Fuel Efficient Motorcycles: Is there even such a thing?
The world has, over the past few years, witnessed a trend towards greater fuel efficiency in cars and other vehicles. Current political currents and the stabilization in the price per barrel of gasoline have somewhat dampened the underlying spirit; yet climate change and the need to preserve the environment remains at the forefront of most people’s minds.
Fuel Efficiency in Motorcycles
Fuel efficiency is, admittedly, not something that many people think about when it comes to motorcycles. After all, all motorcycles are rather frugal in their consumption of petrol, right? Wrong! Recent research indicates that far from being greener that cars, motorcycles actually consume more fuel than cars.
This runs against the intuitive wisdom that says, being smaller, motorcycles are supposed to sip through a liter of petrol at a rate that is appreciably smaller than that of other automobiles. Factors that drive this development include the fact that motorcycles are mainly used by thrill seekers, for whom fuel efficiency is hardly a consideration. There are alsoissues of aerodynamics, weight and engine size.
The most fuel efficient motorcycles
There are, however, still motorcycles out there that have clearly been designed with fuel efficiency in mind. If going green is at the forefront of your mind when purchasing a new bike, then the following bikes should be at the top of your considerations;
- Honda Grom
Motorcycle fuel efficiency does not get any better than with the rather frugal Honda Grom, which comes with an unbeatable fuel economy of 125 miles per gallon (53 kilometres per litre). If you are wondering how this is possible, you will find the answer in the 125cc engine.
The 2017 Honda Grom
The 2017 Honda Grom comes with an eye-catching array of features, including rad colours and aggressive bodywork. It also features LED lights, a tail section that is more prominent than in previous versions and a low mount muffler design.
This is clearly a bike that has been designed with fun in mind. Despite the fact that it has such a fuel efficient engine, the Grom still delivers on performance and practicability. The Grom is a bike that many will easily fall in love with!
- Motoped Cruzer
A Motoped is little more than a bicycle that has an engine, which makes it less surprising that it is capable of achieving fuel efficiencies of over 100 miles per gallon. The thing can, after all, actually be paddled like a normal bicycle.
The Motoped Cruizer comes with an engine displacement of only 49cc, an electric starter, LED Headlamps and much more. This is clearly a bike that is guaranteed to turn heads as you ride down the street and should appeal to the extremely environmentally conscious among us.
- Suzuki TU250X
With an MPG of 80, the Suzuki TU250X is, undoubtedly, another of the most fuel efficient motorcycles that can be found out there. It comes with a single cylinder, 249cc, four-stroke engine and was introduced in 1994 as a lightweight street bike. If you are a beginner, or are worried about keeping up with fluctuations in the prices of gasoline, then this is the bike that you should go for.
- Kawasaki Ninja 250R
At 77 miles per gallon, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R introduces fuel efficiency to sport bikes. The bike is made by Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki and is great for beginners. It comes with a 249cc engine, twin headlights, wide wheels, ABS and much more.
- Honda Rebel
The 2017 Honda Rebel is not only stylish, but also comes with a great fuel economy of around 78 Miles per Gallon. The Rebel has a 286cc liquid cooled single cylinder four stroke engine and has a six speed transmission.
