2019 Honda Grom Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2019 Honda Grom

With a name like Grom, you know that this modern-styled tiny motorcycle is going to be fun – and it is. With fat-tired 12-inch wheels, a wheelbase just over 47 inches, a seat height 30 inches, and a curb weight of just 229 pounds, there isn’t much intimidating about the 2019 Honda Grom. The only thing that might slow down a brand new rider is the manual clutch and shifting.

2019 Honda Grom Buyer's Guide: Specs & PriceCertainly, the impressively powerful 125cc motor gets things moving. It is fuel-injected and has a SOHC architecture, and will take the Honda Grom to up to 50 mph or so. When you’re on a motorcycle that small, you definitely feel like you are going fast, though the Honda Grom is fully stable at top speed.

The suspension is fairly long at around four inches at each end, and the tires have a nice footprint for soaking up poorly maintained roads. Even when wide open, you don’t have to worry about the braking, between the sticky tires and disc brakes on both wheels.

Go ahead and spring for ABS when getting a Honda Grom – it’s only $200 and might bail you out when you need it. All of this fun comes with a fuel consumption rate that will have you doing a double-take at 134 mpg.
