This is John from CompisMo Fabs. Can't believe he did it. He is probably the first one to have a MSX 125 in possession here.

Just wait and see what he does to it...

Yep, "giant" here :) hahah! although probably very representative of the "average" rider here in the States i guess (we big n fat, ya know?)

I will say that the bike is definitely comfortable... my "natural" riding position slides my arse back towards the back of the seat though on EVERYTHING i ride... even my Yamaha Zuma 125... i'd sit basically in the passenger seat, because i like more of a straight-legged riding position... its much more comfy for my old.n.busted knees.

For instance, i will NOT be first in line for rear-sets for this bike... the pegs are in a VERY comfy position for actual riding... now, if i buy one of these to do some mini-bike racing with or something (which i'll probably lose at racing anyway, since i'm not exactly a lightweight), then i'll look into some rear-sets... but for normal riding, that'll get uncomfy real quick for me.

Hey Composi, how were you able to get a bike so soon in North America?

at 6 foot and over 200 LBS, this guy sitting on the grom doesn't make it look that small after all. I expected the grom to look tiny....

Yea it looks fine to me. If anything he looks too big for that last one (which I can't figure out what it is yet)

No idea what it is either, i originally thought it was a ruckus but it looks way too different. either it is a ruckus that has been customized quite a bit or some different bike/scooter

I think it looks normal compared to a grown man on a fiddy!

Size comparison

It seems a lot of people think the Grom is tiny, but when i picked mine up last month it is bigger than i expected. I took some pictures next to a '69 z50 and another custom '76 z50 i built to give you guys an idea. I have a 33" inseam and while it is slightly cramped its nothing like a z50. I have ridden 4 hours at a time and have been quite comfortable with the seat cushion. The stock seat is pretty damn hard. I love it and have been riding it like a thai hooker. It will scoot me around at 65 mph all day on a half tank of fuel.

Very nice comparison shot. I haven't seen many shots of the MSX/Grom next to other motorcycles.

How is it at 65mph? Is it screAming for mercy like a z50 wide open throttle at 35mph in 3rd?
