The Cult Classic Honda Grom Is Back For 2020
When the Honda Grom first arrived in the USA in 2014, no one could predict just how much of a success the little 125 would. Deemed too small for US roads, and far too impractical for American riders, something about this miniature motorcycle struck a chord with the American public. It became a cult classic – and now the Grom has become an important feature of the Honda line-up. It’s back for 2020, and here’s all you need to know about it.
Known overseas as the MSX125, short for Mini Street X-treme 125, the Honda Grom certainly is miniature in size but extreme in nature.
Powered by a SOHC, fuel-injected, four-stroke, air-cooled 124.9cc engine that’s capable of 9.7 horsepower and 8.0 lb-ft of torque, the Honda Grom might be small in stature but it is bucket loads of fun. With a smooth four-speed manual gearbox, light and nimble handling, snappy throttle response and excellent fuel efficiency—to the tune of 134 MPG—the Grom is the perfect vehicle for urban exploring,
For 2020, the Grom is available in Cherry Red, Blue Rasperry, Incredible Green, or Halloween Orange color choices for the standard trim. However, if you want ABS with your Grom, then you’re choice is limited to Cherry Red only.

2020 Honda Grom Features
125cc FUEL-INJECTED ENGINE
Nobody can match Honda’s reputation for engines, and even though the Grom may be compact, it’s a giant in terms of performance and reliability.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
At just 30 inches the Grom makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
The Grom features 220mm front and 190mm rear single disc brakes for excellent stopping power.
The Grom’s LED projector-style headlight not only looks great and is a major styling element, but it also provides superior illumination.
The Grom’s four-speed transmission gives you all the durability, control and efficiency of a conventional motorcycle.
Forget about big, bulky taillights—the Grom’s LED lamp is bright and clear.
LOOK THE PART
Sharp bodywork, a LED headlight and cowl, a low-mount muffler and sweet new colors keep the 2020 Grom one hot little bike.
MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS
Instrument display features speedometer, odometer, tachometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, and indicator for low/high beam.
Honda’s Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is available on the Grom, which helps you make confident stops under less-than-ideal conditions.
Who says being on a budget can’t be fun? With its 1.45-gallon fuel tank you can venture far and economically too.
Want to share the fun with a friend? No problem—the Grom makes it easy to bring a passenger along.
12-INCH 10-SPOKE WHEELS
Tough and strong, these cast wheels and wide tires are just what the urban rider needs.
INVERTED FORK SUSPENSION
Just like a top-of-the-line sportbike, the Grom features an inverted hydraulic fork front suspension for control and road feel.
SINGLE REAR SHOCK
Thanks to the Grom’s single hydraulic rear shock, you get a plush ride, even over choppy pavement.
