Very interesting! Tough to justify when you can find 200-250cc dual sports for close to the same price or much cheaper (used) all day long, though...

Groms are cool! I was beside myself wanting one of the green Kawi 125s--until I actually rode one. I was on a 55mph arterial leading to a northern suburb of Des Moines. It was uphill and I was just able to run 55mph WOT. Then after spending a twitchy 10 minutes or so at the motorcycle range, I had to cross two lanes to get into a left turn only lane to make my way back to the dealership. It's pretty sad when you're on a motorcycle and fighting to get in front of a Prius. Thing is, I live in a rural area where the speed limit (if you can find a sign) is 40mph. Most of my riding is on highways and interstates. The "Grom Squad" in this area have their bikes hopped up so they'll do 70mph or so, but that's not something I would be willing to invest in. Seems like the stock bikes would be a great option in an urban environment.(y)
