2014 Honda MSX125/Grom Colors RevealedThu, 23 Jan 2014 00:00:00 -0800
Honda revealed the 2014 version of the MSX125 for Europe, introducing a new blue option, color-matching tail section and headlight side cover and various gold-colored components. We should expect to see similar color updates for the U.S. market where the bike will be considered the 2015 Honda Grom.
Entering its second year of production, the MSX125 is already considered a hit for Honda. European consumers have scooped up more than 3,000 units of the MSX125 since its introduction last May, making it one of the continent’s best-selling 125cc models.
The new Candy Pisces Blue color joins the returning Asteroid Black Metallic, Pearl Himalayas White and Pearl Valentine Red options. Each option has a matching tail section, which was black for all colors last year. The boomerang-shaped covers on either side of the headlight are also color-matched instead of silver on last year’s models. Also new are the gold wheels, swingarm pivot bolt and front brake calipers, which now match the gold fork tubes.
Otherwise, the 2014 MSX125 remains identical to last year’s edition, with the same proven 125cc Single based on the engine that has powered the Wave 125i to sales of 930,000 units worldwide over the last decade. Other features include a four-speed transmission, light 224-pound claimed curb weight, 1.45-gallon fuel tank and a claimed fuel economy of 155 mpg.
