We, um.... Raced it with 4Nine's 1978 CB125 S. I am sure that you watched the video before you have gotten to my drivel, so you already know the outcome, and as everyone expected, 2014 beats 1978. But what surprised me was actually how close they were. I have not gotten them on the scales or anything, but I imagine that the Grom is a little heavier than the CB125 S. That is of course just a wild guess.
I think that I am going to get lucky enough to get some seat time on El C's Grom, and some time on the Honda "Red Dragon" CB125 S, and see what exactly has changed in nearly 4 decades. Fingers crossed for that. I am going to be hard pressed to wrench the key out of El C's hand, but maybe, just maybe I can steal it for a day or so to really live with it.
And yes we know that we are not "technically" done with the break in period, so spare that comment. Also, the video was taken on private land on a paved stretch that ends in trees, so no humans, animals, or Groms were harmed in the filming of this video.
