when will bikes become mainstream commuters?
I don't understand why the bike manufacturers are not pushing advertising on getting people commuting with motorcycles. People think that 35mpg honda fits and toyota yaris' are amazing, but forget that even an F4i can get over 50mpg, let alone an EX500 or 250. Manufacturers should make full size bikes with 250-500cc for commuting, or push the scooter market further. When people realize all the benefits of a bike like easier parking, 60mpg, cheaper maintenance, no smog, and more, they will start buying a lot more of them.
