But it's still a Kawi. Grom looks better, I think.

It's got a carb so that is a big negative in my book

The model itself is older indeed, styling is more supermotard instead of the more naked bike touches of our beloved grom, its not a bad bike but it cant be as nice or good as the grom

Small bike, Big attitude!

Not going to lie I like the idea of being able to put more aggressive tires on the KSR and taking it off road. I think it would be a contender to the Grom if it ever makes it to the states.

That picture above is an old model. I would say about 2010 model below. This is the new ksr Kawasaki Thailand

Looks alot better. I was thinking about getting the grom too. But here in the Philippines they still havent released the grom. Dont know yet when. Yesterday local dealer had a 2013 ksr on display. Fell in love right away with the mini bike. If you plan on staying stock, the grom is a good choice. But if you plan on modding, the ksr is better since its carb type. Easier to tune. Ill try to post some pics once i get the bike.

Also the ksr has both kick & electric start which is really good. So you have backup just incase you have a drained battery. Before it only had a kick start. Thats why I was surprised that now it had electric start aswell.

That new KSR looks good as well. I am curious is the GROM engine an update of the C90, C100, C110 range of engines?

I'm building a GROM killer out off a Kawi motorcycle if I do not get my GROM. I already got the idea and plans in the works plus I would have a six speed vers a 4 speed.
