Any reason to get a GROM over a Ruckus?

I've seen some bad Ruckus' before. Lots of parts and accessories for it.

My main reason to get a Honda Grom over Ruckus is because the Grom looks more like a true motorcycle while the Ruckus doesn't even come close to it. Ruckus's look cool but not if you want something that looks like a real motorcycle.

Im sure there will be just as much customization For the Honda Grom as the Ruckus.. to a degree.

But they are two totally different machines... One is a scooter with a 49cc engine, the other is basically a Mini Sportbike with a 125cc motor.

So you cant really compare the two... usless you look at something like the Honda KSR110.

good point, the ruckus is unique and there are ways the Honda Ruckus is customized that you wont see being done to a Grom, such as this styling for example:

Just had a crazy idea what if we swapped wheels from a ruckus and put the on the Honda Grom, It would be nice to go off road with these tires I think.

This is more of a style statement than function I don't know if many owners would do this to their Grom it would take out so much of the functionality. These custom ruckus' are more for show in a parking lot.

I've seen some pretty quick Ruckus scooters before. I think this would be a nice upgrade from a Ruckus - reason why I'm comparing.

it is indeed, this pretty much gives ruckus's a chopper-like feel to them if you know what im saying



okay that's not the best example but it's close enough. the ruckus just does an amazing job pulling together retro, chopper, etc styling all into an affordable mini version.

might have to get myself a ruckus and grom.

Unless you bring in the Ruckus' sibling the Honda Big Ruckus which is 250cc but still when you look at the chassis and platform it is hard to believe that this thing packs a punch.

I like the Grom for its Mini sport bike persona.

The way I see is that the Ruckus is more of a laid back bike and the Grom is more outgoing and carries a different attitude making any novice rider want to shot for that first ever wheelie.

The Grom definitely has a different attitude -- Grom for me.

The Grom is a minibike, the Rukus is a scooter. Very different yet very similar

That looks far better than the stock Ruckus. I would drive that.

While its true rucks do get paraded around as show bikes alot of us daily ours. Mines Just as slammed as the one in the pic but I ride it without air. I want a grom and might end up selling my Ruck for one, But I feel the customizing will Be limited. Groms cost more but they're faster and more capable. However I can hold fifty on my Ruck around town and that's good enough where I live. Its all about preference.

Hi all btw. Don't have a grom but I'm interested in one and will stay tuned on custom parts for them

It's a different style of bike. The advantage of a GROM is at least people will consider your ride an actual motorcycle.

The Ruckus is an awesome machine don't get me wrong.

I disagree with the aftermarket support. Have you seen the aftermarket thread in parts?

Rather have something that looks like a real motorcycle and the grom does that very well, the ruckus is just something for fun and to get around with.

Two different styles of bikes. the Ruckus is more for just cruising and all the subtle stuff and the Grom is a more aggressive breed. Besides going fast the Honda Grom can pretty much do anything.

At the end of the day the Ruckus is cool and all but I still see it as a scooter. The Honda Grom on the other hand is a tool for all trades in my eyes. Take it off roading or doing some wheelies and stoppies in the parking lot. Its a fun little bike.

I still would need a full sized motorcycle to ride but to scratch that itch for a little parking lot fun I will get the Grom for that reason. The Ruckus is good looking and all but the function is not all there when comparing to the Grom.

The Honda Ruckus is a chick that looks decent and cook alright meals, the Honda Grom is a smoking hot gal that would feed you the best meals you have ever tasted and go out of here way to please you. That is the way I see it ;)
