Hello! I'm currently (in the next couple months) in the market for a new dual sport bike. I'm having some trouble sorting through the alphabet soup that is the moto world and could use some help picking a suitable dual sport. I have a few requirements in order of importance... 1.) Reliability, any bike that will go over 50,000 miles without a major rebuild is good. More is better! I also don't want to spend every weekend fixing something that broke. I don't drive a Land Rover for a reason (no offense), I don't want a bike that comes with issues from the factory. I don't mind maintenance as long as it's the regularly scheduled kind. Please don't turn this into a "who's bike is better" war. I know that pretty much everything out there has issues of some sort. I would just like to avoid big problems. 2.) Fuel economy. (the only reason this is in the thumper section) I'm looking for something that gets ~70ish MPG or better. I will be using the bike for the daily 50 mile commute as often as possible, so the more mpg the better. The higherr mileage it gets, the more i can get out on the weekends! I guess that probably rules out the 650's? 3.) Price. I would like to stay under $10,000. That rules out Ducati, but not much else. 4.) Aftermarket support. Bigger gas tank, racks, parts availability etc. I'm not really interested in buying used, so it would have to be current production. I have an iron butt, so comfort is relative. I don't ride hard, so a foot of suspension travel is unnecessary. In fact, I prefer to just putt around. But being able to maintain freeway speed on long trips is somewhat important. I'm not a racer at all, as long as the bike will get to the posted speed limit before next week, I'm happy! I would say that I would be 80% pavement 20% dirt. I would like that to be the other way, but I'm trying to be realistic. Maybe someday. With all that being said, is there a bike(s) out there that meet most(all) of those requirements? I saw an add for the new Honda 250 that is supposed to get 100mpg! I think it had a 'C' maybe an 'X' or an 'F' and some other letters in the name. What is the deal with all the letters anyway?!?!
