    On our 130 mile ride last weekend one of the guys on an RXP was running out of gas at ~80 miles while I still had 2 bars showing. He did make it to the fuel dock but just barely with zero bars showing. It is during those times that I'm really glad I have a Honda, and this hasn't been the first time.
    Agreed. I wouldn't be happy with the MPG shown on the new Kawi 250X. And admittedly our 15F isn't as fuel-efficient as the Honda F-12.

    But I'm *totally* happy to have one of each: a fuel efficient cruiser that's still nimble, and one musclecraft that won't put me in the poorhouse.

    Over here in the UK one of the new owners of the very limited Kawasaki 250Xs stated that it cost him $150 to initially fill the thing and within 4 days he had spent an additional $315 on fuel!!!!!!!

    Remind me never to purchase one of those!

    My Daughter's 15F and another friend's is getting almost exactly the same gas mileage as my F12X, but I have a "heavy hand" too.

    I have only heard great things about the fuel economy on the hondas, especially the non turbo. obviously the turbo when under boost is gonna guzzle a little.

    As far as new product realease and honda, they are very good at misleading and keeping it a mystery. I am an acura tech and have very close contact with a lot of relatively influential types at AHM and even they dont know anything. We have had some really funny stuff happen like specs released andthen the car arrives and its signifigantly different, or not getting any specifics on a car, and then bam it shows up on the lot, and were like umn, whats the sticker say its got, how much is it, etc. they keep it tight lipped unless they want you to know. But yeah those specs are out of thin air. Honda wants there stuff to hold up not just go fast too, and they feel they have environmental obligations.

    Count me in. I will take the 220HP NA instead. 65mph is plenty fast.

    Honda has not made a R-15X. What are you talking about? Maybe a F-15X? The R-15X would be GREAT.

    If there was a R15X, you would have already seen pictures of mine on here...

    Well I am glad to here that. That means you just kept someone else from making a mistake and buying a lesser quality ski.
