    I've been thinking about buying a $1000 fuel economy bike for my around town riding. I currently own a 02 1200s bandit that I don't plan on selling. If I got something like a used ninja 250 for the fuel economy would I have any fun riding it or would it be a waste of my time?

    If it's just for commuting does it need to be fun? The economy should make it worth doing alone, and you've got the 1200 for the fun.

    I love commuting on my 250 even though it's a piss weak piece of shit.. I pay $10/week compared to $50+/wk when I was driving. The $40+/wk savings more than makes up for the lack of fun thanks to the beers it buys me each friday night after work :rofl:

    sen, so the car you drive gets um... 12mpg? less?


    the 250 is slow in a straight line, but it is nice that you can wind it out in front of a cop without getting arrested or even ticketed... it also turns very quickly, even if the suspension is a bit cheap.
