I am glad i have my Ninja 250 right now, it gets between 60-75 mpg. I take it all across America, motorcycle sales are up while SUV sales are down...

I bought it about a month ago .. Will upgrade soon to a Katana 600 Suzuki before the year is over, still get 50-60mpg on that.. Anything is better than my Corvette right now, thats $2.85 a gallon for the premium and YES, i have to use the higher octane..

I’m just glad the weather finally cleared up so I can ride my scoot for a while.
