2006 Yamaha FJR — I reliably get 48 mpg unless I'm riding around town all the time, and then it drops a lot. Everywhere else, somewhere between 45-50 mpg.

'03 Sprint ST

40 around town
47 in the twisties
50 or so on boring straight state highways (60-70mph)

37 has been the worst, mostly second gear flogging on back roads
53 the very best

40s sound about right to me. But 53-58 mpg sounds incredible. Especially for a Honda

Two years since the last post here!!!!!!!!!!

A month ago I gassed up in Gunnison, CO and traveled through Lake City and on to Pagosa Springs, CO. Then the next morning I went from PS through Durango, CO and to Cortez, CO. The elevation was probably never under 5,000 feet anywhere I rode on that tank of gas. But still, I would never have believed anyone that told me their FJR1300 got that mileage. I wasn't SPORT riding but wasn't being passed by anyone else either. I ended up gassing up at 280 miles and the tank went on reserve at 270 miles!!!!!!!!!

55.9 MPG

On my latest 3,100 mile trip that ended three days ago I took the 2016 Bandit 1250, I only got under 50 mpg twice! When traveling through Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana I got the best mileage. Around 55 mpg. Really! On one 110 mile run between gas stops I got 58 mpg!

I added a one tooth larger front sprocket which changed gearing up about 7%. So my speedometer is now spot on as compared against those radar thingies on the side of the road. My odometer seems to reading about 2% LOW!

Are you getting your figures mathematically or off the bike's computer? I've noticed that the on-board mpg is pretty generous.

On my FJ-09, I pretty much get 45 mpg all the time.
My DR650 gets about 45 on solo rides  (faster pace), 50+ when my wife goes.

The Bandit does not have a "bike" mpg reading.

I have a routine when traveling: 1) bike on centerstand 2) fill to brim 3) devide gas in, against miles traveled 4) WOW!
