Grommy grom, Honda’s new hotness
I love tiny bikes. Unfortunately a lot of tiny bikes are just not usable on a day to day basis. Also unfortunate, is the fact that I’m poor and can’t have more than one bike. Enter the 2014 Honda Grom.
With it’s relatively cheap $2,999 stating price, anyone can get one (except for me because I already have a bike)! This low power, low cost, low height option will allow many young riders get a taste of freedom. It also looks like a blast to ride. People are reporting 100+ MPG in these bikes and with a few tweaks, some have even gotten up to freeway speeds.
I definitely don’t recommend going on the freeway on something that can only do 70 mph. It’s dangerous, because it takes the Grom forever to get up to that speed and because no one does the speed limit. But it is possible!
Take a look at this Redfoo looking hipster guy just destroy some MotoX with a Grom at a Honda event:
This just makes me want one even more! Hopefully these pop up on craigslist for $1500 in a year or so!
Groms are also great for short riders. Just listen to the praise coming from a 4’11″ woman:
Geez, these things sound fun! GIVE ME ONE!
