Honda Gives the Grom an Edgy Makeover for 2017

The division of Honda that focuses primarily on two-wheeled vehicles has started to reveal their 2017 models. They began the releases with an updated version of the popular Grom. The new model has received a comprehensive redesign that includes a sharper and more aggressive appearance, according to Honda.


According to Lee Edmunds, manager of motorcycle marketing communications at American Honda, the motorcycle has been a huge success since its introduction in 2016. He goes on to state, “This fun-loving motorcycle has been a big hit in a little package, single handedly establishing a thriving market for small-wheeled, small-displacement, big-personality road bikes that lend themselves to personalization.”



Sportrider notes that the Grom itself is seen as part minibike, but all motorcycle and manageable for full-sized adults. The new version is essentially just a cosmetic upgrade with an edgier appearance. This new appearance is due partly to an integrated fuel tank and side panels, modern stocked LED headlight layout, a sportier handlebar and many other features that help transition the bike as a great bike to zip around the city.
