Honda has updated the MSX125 Grom for 2023, expected to go on sale in European markets later this year or early next year. The “pocket-sized funster” as Honda likes to describe it, has already been listed on most European market websites, which means you gotta check with your local dealer for pricing and availability information.
What’s new for 2023? Well, not a whole lot, really, except that you get a couple of new colors: Splendid Blue and Matt Dim Gray Metallic, with the latter featuring gold wheels and ‘Big Logo’ decals. The third color option is gonna be Gayety Red.
The rest of the things are gonna remain the same, of course. These would include an LCD instrument display; 12-inch cast aluminium wheels wrapped with wide tyres (120/70 front and 130/70 rear); 31 mm USD front fork featuring pistons with greater pressure-bearing area offering improved damping feel throughout the stroke; a low 761 mm seat height, and front & rear disc brakes.
The Honda MSX125 Grom continues to be powered by a 125 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with 7.4 kW (10 metric hp) at 7,250 rpm and 11.1 Nm (8.2 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm, paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
