    The difference between the kawi naked 650 and 1000 is 40-45 and 30-35. Not sure what it is for other brands.

    I usually get on the lower end of MPGs for mine... But I like to accelerate in a hurry... when I deem it safe of course ;)

    That's one of the fun parts of motorcycles! But even then, 30mpg really isn't really that bad...that's still better than my old Cobalt! And that didn't even have 100 hp and was still considered a sports car by the insurance company...

    Passed someone on a harley trike today on the old seward. And had a dream last night that I was riding my bike. This warm weather is making me itch for some two wheel action!
