Aussie Govt has killed off the Grom…
New legislation coming in to effect in Nov 2021 requires new bikes under 125cc to feature combined or 2-Channel ABS and bikes over 126cc to feature 2-channel ABS
Note: All bikes that are produced/sold prior to November 2021 are and will always be road legal. This is not retrospective and only affects supply of brand new bikes going forward beyond the November deadline. Does not apply to pre-owned/used bikes.
Honda Australia have confirmed the Grom will not be made available with 2-channel ABS (only single channel) so now is your last chance to order one, with deliveries due in September and October 2021
Other models affected include:
PCX150 (Single channel)
The XR190CT will continue to be available but only as an off-road/non-ADR variant.
We are hopeful Honda will look to introduce 2-channel ABS to these models in the future so they may return to the Aussie market.
