Honda Grom is awesome.

Here they are at the dealership when we walked in. Tom's (Scorpio) is the red one.

Here's my dad bombing thru the parking lot at the dealer. Who knows what the sales guys were thinking haha.

This is the picture the sales guy took. Real nice guy. We were the 1st people to leave with a Grom at Honda of Houston.

My dad rode it to home from the dealer and look what I caught him doing.

3C9A8898 3874 41E4 AC8C CEDE6F46F5C6 8655 0000039E7ECE2123 zps784b915d



Can't wait to be able to ride it. All I can for right now is sit on it till my leg heals.

As it sits it will do about 65. With a big bore it will do 85-90.

Do they have a "real"/hand clutch or are they like a fifty?
Bet they'll get amazing gas mileage.

lots of em






I saw your posts on FB, thats a great looking bike.
I am clueless though, what is it and what makes it special?
I'm guessing small CC so it competes with the scooter world but for cooler people?
