    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?...

    It would make sense.

    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.
