Mythbusters tested to find out which pollutes more, a car or a bike. Too bad they didn't use the Honda CBR250R for their test bike. The best bike they had came back with 56 mpgUS so they put a giant streamliner fairing on it and got it up to 71. The CBR averages 71 on fuelly right off the showroom floor and has an O2 sensor so it would be cleaner than their best test bike. They put the emphasis on CO, HC, and NOx, disregarding the fact that the bikes used half the gas and put out half the CO2. In the end, they just told everybody to stick with their car. I hope one day they will try it again with our Honda.
