Seen a Honda Grom today

Went into my local honda dealer today to check out all the new motorcycle models they brought in. They had a bunch if the new models but the one that caught my eye was the Grom. I know I would look like a bear riding a tricycle on that thing but something about it keeps me thinking about it. So, who's risen one? Thoughts?

I test rode one and was very disappointed. I was wanting to try to trade the Cb500F for a Grom and a used dirt bike or something, but after riding it realized its not at all practical unless you live in a big compact city and will never need to go more that 40 mph. 0-60 is like 15 seconds so its really not even hooligan fun. I'd go with a DRZ or something, but they are sharp looking.

450's can grab around 60hp pretty easy.
