When a motorcycle can serve the dual purpose of bringing new riders into motorcycling and making veteran riders smile from ear to ear, you know you have a model that will maintain its beloved nature year after year. And such is the Honda Grom. Originally introduced in 2014, this little 125cc bike brought smiles to many of the editors’ faces with the moto shenanigans that it invites. With its unintimidating, approachable power and overall small-bike nimbleness, the Grom continues to be a great around-town runner.
The 2020 Grom’s base MSRP is $3,399 and is contested by the Kawasaki Z125 PRO’s $3,199. Both in engine displacement, approachability, and price, these two can be considered neck and neck.
No major changes for 2020. You can continue to choose from either the standard or ABS forms. This upgrade to the rider-aid-equipped version only adds $200 to the standard’s MSRP, though it will cost you a few colors to choose from. The ABS version is only available in Cherry Red whereas the standard is available in Cherry Red, Blue Raspberry, Halloween Orange, and Incredible Green.
