I already said black peg brackets, black front blinker brackets, the fender eliminator "tail tidy" ComposiMo made... but how about black forks? Awesome!




Or a lower cowl...

The black forks make the bike look mean and a little stealthy. I still like the gold but to eaxh his own.

I'd pick the second one.

But I like shiny bits so I'm probably going with a aluminum polished one :D

I keep looking at all the mods, add-ons etc. and then go and look at the bike, and do you know what? I quite like it just as it is. :)

I do like the reflective tape on the wheel rims and I will be fitting some extra lights, maybe Bullet Lights, so cage drivers have a better chance of seeing me, but the Black colour lends itself to classic good looks and is already stylish, IMHO.

I fully agree that the second one looks better. The top one is like hundreds of dollars in mods, the bottom on is like thousands of dollars. I was just pointing out specific mods on the bikes I like.

Yep, it is always down to personal choice, two of my British Classics have been Black with Gold pinstriping and although this bike is NOTHING like the others, I feel Honda have created a design classic with this machine, just like the original Monkey Bikes. Most of the early Japanese bikes were copies of an earlier generation, then they improved and once in a while they innovated. I remember when the first Honda 750/4 arrived, it set the motorcycling world on fire.

This one may only make it smoulder, but there will be copies and imposters on the market before you can say "Sayonara-baby"!

That is why any mods I do, I have the stock parts to put it back if needed. I think this could be a collector bike some day.

What makes it fun and trying different parts until you get what you like.
Your wallet won't like it very much though :)

also good to keep stock parts you replaced with aftermarket to help it be an easier sell since not everyone will want to buy someones project, always fun starting 100% stock and then doing your own build.

Part of me is appalled that you guys are modifying - or planning to modify - the Grom already. The other part of me thinks it's the perfect palette for modifications.

Gold forks, black lower cowl, and gold chain would be sweet. But I have to agree with other posters that this is a classic design. You never know what production will be like- this very well might be a collector's item one day. Honda is targeting new riders and our economy is ready for the revolution. Go Grom!
