Honda has fired the next shot in what is quickly becoming a battle for buyers in a newly created 125cc market.
Honda has returned fire by announcing pricing on the 2016 Honda Grom, a special introductory offer and a dedicated website.
Until mid February this market segment was virtually non existent, but now the two manufacturers are fighting for buyers – and the bikes aren’t even here yet!!
Both of the little 125s are known for being lightweight and fun, they make great commuters while still being capable of a weekend run.
They remind us of the little mini bikes we had to run around on as kids, except these are fully fledged road bikes.
The Grom is due here mid-2016 and Honda has announced a special limited launch offer of just $3,999 ride-away.
That pricing applies to all Grom’s delivered before 31 July 2016, and pre-orders are being taken now.
The mini-streetfighter is built around Honda’s well-proven and super-efficient fuel-injected 125cc engine.
It is well equipped with a compact chassis that features a sturdy steel frame, inverted front forks, monoshock rear suspension and powerful hydraulic disc brakes on lightweight 12-inch wheels.
The punchy little motorcycle will be available in Metallic Pearl Valentine Red, Lemon Ice Yellow and Matte Axis Grey.
The Honda Grom is also known as the MSX 125 overseas and has already developed something of a cult following.
