I'm attracted to the Grom (and the Monkey) because they look a lot like the 1960's and 1970's-era Hondas I so desperately longed for as a kid. Compared to the Briggs and Stratton powered, rigid frame, scrub-brake POS mini-bike I had, the Honda Mini-Trail 50's and Trail 70's were mind-boggling. But that was a time and place that is long gone. And buying a Grom or Monkey will not recapture it. I wish they could.
