One thing that really amazes about the Grom is the weight. It only weighs 225 pounds which includes all standard equipment, required fluids and full tank of fuel and ready to ride.

I'm about 200lbs and I nearly weigh the same as this bike.

225LBS isn't too bad at all, it's enough that some people can easily lift up their own Grom with ease. Even better is the weight cap on this bike at 350LBS, which is enough for a couple of your average sized riders and some of their carry-on's and accessories.

That is why it's so easy to do stunts. It is so light.

I think the stated weight of the Honda MSX 125 at 225lbs is dry it will be a bit more with all the fluids like gas and oil.

225 is ready to ride weight.
Correct, that meaning with all the fluids, full tank of fuel. Will be cool to see what weight will be like with as many carbon fiber replacement parts as possible. It's going to be tough getting the bike under 200 LBS

What would you switch out for carbon fiber? The panels are already light as it is. I'm pretty sure they're plastic.

Loosing 25lbs on a 200lb bike is not easy.

Glad to hear my weight won't be an issue on this bike. I am really going to look into this bike for booting around the cottage. My mom has an electric scooter but I would rather grab one of these to have there.

You can save mainly on exhaust and a battery.

My goal is to get mine under 200lbs for the track...it's going to be difficult.

Lights and license plate accessories are probably 3-4lbs total.
Exhaust, maybe 6-8lbs savings (you can drop 15lbs off the cbr250r exhaust).
Battery probably a couple pounds...

That's still only 15lbs.

The other 10 will have to come from magic and my sawzall.

I calculated at least 3 lbs savings on a battery, if you take Ballistic 4 cell battery instead of SLA, and probably at least 10 lbs on exhaust.
