Hello all,

I'm a former rider who's looking to get back into bikes after seeing the pics of the Grom! I'm really happy to see Honda offering a smaller displacement bike for the US market (at a decent price, even!). I'm really curious to see how the bike will be received here in the states, and really hope it's a hit for Honda. Hopefully, it will lead to more manufacturers following suit.

Anyways, just wanted to say "Hi" from the land of year-round riding! :D

Thanks all. My last ride was a Suzuki Burgman 400. Loved the auto tranny, ergonomics and ridiculous storage space, but found it a little too heavy for what it was.

Always wanted to go with an auto transmission..

Big shift to a grom there, you looking for better mpg, into stunts or just love the look of the grom?

All of the above? Lol. Seriously though, my Burgman got about 60 mpg, so I can't honestly claim better mpg is a factor (unless gas prices continue to rise through the summer, which is a real possibility, in which case every last mpg will count).

There's just something intangible about the Grom. Maybe it's the combination of excellent mpg, growing aftermarket support, and a lightweight/nimble package? There are plenty of other naked bikes on the market, but none have the same "fun factor" to me.

Auto trannies are an absolute joy to ride, but will spoil you.
