Gas guzzler Ninja 250?

Best suited for solo travel in urban and suburban areas...
There's where the Ninja 250R wins, hands down.

I have a 250R and an Eliminator 125. It took real work to get the Eliminator to a point where I could comfortably drive it at 55mph.

69mpg so far, and just put a new front fender on to try to tip the scale at 70!

78mpg @ 55mph. Smaller aluminum rear sprocket, windscreen, fork-mounted air deflectors, numerous lightweight fasteners, 35w HID headlight + LED lights... most of that wasn't to get more MPG, but just to give it the strength to cruise comfortably at highway speed!
