i feel that grom will be a class-breaker for the 125cc class (crf, xr, dr, kl, ttr, nsx100, nsr50 etc.)
can't wait to tear it up on the grom with njminigp

The Grom will be awesome for racing right out of the box. If left in stock form, one could even save a bundle on gas by simply riding it to the track!

I actually do want to get into mini racing with the GROM. I've obv never been (first minibike) but I have gone to the track a few times with my 600 and it is very obvious I am not ready for that yet.

after riding mini for a while, big track is stupid-easy. you have plenty of time, everything happens much slower, and you have so much more space.

After I started riding my NSR 50 on the track, I sold my 250 and stopped riding the streets. Haha less stressful, much safer and much more fun!!

i have a feeling once the grom shows up the nsr and xr will stop seeing any hours. our club is already pondering an Spec Grom class (stock grom, only suspension and controls can be changed)

Hey Serg!
Just got here...looks badass...I think I can squeeze one or two of those in the paddock - but it definately has an impact on which trailer I'm looking at.
I wonder how the motor might fit in the NSR chasis?

I believe you can make the swap into the nsr happen! And then put the nsr engine into the grom. For a street legal 2smoke :p
