Returning models include CRF trail bikes, #pcx150 scooter
Jun 9, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif. -- Honda's first two-wheel announcement of the 2017 powersports model year is headlined by the popular #grom, which gets a comprehensive redesign for a sharper, more aggressive look. In addition, #honda announces a number of returning models for 2017, including the practical #pcx150 scooter and the CRF family of trail bikes.
"We're excited to refresh the #grom with an assertive new look for 2017," said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American #honda. "Since its 2014 introduction, this fun-loving motorcycle has been a big hit in a little package, singlehandedly establishing a thriving market for small-wheeled, small-displacement, big-personality road bikes that lend themselves to personalization. Now, the Grom's styling is even more exciting without losing any of the original's fun appeal."
Part minibike, all motorcycle, the #grom has been a resounding success from the start, with a package that's manageable yet comfortable for full-sized adults. Though its wheels are only 12 inches, the bike has full-size features like a sturdy steel frame, a 31mm inverted fork, mono-shock rear suspension, hydraulic disc brakes and a 125cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine. Now the #grom gets an edgier look, thanks to an integrated fuel tank and side panels, along with a modern, stacked LED headlight layout. Add a new flip-key, sportier handlebar, under-slung exhaust, upswept tail unit and a higher passenger seat, and you've got a #grom that's as fun as ever but with a daring new look.

Those seeking a practical, versatile scooter with a simple-to-use automatic transmission and room for a passenger need look no further than the #pcx150, which is available in two new colors for 2017: Pearl White and Dark Pearl Blue. The 150cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine works great for urban commuting but is also freeway-legal for longer jaunts, while the fuel efficiency and 2.1 gallon fuel tank help make gas-station stops a rare occurrence. The package is rounded out with a bold design topped off by dual LED headlights.

Lightweight and reliable, the #crf230f is the ideal off-road motorcycle for young adults or larger teens looking to spend more time twisting the throttle and less time spinning the wrenches.
