For those of us in North America, do you plan to buy the first production run Grom or will you wait? While it would be nice to be one of the first adopters, I find it's wiser to wait and see if there are any issues. Or rather Honda makes some big improvements.

Ive ridden mine almost 500 miles not a single problem. I don't think you have to wait. It's been out for a while now and the reliability of this engine has been proven in the wave for a few years. Honda built a nice machine here and i expect to have many trouble free years of riding. The gearbox is beefy as hell and i believe it could handle 20hp easily.

The MSX125 has been out internationally for a while. So I doubt the Grom will have some sort of design flaw that requires fixing after launch.

There is absolutely no way I would hold off on the Honda Grom. The Honda MSX 125 (asian market model) has been out and performed well with flying colors I don't think we have anything to worry about.

That is why you buy warranties! Honda is offering 48 months for $500. That is peanuts. I doubt there will be any issues unless they are user related ones. I could see it happening like someone cracking open the belly and spewing oil from stunting.

I would have assumed it would be free for at least the first couple of years, with an option to buy extended warranty.

Buying new Honda car covers you with 3 years warranty for free. Does it work differently for bikes?

$500 doesn't seem like much but for a $3000 bike that is a big chunk.
