Great article. Thanks for posting.

“…………Andlike those miniature athletes, the Grom boasts the attitude of a pint-sizedperformer. It is part mini-bike, part motorcycle. It blends a smallish patented frame and 12-inch wheels with full-fledgedmotorcycle parts for an oddly appealing dwarfish style accented with a toughurban edge……….
………Honda has applied for four patents based on the innovative split structure tankcover and frame, proof of just how serious they are about this new global smallbike…………”


I wonder if the patents are going to make it difficult / impossible for other companies to produce a 12" wheeled motorcycle.

isn't the patent just for the frame design?
