Just checked one out, they wanted 3999 out the door, ill wait for a used one.
It was much more substantial than it looks in pictures!
Quite a nice bike, I would tour on it!

Gee - that video mentions "less than $3,000"... I guess the dealers didn't get that memo?

he got then added 900 bucks in add on fees i guess. AT 3 grand there only making 300 bucks but I do not like rip offs like 300 bucks for paperwork , 300 to 400 for prep etc.

I love it!

THe wife and I are going to a scooter rally next week. It's in Austin and just about 100 miles from where we are in San Antonio. There will be ride around the area to some BBQ joint. We can't wait. I'm curious to see if there will be other Grom owners.

There is a 200cc BBK and head kit available from Thailand.Requires a new engine case.There's an American guy working up a 170cc BBK that doesn't require a new case,but still requires a new head to utilize all the power from the 170cc BBK.

I have to wonder if within a couple years Honda will bump up the engine size to a 150 like they did with the Elite and the PCX.

Possible,but no time soon.The MSX/Grom has been to big of a hit and only a few of us power junkies are begging for more.

I was thinking more along the lines of a CR250 engine swap. All the fun of an RZ350 at 1/2 the size.
