    Looks nice. Think I might prefer the original though...almost seems like they're trying too hard with this one. After looking at the new front end, I definitely do like the headlight-area look of the old one better.

    I like that Grom. Sat on one on the showroom floor...I just about fit, although not as comfortably as with the TW.

    FI and the resultant high fuel mileage is a plus. The tiny tires and less capability are big drawbacks.

    The deal-buster is that I don't have room in my garage. Cripes, if I could afford another machine, there's a nice mid-00s TW for sale just down the road. For less than I sold mine; and it's got a luggage rack, too.

    ...man, I'm tempted. If he doesn't move it in a few weeks, I may try to cut a deal with him. I can justify it...selling and then buying, left me about $700 ahead, depending on his final price....

    Sorry to ramble off topic....

    Laws require such ridiculous fenders.

    Laws require such ridiculous fenders.

    The irony here, for me, is that I think the Kawasaki looks better than the new Honda. Before, I would have chosen the Honda (if judging solely on aesthetics).

    On a related note, if these three thousand dollar mini bikes can have flawless electronic fuel injection, there is ABSOLUTELY NO DAMN EXCUSE for the big four not to have it on EVERY model by now! I'm starting to get a little pissed with them for not doing this. NO EXCUSE!!!

    Akalogan, I think if you add helium to the rear tire on your TW your 'air time' will increase dramatically without having to purchase a new Grom.......maybe?
