Harley-Davidson's Sportster 883 for instance, "American Iron" for under $7,000.00. Even BMW, Triumph and Moto Guzzi's made the list. It's not just Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha that have the bargain bikes anymore.

So where is the MPG rating for each bike?

This just looks like a list of the smallest engine in each category under the $7k limit from each vendor.

Kano said...

Anonymous-Sorry. I thought the list would be of some use to those thinking about buying an economy bike. It could help narrow down the search some. Following the link to the makers website should provide the MPG's you are looking for. Kano

Reemus said...

Good work Kano!

Having just bought what has turned out to be the thirstiest bike on earth, I'm now looking to off-it in favour of something a little greener. You've put together a really good starting point for research.

Kano said...

reemus -Thanks for your kind words! I hope you find something. I'm looking over the list myself and dreaming about my next bike and it's sure to come from somewhere on the list as gas mileage is of primary concern to me too.
