Every bike you ride around is an advertisement. Ride a grom around and see how much advertising you do for Honda.

Here we see the wild Bevo backed into a corner starring down the Jowls of Motohouston. He applies his last ditch effort for survival...... the mom jokes.

Did you get a good rate?

How much of a head start will you give me on RR?

But the truth is it just lacks power.

I can't help that they are fast. Unlike you I do not have brand loyalty hence why I own a KTM as well. I am loyal to those who are fast. So last time I checked in sanctions like the CMRA (club racing) in which the bikes being discussed are as close to "factory" (factory since we are discussing cost and advertised specs from Honda) Honda isn't doing so well. The fastest guys are on a r6, gsxr 750, and a ZX-10.

Sorry I'd rather spend the money investing in a competitive race bike then shovel money into a less than adequate machine... be it a grom or the flagship literbike.

Before you rebuttal bashing my 06 as less than adequate I should say If I had the Money. I have an 06 because I put everything I make into trying to ride it as it is. If I could manage better I would.

As pigfarmer can attest to, arguing with bevo is like mud wrestling a pig. Eventually you realize he enjoys it.
