The Honda Grom has finally arrived in Australia so let’s take a look at the newest addition to Honda Australia family.

With a 124.9cc air-cooled single-cylinder four stroke engine the Honda Grom makes for a great beginner/learner legal road bike as well as providing enough fun for the more experienced rider to play with.

If you are a keen bike enthusiast you will be surprised to notice that whilst sitting quite low to the ground and pint-sized compared to most motos you see cruising the street the Honda Grom still feels quite spacious even for a full sized adult rider. The Grom is lightweight coming in at 104kgs with grippy 12inch tyres making it a breeze to handle.

All the information you need whilst on the road -speedometer, twin trip meters, fuel gauge and clock are provided on the new LCD Digital Dash along with some neat design features such as a compact underslung exhaust, flip key, airplane tank cap and 4 eye-catching colours to choose from.

The Honda Grom provides plenty of power for your local streets easily handling anything under 100kms/hr and is small enough to fit into those tight inner city parking spots making it the perfect weekday commuter.

Definitely one of the most exciting things however is how easily the Honda Grom can be modified and tricked up with aftermarket parts. RCraft is excited to be one of the very first to get our hands on some seriously cool accessories from our Japanese suppliers.

The Honda Grom is sure to become an Aussie favourite with what seems like endless modification possibilities.
