Launch in India
While Honda has not revealed any details if the brand plans to launch the Grom in the Indian market, speculation in the past believe that the Grom 125 will come to India as patents for the model filed at the Indian Intellectual Property office. But looking at the Honda Navi which was a similar looking motorscooter that did not do well in India the brand may not decide to bring the Grom.
