I bet i will see things loosen up a bit more as the break in continues. It ain't fast in the least but is surprisingly capable.

One thing I have noticed on a few recent rides is the total lack of respect. The Harley guys won't even look. The BMW guys will look but give you a snooty face and you can just forget a waive. The crotch rocket folks will shake there heads and then pull a wheelie like they are telling me to buy a real bike. Even the scooter crowd looks the other way.


On a more serious note for all Grom owners you have to be careful. I almost get hit every time I ride the Grom. Its just so small people just don't notice you. I have unofficially nick named it "Close Call" because my ride is full of close calls when I ride it.
Speed wise how does it compare to the elite110 and the sh150?

Size wise it ain't smaller then a scooter is it?

Great hooligan bike for sure.
