If HOnda made that bike i'd probably have to get one. I bet it's a pretty fun bike. But I do wonder how long it would take to get bored with it. Anybody actually have a grom? Are they fun?

Yup! Slow as shit but also fun as shit. I will never get rid of mine. I'd sell the Ducati first.
Also have a big bore kit laying around ,"just" have to install it...

the local bike scene has suddenly gone Grom crazy. People with serious 1000cc sportbikes are getting them. Guys I know that race WERA seriously are getting them.

They're just seriously stupid fun, and especially fully geared up, relatively hard to really hurt yourself on one, being lower to the ground and at much lower velocities than you normally find yourself.

I plan to hoon around on it, see if I can learn how to do various types of wheelies and drift the rear to back it in. My wife wants to ride it for local errands - she's very meticulous about her Monster and doesn't like putting miles on it, among other OCD things about her precious bike.

And for sure I'm going to run this thing in the Grom Cup. Already got the rules for what I can mod/not mod. Don't know what will happen though if I get a rival and I kick the bastard off his bike :P

I don't know shit about Grom but looks like you have to do something with pegs? it will hit when you have your knees down. I saw a video of a guy in Dragon go off the road because of pegs? maybe it was tires.
