2014 Honda MSX125 Monkey Bike Coming to US as Honda Grom - Motorcycle.com News



From our friends at Motorcycle.com:

American Honda announced it will offer a new 125cc modern interpretation of the classic Monkey Bike to U.S. consumers as the Honda Grom. Originally announced in January for Asia as the MSX125, the new Honda Grom will arrive in the U.S. in August as a 2014 model. (UPDATED with video).

The compact Honda Grom is powered by a fuel-injected 125cc single-cylinder engine based on the powerplant used in the Honda Wave 125i scooter popular in Asia. American Honda did not release any performance numbers, but the parent company had previously claimed the MSX125 has an output of 9.7 hp at 7000 rpm and 8.0 ft-lb. at 5,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a four-speed transmission.

The Honda Grom I would consider a second sub class of scooter due to the engine displacement but from the look of the outside it just looks radical and extreme.

The body lines remind me a lot of a dirt bike but the headlight gives it more of a modern aggressive feel to it. I would prefer this over the popular Honda Ruckus.
I 've had some good moments on my brothers Honda Ruckus too bad it fell in the swimming pool though. we ended up doing a jump over a small ramp lost control and shot it in to the pool and thats all she wrote.

Good one Bama Dave!

Sounds like you enjoy hooning around with these things. The Grom is more well built for that occasion I think.

I just love how Honda has equipped the Grom with a four speed transmission.

The MSX125 does very well in Thailand, aftermarket support for these bikes in Thailand just shows how crazy the MSX125 scene is out there. Can't wait to see how crazy it will get here in the states! This forum being so busy is already a great sign!
