The Legendary Honda Grom Gets A Redesign For 2022
The Honda Grom has cemented itself as one of the smartest and most innovative small-capacity Honda motorcycles ever made. It’s a pint-sized urban run-around from the Japanese manufacturer that has taken the world by storm. An all-new Grom joins the 2021 Honda line-up—despite being badged up as a 2022 model—with a number of exciting updates over the previous generation.
The latest model draws power from a 123.9 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces a modest 9.7 horsepower and 7.7 lb-ft of torque. It’s a revision from the last version, with a smaller displacement, a smaller bore, and a longer stroke, but a higher power output. Also new for 2021 (or 2022, depending on who’s counting) is the addition of a fifth gear.
Other notable upgrades include the Grom’s fancy new bodywork, which gives it a more modern look. Also new for 2022 is an upgraded fuel injection system, a larger fuel tank, the addition of new sophisticated instrumentation, a thicker and fatter seat, and optional ABS. All in, the Grom is a smart and economical machine that might be small in displacement, but it certainly is big in fun.
The new Grom is available in three color options: Matte Black Metallic, Queen Bee Yellow, and Pearl White. However, the ABS model is available exclusively in Candy Blue.
The 2022 Honda Grom starts from $3,399 USD / $3,899 CAD.

2022 Honda Grom Features
For 2022, the Grom gets a new engine with higher compression. 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.
At just 30 inches the Grom makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights. Plus, the new seat is flatter and features thick padding so it’s more comfortable, especially for taller riders.
The Grom features 220mm front and 190mm rear single disc brakes for excellent stopping power.
Part of the fun of owning and riding a Grom is the way it looks. So for 2022 we’ve given the Grom some tasty new bodywork. Plus, it’s easy to remove if you want to customize it even further. In addition, the engine, exhaust, wheels and swingarm are all blacked out for an edgy look.
The Grom’s LED projector-style headlight not only looks great and is a major styling element, but it also provides superior illumination.
New for 2022, the Grom now features a five-speed transmission. You still get all the durability, control and efficiency of a conventional motorcycle, but the extra gear gives you more choice, and increases top speed for highway cruising.
Forget about big, bulky taillights—the Grom’s LED lamp is bright and clear.
MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS
With some new functions this year, the instrument display features speedometer, odometer, tachometer, gear position indicator, 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.
SPECIAL “SP” COLOR VERSION
While the Grom is easy to customize, we’ve already customized one for you. Check out the Pearl White option, with special gold-finished fork, wheels, and brake calipers, a yellow shock spring, and cool red/white/blue graphics.
Who says being on a budget can’t be fun? With its 1.6-gallon fuel tank (bigger for 2022) 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.
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.
