Well, I’m sure this doesn’t come off as a surprise to anyone when it comes to acceleration, as building revolutions to reach peak torque is no match for 100% instant torque off the line. A stock gas Grom has, according to a dyno test from Cycle World, 8.96 HP and 7.95ft/lb torque, but requires high rpm's to reach. Cycle World also observed a max speed of 52mph. The Grom rider in the video below got 50mph one direction and 53 the other for a 51.5 avg. It took 17.27 seconds one direction and 20.79 seconds the other way for a 19.03 second avg to 50mph. Comparatively, a 96v electric Grom accelerates to 50mph in half that time While rated at only "2hp", a 96v electric Grom is twice quicker and requires no clutch or shifting, so launches are consistently repeatable with no chance of stalling. Adding quickness is made possible with 2 additional batteries wired in series to the stock e-Grom’s pack for less than $100 and in under an hour to get it to 96v. (even a stock e-Grom out accelerates a stock Grom to ~35mph as I discovered racing against my buddies Grom). A gas Grom can be modded too of course fit quicker performance, but acceleration can’t be doubled for the same amount of money. EV riders will concede that range and time to recharge are clear advantages of gas, but if you can recharge while you're shopping, working, or sleeping (like our cellphones), then it's not that much of an inconvenience and one could argue that having to go to a gas station is an inconvenience compared to fueling up at your destination or at home. Adventurers though may find it difficult coming across available outlets, not to mention the time it takes to recharge, although on occasion, I've been allowed to plug in at gas stations when unexpectedly needing more juice between destinations. I love the Grom in both gas and electric forms for its size, value, and fun. Theres just something to be said about the instant torque of the electric, making a fun bike that much more thrilling to ride.
