Honda Grom Scrambler concepts unveiled ahead of Tokyo debut
Honda’s two wheeler stall at Tokyo Motor Show 2015 will have many attention grabbers, not the least of which are the Honda Grom Scambler concept twins. Based on the diminutive Grom 50 mini motorcycle, the concepts demonstrate that great things do come in small packages.
The Grom Scrambler Concept One (silver bike) is full of retro classic appeal, thanks to a circular headlamp, a slender fuel tank, chorme front fender, off-road tyres, rugged side bodywork and a seat with stopper. The Concept One is likely to progress towards limited production.
The Grom Scrambler Concept Two (Green bike) is a modern interpretation of classic scrambler and has no visual connection whatsoever with the bike it’s based on. The concept sports a futuristic LED circular headlamp, off-road tyres, silver fender, golden telescopic fork, a matte-green finished fueltank which sits on top of silver air-intake pods, a contrasting brown leather saddle and a sophisticated side cowl.
Honda has not revealed much about these two concepts. The regular Grom motorcycle is powered by a 125 cc single-cylinder air-cooled 4-stroke engine which is mated to a four-speed transmission. The fuel injected motor is capable of producing around 9 PS. The motorcycle’s USP is its extremely nimble and easy to ride character.
