Always wanted a KSR. Had plans to get one. Bought a grom and I will never look back. I can say that you will see the KSR fuel injected here in the next year or so. Kawasaki will not sit back and let honda take the lead

I have a 2011 KSR mini motard here is my intro:
https://www.gromforum.com/forum/new-r...ksr-owner.html

I love the KSR, it is light, it performs and handles well and in my opinion it looks nice, but it doesnít come with a clutch (I have to buy an aftermarket one), it doesnít have an rpm gauge, it has a carburetor, and I think a 120 rear would be better.

I have never riding the Grom so I donít know how it performs, itís about 15 pounds heavier than the KSR, and I donít like the looks (it's ducati looking), but having own many Hondas before I know the Grom will be a blast to ride. I donít know about the tire selection, but the Grom comes with everything I like, clutch, digital gauge (includes rpm gauge), and itís fuel injected.

Iím just happy to see Honda bringing the mini scene here to the US, and hope the other manufactures will follow.

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.
