Great city bike

published

I had quite a few bikes, Triumph Bonnevilles, Kawazaki W, and more recently a Harley 1200 Nightster. I sold the Harley and bought a second hand Grom 2016 a few months later. The experience had been great, this such a great city bike and really bring the fun back into riding. Like the Harley though, the rear suspensions are rubbish and what bring a big smile to my face while I'm riding it is instantly taken back when I try to lock my helmet under the seat. Almost a perfect but who is the idiot (I rarely use that word) that design the seat lock?! Maybe a 200/250cc version in the future? 4/5

Purchased for $3,000.

Great except for the small wheels

published

My daughter just bought a low km example, in pretty much as new condition. I checked it right over and couldn't find a scratch on it with 3000km on the clock. It's only a 125 so a little underpowered IMO. Perfectly fine for town use with short amounts of 90km/h zones. No good for any higher speed limits. My main dislike is the tiny wheels which feel odd mid corner with less gyroscopic effect than larger wheels. It's not as good as a normal bike, ie: a CB125. If you want one then buy one.

this thing is damn awesome its like riding a unicorn

published

i brought the 2016 model for 3k at 1,800kms with a two brothers exhaust and damn it sounds so goood! when you take the baffle out i've put on over 10,000kms since i've had it in the last year, and if your not very mature like myself but still enjoys pulling wheelies this might be the bike for you. yes its slow taking off and lane splitting can be scary at 80kms between 2 cars but holy jesus Christ this is the most funnest bike you'll own

My little green monster.

published

Bought a Grom because I'm fairly short (5'1") and needed something small to be able to manage. Love the green color of the fairings which seem out there and also acts to improve rider visibility. Very fun to ride, however lacks real oomph and power which is expected for a 125cc. Have clocked it at 110km with minimal wind resistance. The Grom keeps you in a comfortable upright sitting position. Overall it meets my expectations and also fulfills my riding needs, its no drag racing motorbike but it does its job and can generally keep up with the traffic.

So fun.. So cheap!

published

This bike is really cheap considering how much fun you have on it. Purchased one nearly 6 months ago and I can't get enough of it. So easy to ride, and very comfortable - good enough for long distance unlike other bikes. The bright colours make it stand out and is often pointed out for its great looks!
