Considering my job, I tend to speak with most motorcycle dealers around here.

The Integra is on preorder at every single one, while the interest is the largest
for the 700X. IMHO, the Integra will never go the DN01 route. Considering
sales in Italy, it's among the most popular choices already.

It's way too early to make any real prediction. I was referring more so to the western world, if it ever comes here. Two years from now we will have a much better idea

They sold almost 1.900 of them in Italy until the end of June.
13th place overall.

NC700X is at the 20th place with ~1.300 units.

Well your right the 700cc doesn't get 70 mpg US. I have a NCX but it only has a 670cc engine and my last tank was 75.5 mpg US.
I don't care who believes me either! Bring your 250's or other choice and I'll prove it!

I rekn looking at your car (Pug 416i) you would have measured the economy out of interest at least. I mention you're car, because I had a Citroen C4 1.6 HDi for years from new. I travelled 95000km in it over 6 years, probably 80% of it's life till then sitting on 110-120kph on the cruise, and it averaged for the whole mileage 4.7L/100km.
I also remember sitting on a steady 85kph for about 150km (long story, stuck behind a road train heading to the mines up north........), and the fuel economy was LESS THAN 3L/100km in those conditions. This made the Citroen more economical at that speed, with 4 adults and 2 suitcases, than a small scooter with one rider.
I rekn the Integra might be the first bike to beat that economy without trying any special economy driving routines, but really, this bike strikes me as just a really well screwed together do-anything bike that uses hardly any fuel while riding around having fun. I know on my test ride the fuel needle didn't even move......

I sat on an Integra today and I really wish Honda would have brought it over to the US. Great riding position, the handlebar is at a perfect reach (touring stance and not low sporty stance like on the Tmax). May be next year?...

Does anybody think that the new Honda CTX700 is going to be "our Integra?" Being that it's mechanically the same, just looks more motorcyclish for Americans. Just curious.

I believe it. It's in a low state of tune, it's a low revving motor, and it is fuel injected.

I have two 250s, a KLX 250s and a Vespa GTS 300. The KLX gets 65-69 mpg, the Vespa 60-65 mpg. Not that impressive when you consider my '03 KLR 650 gets 60-65 mpg. Yes, the KLR is jetted perfectly, but always has hard bags on it and has the aerodynamics of a barn door. The Vespa is fuel injected.

Truth is 250s don't get that great of mileage.

BTW, I think the Integra is bitchin. I would very much like to have one if it makes it stateside.

Engine size and fuel economy are not directly related. I had an EX500 that I ran really hard and consistently got 60MPG. I replaced it with an SV650 that only got 45 MPG. My old FJ1100 and Venture 1200 both got around 45MPG, same as the SV650. My Aprilia 250 and Kymco 150 both get 75 MPG.

Getting 65-70 MPG out of a 700cc bike designed for good fuel economy does not surprise me in the least.
