Overall I am impressed with the Honda Grom, but there a couple things I would change. I would personally change the flatten the design seats. I could see the sloping design crushing the boys :eek:. I would also add more power to increase the top speed, so I can pass cars on the highway.

A flat seat would look strange on a design like this.

The Ruckus seats are flat. But thats because the ruckus is kind of flat looking in general.

If that is the case either get spaded or simply just get a Honda ruckus instead. with flatter seat usually those are scooter / mopeds. I think the seat i suitable for the Grom since the rising style is a bit different than than those.

I agree that the Grom would be looking a bit strange if it did have flatter seats. I think it would take away from the Grom's credibility. The Grom's styling takes from the CRF line I think if you look closely at it. changing the seat will make it too much like a scooter.

right now I would say that the seat is well built ergonomically for the rider. I don't think any body will just be cruising on the Grom.

I probably would have replaced the digital dash with analog inputs.



Also not a big fan of the tail where the license plate goes. Hopefully that is easily removable.

I'd like to see a more flashy looking exhaust rather than an all black exhaust with grey tips. not sure how the rest of you feel about that though, some might think it's too much.

I just think the grom can stand out a bit more

There will be a fender eliminator kit out soon for the MSX125 if there already isn't one. The only problem is that there isn't much clearance space between the rear tire and the undertail exhaust.

I would take of the pegs for the rear passenger that whole piece off would make the Grom so much cleaner in my opinion. The fender with the license plate hold are always ugly don't know why Honda hasn't figured out a way to display the license plate and have it look good.

the only problem with relocating the the license plate bracket is that it takes the view a way most authority might say causing an issue so Honda just plays it safe.

One thing I would love to ask Honda to do on the Grom is to possibly come out with a different exhaust configuration. Like dual side canister exhaust.

like this

i'll admit to that exhaust looking good but honestly it is over kill and might even hurt the performance for the Grom since the engine is only a single and only pumps out about 10 horsepower.

That is okay for me I don't mind the compromise for the grom. If I ever had an itch for speed I would just start up my Ducati 999 ;)

the 125 cc engine on the grom is for leisure anyways. Popping a wheelie on the Grom is much more forgiving than on the 999.
