Yup, rethought about it and I'm sticking with the Grom.


Just learned Ď22 Gromís have been pushed to August or September for delivery, so I decided to not lose this season. Iíll sell it when the Grom comes in. Or trade it in. Or keep it, I still have a while to decide :)


Paid more than I wanted, but it wasnít as awful as I thought it would be.

I got a text earlier in the week saying my Grom wouldnít be shipped until September 26th and after some reflection decided I was pissed off enough at Honda that they are delivering units all over the coasts of the country to the point Arizona, California, New York, Florida, etc. were literally having 5 or 6 units sitting in showrooms and people were buying off the street but none in the Midwest for those that have been patiently waiting 5 months for their preorders with no end in sight that I cancelled my order.

Iím a lifelong Honda guy, a huge fan of their product and bought 9 or 10 new Hondaís over the past 10 years or so and if this is their new way of doing business Iím out. I called a customer relations after the Trail 125 group said theyíd run a dealer list that had available units for you which they said they would and never did and brought up the coast delivery thing and was told yup, thatís what they are doing.

Annoying to say the least.

Iíll probably eventually get one but on my terms, not theirs. Until then, Mr. Monkey does the trick just fine.

Wow, that's ridiculous. I'm guessing they're so hard up to make their profit margins they don't want to transport inland?

Or the coast is a hotter market and they can charge a premium for them

True I have the first year Z125. But on a side note they did just upgrade the klr650 I think 3rd or 4th time since the 80s!

Wanna hear something even shittier? Woke up this morning finally to an email from Honda telling me there are two Groms at dealers here in Minnesota, Hondatown and a place near Fargo. I called Hondatown during lunch who said nope, don't have one, sorry. I then called the other place who said yup, got one sitting here and it's an SP that I'll sell under MSRP with no additional fees.

YOU'RE FUCKING KIDDING ME, HONDA.

Emailed someone I know off a Grom forum who had one on order locally and didn't get it either, he cancelled his preorder, bought it and is picking it up tomorrow.

Sigh.

The white/red/blue version is known as the SP because it's got specially colored wheels, brakes and forks plus the graphics.
