Or maybe this

In my last post I said that the Suzuki V-Strom DL 650 was the bike I wanted to get.

After doing a bit more research, I might actually swing for the Kawasaki Ninja 250. It's a weaker engine (650cc to 250cc), but it's more of a sport bike - which, I'll admit, I like - and the smaller engine does equate to better mileage: according to sources, the V-Strom gets an average of 54 mpg, the Ninja gets around 72 mpg; that is worth getting the Ninja over the V-Strom in this economy.

The real strong pull towards the Kawasaki? The price for a new one is about $2,000 less than a used Suzuki. I like that fact quite a bit.
