The Grom gets updated for 2021

I check out the new Honda Grom for 2021

The Honda Grom MSX125 is the latest offering from Honda, with revised styling a new LCD dash and squidge more power. Could be a right little city monster!

Since Honda introduced the Grom back in 2013 it has gained a massive cult following in the UK, USA, Thailand and Japan!
So Honda are taking a risk giving the Grom a makeover, maybe trying to bring new bikers over to the brand?
The most poignant change being the gigantic hike in power up to 9.6 bhp at 7250rpm, and now has a 5th gear pushing the top speed up to a mighty 58MPH!!!!!! CAREFUL NOW!

The most obvious change from the old model is the update to the bikes exterior styling. For 2021, the Grom includes new bodywork that is easily removed and customised – each panel is held on with just six bolts. The Honda also features a revised seat unit and subframe for the new model.

The chassis of the Grom for 2021 remains pretty much the same as before with 31mm USD forks pairing with a two-piston caliper and 220mm disc at the front, and a single-piston caliper and 190mm disc at the rear. The Grom is still rolling on 12” rims and still offers a super-low seat height of 761mm and a wet weight of 103kg.
