RELATED: Why Is the Tiny Honda Grom so Popular?

If you want a mini bike that looks like a proper sportbike, then the 2022 Honda Grom is the way to go. Introduced in 2014, the Honda Grom offers riders good ergonomics and a zippy personality that makes riding fun at any speed – even if you’re only going 25 mph. The folks at Cycle World were able to get the Grom up to 59 mph, which is impressive considering the bike is powered by a tiny 125cc engine. That engine produces 9.7 hp and 7.7 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a new-for-2022 five-speed transmission.

If those power figures don’t sway you, maybe the Grom’s fuel economy will. According to Honda, this tiny bike should be able to get up to 155 mpg, which is good considering its fuel tank only holds 1.6 gallons of gas. That will at least equate to a lot of cost savings when driving around town, but the bike itself won’t break the bank either. The 2022 Grom is currently priced at $3,399, which is far cheaper than any larger sportbike that it closely resembles.

The Honda Super Cub was introduced back in 1958. Thin in 2017, the Japanese brand celebrated selling a remarkable 100 million units of this Honda miniMOTO worldwide. In fact, the Super Cub is the most popular vehicle ever produced globally. Given its retro styling and fun personality, it’s easy to see why. Over the years, the Super Cub has gone through many changes since the first Super Cub C100 that rolled off the production line back in the 50s. But the 2021 model still carries the same spirit as the original version.

Powering the Super Cub C125 is an air-cooled, single-cylinder 125cc engine that produces 9.1 hp and 7.7 lb-ft of torque. That setup is mated to a four-speed transmission. That transmission is one of the Super Cub’s main highlights as it doesn’t use a clutch lever. This means that literally anyone can ride. Couple its easy-to-use functionality with its fun-to-drive riding characteristics. We wouldn’t be surprised if Honda sold 100 million more in the next decade or two.
