    unless you are doing 150 mph, the differences would be nearly impossible to tell

    If you really want to know which one is more aerodynamic, Honda should have the drag coefficients on file somewhere. Email Honda support and they shouuld be able to dig up the figures somewhere.

    I would look at curb weight. The aerodynamic differences would pale in comparison to a small reduction in hp to weight ratio.
