Re: MPG - Ramblings
While I agree that the auto industry is slowly advancing their fuel efficiency, in general they are still pretty far from 50+ mpg, and as stated in previous post, motorcycles are more like high performance cars and giant pickup trucks, people drive them because they like them, not for fuel efficiency. If auto manufacturers wanted to produce a car that gets 50 or 60 mpg, they could do it.....Yes I have a 97 geo metro, my best highway mileage was 53, but for the most part people don't want a car that has almost no amenities, stick shift, runs on 3 tiny cylinders, and will do 70 mph all day on the flats...It's all about demand. As far as technology...If you have a KLT, you already have the best technology available on a motorcycle...Enjoy!
