Bike fuel economy is a small part of the cost of ownership, running lean may gain a few mpg or km/l but engine repair is way more expensive.

Not even sure the Nx650 ever came to the states, I think the 250 did for just a few year.

change to the NX650 after having a XR250R 2001.

The XR250R is enduro . the road used just with mixed tires, long trasmision .

The geometry was inappropriate . to go 120km/h, 74 MPH (permitted maximum speed ) worked many revolutions, and lacked a little power. not to damage the engine did not exceed 100 km/h, 62 MPH.

with the NX650 works well, and you have a little extra power .
A 400 or 500cc motorbike think would serve me , but before buying I thought that I would stay small.

klr650 is a great bike that fits all , as the NX650 . A motorcycle with larger engine usually heavier , not suitable for mountain trails and more tiring to use .

I hope not to destroy the engine , I do not want to open it again.
