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]

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 OE fuel pump by authorized Honda dealers.

In June 2015, Honda also issued a Non-Compliance recall for the emissions sticker on the swing arm for 2014–15 models. Authorized dealers were sent new emission stickers, with the correct information.[5]

Variants and Similar Models[edit]

The Honda Navi, a Grom-styled scooter, was launched in India in 2016.[1]

The Honda Monkey, introduced in 2018 (as the 2019 model year), is based on the Grom engine and running gear. It is styled to resemble the Honda Z series Mini Trail (commonly known as "Monkey Bikes").
