Grom/MSX vs KSR
I have owned both. Done over 25000km on a KSR. The KSR was good and parts were relatively cheap (compared to Australia) however more expensive than other bikes (in Thailand).
KSR tires were difficult to source outside of major cities (Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Pattaya)
KSR didn't have a clutch and didn't want to pay to put one on.
KSR looked better than other local bikes in Thailand and got a lot of attention.
MSX125 more expensive than KSR but has better equipment.
Both are small bikes (slow) not good for carrying a load (such as honda wave) terrible for lane splitting (bars are too wide, Honda Sonic 125 best bike), poor storage (honda click is great).
However both are cool looking little mini bikes.
Design It, make it, break it, make it stronger
