Bullets should vibrate, so the engineers made sure the UCE did.

Harley's should vibrate, so the Buell Blast (the Harley entry model) did.

Hondas, well, sewing machine.  My Civic is still pretty smooth with 190k on the clock and a used Nighthawk 750 i test rode 10 years ago ran so smooth I could barely tell it was running.

I'm sure that 250 is SUPER smooth and I thought about buying that bike.  That and the Ninja 250 are both nice little bikes with awesome motors and great mileage, but not too much soul.

Was I the only one who winced when he talked about a scooter and a Bullet in the same breath?  Ouch........like comparing a minivan and a Willys!

Great marketing for our favorite bike though :)

was just reading up on the Honda 250 cbr single....it probably handles fantastic and the gas mileage will be phenomenal...

You would think so but it's not - according to their own website it's about 74mpg, UK gallon. The G5/C5 are excellent in this area though the latest BMW650 may ultimately outdo them returning 85mpg in tests with twice the power.
