Whether you are a beginner or not, the 2020 Honda Grom is here to save your boring day. The main reason for such characteristics lays in the excellent design of this motorcycle. One look at it and you know it’s all about fun. The Grom is small but pretty capable. First of all, it features a quite powerful engine, while we also like the suspension setup. Of course, the reason why this bike seems perfect for beginners is the seat height. Also, the bike looks very attractive and comes in various color options. For this year, we haven’t seen any particular change, so you may count on familiar features and specs.
2020 Honda Grom Powertrain
The core of this small but capable engine is a single-cylinder 125cc engine, which is simple but quite powerful. It delivers plenty of power in a wide rpm range, while electronic ignition and programmed fuel injection make the also pretty efficient. Furthermore, the engine comes in pairs with a four-speed transmission. Despite we are talking about a small, entry-level bike, such setup ensures pretty amazing riding experience, at the level, you would expect from any other “big” motorcycle. Finally, the best thing about this motorcycle is fuel economy. With the 2020 Honda Grom, you may count on pretty impressive 134 miles per gallon.
2020 Honda Grom Chassis and Suspension Design
The lightweight chassis is also one of the advantages of this bike. With just 229 pounds and a little bit more than 47 inches in wheelbase, you may count excellent maneuverability. Also, shorter riders will definitely like the seat height, which goes around 30 inches.
When it comes to the suspension setup, the 2020 Honda Grom is exactly what you would expect from a great street motorcycle. At the front, you may count on an inverted hydraulic fork, which ensures excellent control and road feel during the ride. On the other end, things are typical as well, as you may count on a single hydraulic rear shock, which ensures a comfortable ride, even on pawn roads. You may count on about four inches of travel on both ends. When it comes to brakes, you may count on hydraulic discs at both ends, dual pistons at the front and single-piston at the rear end. Anti-lock brakes are also available.
2020 Honda Grom Design
One of the reasons why this bike stands out is the styling. The first thing you’ll notice is an attractive shape, full of sharp lines and angles. Also, the company offers a wide choice when it comes to colors, so you may pick between Cherry Red, Blue Raspberry, Incredible Green, and Halloween Orange. Furthermore, you may count on LED lighting on both ends. Both headlight and taillight are great not just in terms of visibility, but also have a great impact on the overall visual appeal.
We particularly like the design of the instrument cluster, which is completely digital and multifunctional. It looks great but also shows plenty of information, including things like speedometer, odometer, tachometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, an indicator for low/high beam etc. Also, the bike is passenger ready.
2020 Honda Grom Pricing
The 2020 Honda Grom starts at 3.400 dollars, while models with ABS would cost you a couple of hundreds more. Also, you may count on a one-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, which can be extended with the well-known Honda Protection plan.
