The Grom's that come my way are not Road Bikes......
They are made for lane splitting in Heavy Traffic and they are called: MSX125's. Honda can't make these fast enough and people by the droves are exchanging the CBR for these little creations!
Brakes: As MotoMike said, the rear brakes have to bead in before they will lock up, and believe me they will! The Issue is the front brakes and an owner need not change the calipers, but a new disc and Pads are mandatory!
This will then lend itself to another issue......... Although they utilize USD Forks Honda decided to use crappy springs, ATF Oil and crappy Rods, as well as only provide rebound valves.........that's right boys and girls, fix the brakes up front and she dives faster than a trident submarine!
Fortunately Ohlin's has answered the call for front kit drop ins! Yeah! With Better Rods, Springs and Compression and rebound valves for superior dampening. Synthtic #20
Oil is also incorporated to make this machine a much better ride.
This is what's called "Under bones" Not quite a scooter, and not quite a motorcycle......Again, its for meandering through heavy traffic and lane splitting, which it does exceptionally well. Other than running to the store for Milk and Cookies. It's not a road bike.......unless of course your a short, light Pilipino man coming in at 55 kilos. Petit women favor this bike over men. Can you see our wife dropping off the kid at school? I see it all the time!
