Just picked up a Kawasaki KSR, the reason why the MSX exists! Honda wanted to compete against the KSR in Thailand so out comes the Grom for you guys.
Here's some photo's I have of both of my bikes.

The KSR is a clutchless system. All the way down is neutral. There is a reserve fuel tank in the KSR which has the capacity of almost 2 gallons.. The KSR also has a much softer seat and feels lighter. The KSR pretty much a 1 seater, but I have seen 3 riders on one before. The KSR is also a 110cc. The MSX overall has a more solid build quality, so don't worry as you are not missing out on much.

Thanks. Are you going to bring both bikes back when you return to the US?

I will only be bringing parts from the MSX over, maybe a couple sets of white fairings, clear turn signals, and projector headlights. I'm too lazy to deal with customs, registrations, and taxes when it comes to importing things. It would be a lot nicer to start new and learn from the mistakes I've made with the 1st one. Such as don't use a towel on the gauge cluster, because the plastic is softer than a helmet's visor. Also don't allow people to put tire shine and greasy gunk all over your brakes. Be careful not to scratch the black paint when putting the seat back on. And the rear fender gets easily messed up from taking it off and putting it back on. Plus someone put a scratch on my headlight lens as well. So with all that and being some what of a perfectionist, I want to start again!

Listen up people. Sounds like some good advise to me learned from first hand experience. Thanks CA
