I had an Accord in 99. Had more trouble with that car than I did with any American vehicle I owned. It also handled like complete shyt in the snow. So if you personally think he's right, that's ok with me.

You can't go wrong with a Ninja 250, which I currently own. Over 60 MPG and yet it can do 0-60 in 5.75 seconds. That will blow the socks off of both the Prius drivers and the Mustang GTs out there.

Default Re: Hyosung GT250R - American vs Japanese product

The problem, as I see it anyway, is this: the American manufacturers aren't building what I want. I want a small car that gets reasonable gas mileage and isn't built like a piece of crap and stuffed full of cheap materials and workmanship. I want a fast, fun, good handling motorcycle that doesn't look f**king stupid and have ape-hangers and chrome all over it.



Buells are getting close to deserving a look, and if I ever want a full sized truck I will definitely buy American. If the manufacturers put the same effort into building economical cars as they do building gas-hogs, maybe they would earn back some customers.

Default You have lost your mind...

Where the hell am I supposed to get that? I can't even find it on any of the Kawasaki websites; not Japan, not Australia, nowhere.



I don't think they've been built since the mid-90s. I wish I could get one, they sound like fun.

If only the world were as simple as your mind. Ignorance hurts.

"I can't believe how little people know, yet how eager they are to post their crumbs of know-nothing-ness."



I thought that was the point of this forum.



"The Ninja's CLAIMED weight is 305. In reality, with a full tank of gas, it weighs in at about 350 (I weighed my race-prepped bike at 345). The GT is probably about 380-390 wet."



So you do have access to a scale?!?!?!?!
