Honda has a bunch of cool new bikes hitting the road in 2014.  One in particular will end up in my stable though, the Honda Grom.  It reminds me of a Ducati Hypermotard / Monster that has been shrunken. “This is really a fun time for Honda fans, as we unveil these four incredibly cool all-new machines for 2014 that reach out to entirely different segments of the market,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “This introduction serves as a perfect example of what 2014 is going to be like for Honda, as we continue...

If the Honda Grom is too lowbrow or isn’t fast enough for you, check out BMW’s latest Scooter. The BMW C400X is the little brother to the C650 GT and C650 Sport scooters. The C400X has plenty of power for city and highway use and has some cool electronic bits and storage. The BMW C400X starts off with a new 350-cc single-cylinder engine with a single overhead cam and a balancing shaft. Single cylinder engines can often have vibrations and a thumping sensation, maybe this balancing shaft will smooth things out. Horsepower...

The Honda 150SS Racer is a new concept bike, not a Honda Grom with mods. The Honda 150SS Racer was unveiled, as a concept (for now), at the Bangkok Motor Show this year. From the looks of it, the engine is from a Honda CBR150R which is a much sportier beast than the Grom’s motor. It is half retro and half modern/futuristic. Some key features of yesterday include disc style wheels, solid brake rotors, and a round headlight. On the modern side of things there is a rear mounted gyroscopic camera, a clear race number holder, and a under-body...

Sure it looks like a green Honda Grom, but there are a few differences other than the color. First off there are two versions, one with automatic (Z125) and one with a four-speed manual transmission (Z125 Pro). Apparently the Z125 Pro version is the one coming to the United States. Yippee. Whether this is a youngsters first bike or a 40-somethings tenth bike it is sure to be loads of fun. Perfect for running down to the local store as a pit bike for the races. Like the Honda Grom, the engine...

For those of you that don’t know I am a big guy who happens to love scooters. Not sure where that all started. Possibly from my younger years when the fastest mode of transportation available to us were scooters. Well, one of my favorite scooters, the Honda GROM battery died with just 450 miles on the odometer. I didn’t want to deal with the dealership and warranty process so I...

The Kawasaki Ninja 250 is a great starter bike that lives somewhere between a Honda Grom and a bigger Ninja 600.  While riding on the freeway doesn't inspire a ton of confidence with just 250cc's it gets the job done without overwhelming the rider.  That doesn't mean that the Ninja 250 needs to look like a small underpowered sports...

Everyone has a cluttered drawer or two that are full of things that we need.  Most drawer organizers don't work because they are preformed and don't fit my gadgets.  Having customized draw organizers made can get expensive and don't allow for changes and adjustments after the fact. DrawerDecor has come up with a clever way of making...
