2018 Honda Grom

Last year the Honda Grom received a number of mostly cosmetic upgrades. The 2018 Honda Grom has a new functional option—ABS. Impressively, the ABS option only adds $200 to the price of the 125cc urban bike.

Designed to fit full-size adults, yet not intimidate new riders, the Honda Grom is pure fun. It has a disarming look that allows you to go a bit hooligan without upsetting non-riders in the vicinity—they think it’s kinda cute.

From a purely functional standpoint, if you ride in city areas with speed limits under 50 mph, you’re going to find a lot to like about the Honda Grom. It’s easy to ride, barely uses any gas, and you can park it just about anywhere.
