No, there will be plenty. Trust me. These are popping out so slow from Honda. Many of us will be lucky to get it before next year.

My dealer is actually RETURNING deposits because he does not believe he will be getting any for a long time.

Not this year. But he is a small dealer. When they tell Honda the response is, "We'll just sell them a CB250R then."

Honda does not get it. They are full on missing a huge opportunity with the GROM.

There are a lot of rumors going around. One is that ordering of Groms is blocked at this time. Another is that powerhouses will only get 3 per month. Normally when they sell a unit Honda ships them another unit right away. So we will see.

And I don't think they will just be selling them CBR250Rs instead. Especially since a good portion of us already own sportbikes and large displacement motorcycles.

MAYBE... (just speculating)
They want to see the US Market R&D for em. ie. What are the problems & how they can tweak it down the line.
Just using the Ruckus as a Historical Reference. In case you didn't know.
2003 The Zoomer/Ruckus was released.
The 1st batch had Crank Bearing, Valve & Breather Problems Oya the ECU got Tweaked a bit too.
2006 they confronted these issues... no more problems.

The dealer across the street from me has had a red one sitting in the show room for 3 weeks now with no takers. Came in the same day mine did and I couldn't believe they still had it as of Saturday. They are out there, people just aren't looking in the right places I guess. Or people here just don't want them. It is surprising how many motorcycle places I go with it and nobody there has ever even heard of it. They are missing out!

dealers are asking too much, In Thailand these are called the MSX-125 and they sell for $2,200 out the door, so here in the USA they sell for $2,999. There are no US tariffs on these MC and if shipping cost $250 each I see a $749 difference from Thailand prices, so HONDA or their dealers are making a KILLING at anything over $3,200. It's going to be a GOOD xmas for some of these dealers.

Dealer invoice on the Grom is $2,764 plus the $125 freight, which comes to $2889 just to get the unit to the dealer, so they are not making a "killing" at over $3,200.

Just found out that my dealer just got one in today and don't know when they will get another. There is 4 deposits down and I am the first on the list. Wanted red but black came in. Was told by my sales guy price should be around $3,600 otd now they're telling me $3,925 otd plus they were already joy riding it to see how fast it will go. Charging $250.00 assembly to uncrate and screw two mirrors on. That is 2 1/2 hours labor. Someone cheer me up... Please :-(

I wanted black but got stuck with red. ALMOST walked because I wanted black so much. I decided to take what I could get and I am glad I did. A Grom in the wrong color is WAY better than no Grom at all. I just ordered the black plastics for mine so eventually I will have exactly what I want.

Buy it.
