No doubt the Grom is popular, but that doesn't automatically mean that it's a great, or even a good 'value for the money'. One look at the sheer numbers of 'mod' threads on the Grom forum website pretty much says that most Grom owners wouldn't know what 'value for the money' is if it sat in their lap and called them mama. As someone once said, "Money doesn't come with instructions".
And in terms of popular opinion, I'd be willing to bet that most of today's motorcyclists would not even consider the Grom to be a true motorcycle by definition... it's just too small to have any practicality. You certainly wouldn't want to attempt to ride one from coast to coast. I couldn't even imagine riding one for a 200+ mile day trip (something I've done frequently on my CBR250R).
