Honda Grom or many calls as the latest generation of Honda Z-Series is often called “Honda Monkey” became one of the successful models. As proof, until now Grom called Honda MSX125 in some countries still sells.

Honda will add another variant through two concepts that will appear at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015, the end of October. Two concepts that take the genre of scrambler with a tire of semi hoe. This change makes Grom increasingly looks fierce.

There has been no detailed explanation about the two concepts of this motorcycle. Honda still providespictures, including details of both the concepts of this bike.

The first model is quite masculine, like a scrambler motorcycle in general. High handlebars, like Honda Z-Series at the beginning of the production of so-called “Monkey”.

While the second model given frills “50”, with the same look-alike scrambler, but more classic looks with a rearview appearance that blends with the end of the handlebar, and a windshield with numbers.

Wait for the full details in a special review of motorcycles at Tokyo Motor Show, shortly.

    I LOVE the wire-spoke rims on it – something which was always so classy about the CUB series & the ’82 C70 PASSPORT that I ran I my 20’s, or the ’69 CB100 which I crossed with a ’70 SL100, when I was 16yrs-old – both 17″ rear rims & tires laced to alternate hubs, was a fantastic lil’ CBxSL definitely not a CL though. Carrying that forward I’ve been putting wire spokes on everything else, my lil’ GRRRL’z “KZ440LOL” and my “CB900K0 Bol Bomber” – what I’ve been looking for however, is you see my kid she’s had a Metro 50 + the Yam 125 Vino that I got for her Smother at the same time (by this point, my EX – but I got her a bike anyway and lo & behold it made the KID ride better, not simply ’cause “when the cat’s away the mice will play” but also from sheer embarrassment of her Smother the high-school teacher slash guidance counsellor scooting along after her, wearing the same hair-dye & fashion, shouting “We look like SISTERS……!” Yeah -my Kid she got books from the Library, bought her own copy of “Proficient Motorcycling” – One day I thought I’d help her with her math homework, looked like graphing functions with limits & calculus etc – NO – she was reading up on taking the perfect line through an S-curve Chicane. And it shows through not only in her riding, but in her driving a car once she began two years afterwards. A better driver more aggressive & quick than most young dudes her age only it’s SMOOTH and done CORRECTLY. So of course, we’ve gotta get her only the AHRMA circuit or Bol D’Or classics, on either the CB900K0 Bol Bomber OR the VF Sabre/Magna belt-drive replica of CZ Type 860 that I wanna whip up. A belt-drive version of VF1100S/VF1100C with 3.50×16″ Super-Akront & 4.25×18″ Akront alloy wire-spoke rims – in other words a VF1000F or VF1000R only with more power and at a lighter weight – plus high performance wire-spoke rims. Also been giving serious thought to a GL1200 Goldwing replica of the Swiss “DLF-1000″ from the ’76 Bol D’Or – got a TON of interesting wire-spoke alloy rims collected for my projects, in both 16″ 17″ & 18″ sizes all very WIDE for modern sport-touring radials etc. One PROBLEM though: is in finding wire-spoked rims appropriate for the aforementioned SCOOTERS!!! Saw some vintage Borrani automotive wheel rims in 3.00×12” – seems IDEAL for a scooter, at the time there were only the two of ’em for sale so it’s almost FATED ha-ha. But a very off-set conical or one-sided drilling/lacing pattern and at an odd spoke count as well – so the hubs themselves would have to be CUSTOM. Which I suppose suits these disc-brake CVT final-drive bike after all. Being that the classic drum brake and solid disc brake hubs probably wouldn’t make the conversion any easier, ergo custom one-off modern wheel hubs should be the approach to take. But that’s a lot of $$$$ you see, and despite all of what I’ve described, MY projects are low budget. SO – what all I’m getting at, is if there’s gonna be a mainstream mass-marketed “SCRAMBLER-GROM” (Grombler?) with spare rims kicking around out there – Provided they don’t become over-priced B.S. that’s cheaper to build from scratch, ala the Duck/Ducati Sport-Classic SC1000 & GT1000 rims? Then yeah – I’d hold out hope that these rims *COULD* be adapted to the Yamaha Vino 125 for instance. ‘Cause right about now, the dirt-bike world seems to offer 1.85×12″ WM2 rims when what’s needed here are 3.00″ or better still 3.50″ wide alloy rims. But in 12″ not the 16″ which I’ve already got literally a dozen of, or the 15″ like Akront used to make – I’m talking about proper SCOOTER sized rims here. And the GOMBLER seems to be pointing the way!
