The Honda Grom (MSX125 in Europe and East Asia) is a 124.9 cc (7.62 cu in) air-cooled motorcycle made by Honda Motor Co. Inc. It won the Motorcycle USA Motorcycle of the Year prize for 2014.[2] It is rebranded by Motrac as the Motrac M3 (and Motrac M2 as the electric cell powered version) in Asian markets like Bangladesh, and in Italy in association with Italjet. The Grom is also known as the Skyteam M3 in other European markets.[citation needed] The Honda Navi, a Grom-styled scooter, was launched in India in 2016.[1]

Economy and performance[edit]

Part of the Honda Grom's success has been its fuel economy rating of 134 MPG,[3] 8.6 hp/8 ft lb,[4] and a top speed of 62 MPH.[3]

Recalls[edit]

American Honda Motor Co. Inc., released recall NHTSA 16V-661 on September 12, 2016, for a potential safety issue regarding the fuel pump inlet collapsing, preventing fuel flow. The recall indicates a free replacement of the OEM fuel pump by authorized Honda dealers.[5]
