well its the same bike

BUT

Grom: MSRP USD $3200
MSX125: MSRP USD $2000

thats the only difference is they change the name and increase the price, dont fool yourself thinking the grom is worth the MSRP when they sell it for way cheaper everywhere else

didnt composimo import one over and its registered in the states?

import fees are kinda hit and miss, i own a imported 1964 grey market mercedes benz unimog, it got refereed and since the truck aint in any us database its registration fees are paid out by weight.

i dont remember the main cost to import, but i do remember the biggest headache was trying to get it refereed $/appointment etc after it got to the states

Same but there are few cosmetic differences from memory Front light on MSX 125 is projector style plus mini Toolkit is included under seat. Grom has red reflectors on rear license holder. Anything I have missed ?

I think every single post I have ever read from you complains about the 'MSRP' or something else about the bike's price or value - do you even own a Grom? Were you forced against your will to buy it maybe? Is that why you carry so much resentment?

Do you think a bike built in and for a Thailand market, that is imported to the USA should and would carry the same MSRP in US dollars as in Thailand? The perceived cost difference you constantly complain of is the cost of getting this Thia bike here for us and is very noticeable on the bottom line of something as inexpensive as a Grom. And we enjoy a very favorable tariff schedule in the US from Thialand...

I def can't complain about the Grom price differential of here vs. other countries. Apparently there's some countries that pay double (or more) of what we pay for certain motorcycles.

The cost comes from shipping it here, adding emmisions devices and certifying with Fed, Cali, and DOT standards. Creating marketing, parts support, training.

And the biggest of them all DEMAND and supply. I'm just glad were getting it.


Economics bro.

Just for reference. I live in Sweden and we have the European MSX here (some small differences from the Thai version) and we pay 4550$ for it. ?

First time I have seen anything about Pattaya, Thailand since I deployed there with the US Marines as part of Operation Cobra Gold in 1992. We worked at an air strip about 1/2 hour drive away. I'll always remember the open air kickboxing rings scattered around the town. 3 weeks in the Summer and it was HOT!!!
