Now officially called the ‘MSX125 Grom’ the pocket-sized funster gets a new Euro5-compliant but still air-cooled 125cc motor, while the gearbox is now five speed, rather than four.
Top speed remains about the same (58mph) but with a better spread between each gear. As you may have already guessed, power remains unchanged, however the internal updates have made everything that bit smoother running, just like the new CBF125, so it can now do over 150mpg!
The biggest change is arguably the styling, with a big refresh of the bodywork with a bit of neo-retro influence thrown in. Interestingly the refresh has ushered in easily-removable body panels that can be removed with just six bolts.
Nestled in the bodywork is a revised digital LCD dash that now includes a rev-counter and gear indicator, although the chassis is unchanged.
It looks like the panels are quick release now, so that is probably the reason for those circles.At first I was like WTF! But it's already growing on me. I just don't understand why they felt the need to circle the body panel mounting bolts. So freaking odd. I'm torn about the extra gear since it's not taller than what's in the 4-speed.
I was about to post the same thing. Looks like it has an oil filter now.Hopefully ABS can be disabled for “off road” use. I know Euro 5 mandates it for the road.
I also see an oil filter port. No more oil spinner!
Exactly what I was thinking. Perhaps the goal was a retro-redesign, hearkening back to the year 2014....I kind of have mixed feelings about the looks. In some ways it reminds me of the OG Grom...
Same. I think it looks great, and I like the new dash too. It's also awesome how they added a bigger fuel tank.I'm hoping the 2021 will allow for some nice upgrading opportunities for those of us with the OG grom.
No way it’s lighter with an extra gear and additional emissions BS.I talk to this guy in person from time to time. He loves all things Honda. According to his info, the 2021 Grom weighs 2 pounds less, has a 38t rear sprocket, makes less torque, and has ABS standard. Not sure I care for the ABS myself. He shows more photos too I believe.
