It’s not that difficult to find a motorcycle that’s capable of managing fuel mileage of 75 miles per gallon or so. In fact, all you need to do is march into your local Kawasaki dealership and plunk down a few thousand bucks on a brand new Ninja 250. Right off the showroom floor, the littlest Ninja is capable of returning stellar fuel mileage while boasting a more-than-adequate top speed of just over 100 miles per hour. But what if you want even more?
EcoModder member TheyCallMeBryan lays out a few simple steps to increase the fuel mileage of a Kawasaki Ninja 250 by about 30 percent; enough to net you about 100 miles per gallon, he reckons. The list of modifications is short: a change to slightly taller gearing and new tires running high air pressure. Other than that, a light throttle wrist and being mindful of the speed limit is all that’s required. Click here for all the details.
