If you’d like more fun in your commute, this Honda Grom looks just the ticket.
It’s a radical-looking commuter bike that could add heaps of fun to the urban lifestyle.
It looks like a monkey bike on steroids, has a low 754mm seat, a super-light 102kg low centre of gravity, 124.9cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine, fat 12-inch tyres and a four-speed transmission.
“This product is still under review by our product planning department; no announcements at this stage,” says Honda Australia spokeswoman Emma Kershaw.
With the Learner-Approved Motorcycles Scheme (LAMS) market growing in leaps and bounds, it would be a great addition to the Honda line-up.
