"American Honda continues its aggressive campaign to foster new riders and provide fuel-efficient alternatives suitable for urban applications with the introduction of its 2014 Grom. The 125cc Grom is small, practical, and from the
Hooning on the Grom
Honda enlisted the services of a stunt rider to demonstrate the fun factor on its new mini street extreme motorcycle, the 2014 Grom.
video supporting its release, fun to ride as demonstrated by the stunt rider doing stoppies, pulling wheelies and generally hooning on the bike.

The little four-stroker features a 124.9cc air-cooled, Single-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed transmission. Though power output has yet to be listed, the same motorcycle was launched overseas under the name Honda MSX 125, MSX standing for Mini Street Extreme, whose Single charted a claimed 9.7 hp @ 7000 rpm and 8 lb-ft of torque @ 55000 rpm. An inverted front fork set out at only 25-degrees of rake and a small 12-inch, 120mm wide tire should make the bike very rider-friendly, as should the 29.7-inch seat height and claimed 225-pound curb weight.

Stopping power, as demonstrated in the video, should be fairly good thanks to hydraulic disc brakes front and rear with a 220mm disc fore and a 190mm disc aft. Damping duties on the rear will be provided by a solo shock with 4.1-inches of travel. The 2014 Grom has a 1.45-gallon tank that features a proprietary split-structure which allowed Honda to tuck the PGM-FI system inside as well.

Though its physical dimensions teeter just above the size of a pit bike, Honda attempted to incorporate big-bike styling in the 2014 Grom by giving it a projector-style headlight, side panels for bodywork and an ample-sized digital display panel with a speedo, odometer, tach, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, clock and a high beam indicator light. It will be offered in two colors, Metallic Black and Pearl Red and lists for $2999.

The 2014 Grom adds to Honda’s ever-expanding list of affordable, entry-level motorcycles, joining the likes of the CBR250R, CBR500R, CB500F and CB500X.

Here’s what Honda PR has to say about the company’s latest offering:

Honda's 2014 Grom is a fresh, new way to add some fun, practicality, independence and style to your life. Fun: This new machine is a blast to ride, offering all the excitement of a full-sized motorcycle but in a package that just about anyone old enough to have a license can handle. Practical: The Grom's thrifty Honda engine means you can run it on pocket change, and you can park it just about anywhere too.

Independence: With your own wheels, you can bag the bus and forget about having to beg for rides from your friends or—shudder—your Mom. Stylish: Check out the Grom for yourself. And then think of it as a blank canvas, waiting for you to customize it"
