The Clutcher - and a Good Look at the 2016 Honda Grom's new look.
If you ever wondered how you would react if you woke up to find yourself in a cage, shackled to a cot and then forced to stunt a brand new Honda Grom through deadly obstacles, all while under the video surveillance of a mysterious, hot woman and her Grom gang, well, this is your chance.
This cute and cheesy Thai Honda Grom video set in a "world gone mad, (with the Grom)" gives us a good look at the Honda Grom's new look, as our hero pulls off some impressive stunting work which gains him admission him to a shadowy Grom gang, known as The Clutcher. Even he seems a bit confused by the whole experience but is ultimately swept up but the experience, winning the adoration of the mysterious hot woman and of course, getting to ride the new Grom.
As an after thought, I'm always amused by the "Professional Rider on a closed course, Do no attempt," disclaimers in promotional motorcycle videos. Are they saying, "don't do stoppies, jumps, burnouts and wheelies," or do they mean, "don't do stoppies, jumps, burnouts and wheelies, while avoiding deadly hazards like: laser beam grids, 16 ton weights falling from complete darkness, or while riding atop a narrow labyrinth over a bottomless pit?"
Maybe we'll never know.
