    It doesn't have to be hooligan riding all the time:

    Did you see some of that hooligan action at the 4:00 minute mark?

    At the very end of the video he's got it up to about 106-107 kph so about 65-67 mph. That's actually pretty good if you ask me! Sure, the actual top speed is probably closer to 60 mph, but hey, this thing is less than 10 HP.

    I LOVE the yellow one.

    We're just not getting that color.

    I want yellow too. Did you notice how he mounted it from the right side? The stock pipe is pretty quiet but it has a nice sound at idle IMO.

    I already bout a set of white plastics. I could not find any yellow.

    Also I just noticed that the white bike has a single piece under the rear of the seat. I did not get that piece :cry

    I read that earlier in the thread.I don't look for the yellow to be all that popular state side.

    Can you find that filler panel from the place you bought the white plastics?

    No they don't list them for the black or white that they are selling. They are genuine Honda parts though. I just need to get a part number.

    Yes and I think it's because the seat height is so low. I sometimes do that on my wife's PCX (PCX and Grom have a comparable seat height).

    I am thinking about the black one and getting the yellow plastics for the tank only.

    That part is called a "shroud" and they were $22 a pop.

    Black would look good with the white.

    Now that's an idea.I like the thought of mixing and matching the red and black.Maybe black and white.Ah hell,just mix red,black,and white. :lol3

    $22 isn't to bad considering their Honda parts.

    Where are all the ATGATT riders that should be having a heart attack over this? I guess they would not likely be found on a thread about a bike like this. I am not an ATGATT rider, but the more videos like this I see, the more I begin to see things from their perspective. Anybody see the shadow of the drone overhead at about 1:40?
