Honda 2022 Grom

HONDA America has updated some of the range for 2021 (or 2022 depending on what dating system you use for new motorcycles), so let’s have a quick look at what’s on offer!

Honda X-ADV first impressions review

New 2021 Honda X-ADV Walkaround | First Look to the New Honda X-ADV 2021 |

First up, the Honda CB1000R Black Edition is updated for 2021, available from $12,999 MSRP and blacked out with a sleek new colourway of, get this, all black everything.

Plus new digital display, seat cowl and quick shifter - plus under-seat USB, and little touches over the bike to give it the Black Edition look.

Next is the ADV-150 scooter, 2022 trim, available from $4,299 MSRP.

You’ll find the 149cc motor with long-travel suspension, spacious under-seat storage, two-position windscreen and everything you’d need for a comfortable commute (and jaunt on the backroads on the way back home). The 2021 model is in Candy Rose Red, too!

The Honda Grom. 2022 trim, 2022 trim, available from $3,399 MSRP. An eternal legend, with many riders reporting back that it’s the most fun they’ve had on two wheels, the 2022 Honda Grom has a new engine, 5-speed gearbox and higher 10:1 compression ratio for even for fun packed in a small box (it’s like a 10:1 fun compression ratio).

It’s got a thicker, flatter seat for greater comfort, and is noted as good for taller riders - here’s to hoping my 6’3” frame will fit! Plus the new body panels, easy to remove and therefore easy to replace and customise - adventure grom, anyone?

Last up, the NC750X, in the 2021 trim, is available from $8,199 MSRP. It’s the classic versatile tourer-cross-adventure motorcycle, Honda has adjusted and optimised a few bits: lower seat height by 30mm, lighter weight, larger integrated storage area (the ‘tank’ space), and a new frame. 

Other big updates are increases to the overall power, throttle by wire, rider modes, choice of auto-DCT or manual 6-speed transmission, and new instruments. It’s the classic versatile machine to cover all bases. 

Looking on the American Honda ‘powersports’ site, nestled in the scooters section I found an old heart-throb of mine, the Honda Zoomer (or Ruckus). Never as much as sat on one, but I’d still love a Honda Ruckus.

Probably wouldn’t fit one either, but the fact you can buy them new in America has me a bit jealous.
