Honda Returns Fire In The Battle Of The 125 Mini-Sports Bikes

Honda has fired the next shot in the “battle of the 125 mini’s”.

Earlier this week Kawasaki confirmed it was bringing the Z125 PRO to Australia mid year, setting up a battle for sales in the new 125cc mini bike market.

Honda has returned fire by announcing pricing on its 2016 Honda Grom, a special introductory offer and a dedicated website.

The Honda Grom has wowed riders all over the world and the new compact commuter is now expected to take the Australian market by storm with its serious fun factor and simple, lightweight design.

It’s due here mid-2016 and Honda has announced a special limited launch offer of just $3,999 ride-away.

That pricing applies to all Grom’s delivered before 31 July 2020 and pre-orders are being taken now.

Honda has designed the Grom as a cool mini sport bike for people looking for a flexible funky bike to ride in the city and cruise around on the weekends.

The mini-streetfighter is built around Honda’s well-proven and super-efficient fuel-injected 125cc engine.

It is well equipped with a compact chassis that features a sturdy steel frame, inverted front forks, monoshock rear suspension and powerful hydraulic disc brakes on lightweight 12-inch wheels.

The punchy little motorcycle will be available in Metallic Pearl Valentine Red, Lemon Ice Yellow and Matte Axis Grey.

The Honda Grom is also known as the MSX 125 overseas.
