Hey guys just picked up an 18 Grom in white for a great deal! Curious to know if anybody else owns a Grom. They are fun little bikes! And cheap to maintain! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

I was thinking of getting a grom until I saw the pic's of the new monkey 125 which my dealer should have by next January

Yeah I saw the monkey, we wanted it too, but that looks to be starting at $4000, and not worth it to me. But the monkey is definitely cool looking!

I agree, as much as I would like to have a Monkey, that price will keep me away.

I can do a lot of repairs and upgrades to my Z50 for a lot less than that.

One of my RC51 buddies has a Grom, but he's really done a number on it. It's all hot rodded (as much as can be done with a Grom anyway). He's actually had it out on the track a few times. Very cool.

You'll like yours

I love it! I laugh almost 75% of the time I’m on it. I don’t know what it is, but it’s just soooooo much fun, but it’s got to be the most ridiculous bike out there! Lol

My Grandson has one. Looks like a gorilla trying to ride a very noisy bumble bee. :grin2: Isaac
Lmao! I’m planning on getting this helmet cover soon to go with the grom.

I wanted one too but the low top end of 55-60 mph just won't cut it riding on state highways with 70mph. I had a 160cc Kymco scooter that would top out at 63 going down hill. Didn't like riding the shoulder to let others pass. Looks like fun in a city setting though.

I too would go Grom. But I would also consider the 2019 Super Cub coming early next year. A fuel injected 125cc like Grom, with ABS front disk and priced about $3600. Hmmmm
