Civics Lesson - '02 Honda Civic LX

According to Cycle World (my favorite cycle magazine) the Ninja is 356lb dry, got 53mpg in their tests, 25.5 hp, and 13.5 ft-lb torque. The Honda is 337lb, 57mpg, 23.7 hp, and 12.7 ft-lb torque. They also say the Ninja needs more maintenance, for what it's worth.

I'd still get a Ninja, albeit used, since the price is so much lower vs a new Honda. But who knows how much the mpg could be improved with mods :P

Hey Rooster, gas went up 15 cents today, the climb begins. The 40mpg i quoted was probably max. Before the mods, I think I struggled to get into the 30's. I was originally thinking of a used Ninja, until I found out about the Honda. Maybe by the time I purchase I can get a used CBR. I do hate buying anything new.
