I just figured it was a ploy to get into the classifieds.


You're probably right but I still appreciate the irony.

Cooool!

Maybe I just don't get it. Why would knowing that 22.6% of respondents get 35-40mpg be helpful?  Headscratch

OK OK! Who cares?????  Has anyone here purchased a motorcycle because of the MPGs it gets? Really?  Crazy



In part, yes.

Average on the EV has been right around 44mpg, pushing 50mpg on longer trips. I have to say mpg is part of why I picked my ride. Fuel efficiency is not a total deal killer, but I really can't see riding a bike that gets worse mileage than a small car. So, two-liter cruisers and tourers are excess for its own sake., IMO. Even the thirstier liter class bikes usually get more mpg than the Hyundai, unless you get on them pretty hard.

40.5 MPG.

It's gotten better as the bike has broken in but I'm sure it'll go to hell once cold weather sets in.

i haven't even bothered  checking mine cause i only ride .8miles to work with the occasional ride off base for lotto tickets (5 miles round trip). last long ride i've done was to Lexington, MO and that was...like...  gosh... i think over a month or so ago. but as it is... if i go off base twice a week, i fill up once every 3.5 to 4 weeks. now THAT is shit mileage. soo..let's see..  40 miles plus my commuting mileage....roughly 30 more miles...  so 70 to a tank when the light first comes on... so... approx...best case 3 gals =23 mpg, worse case 4 gals = 17-18....  ouch! awww.. F it!!  i love riding it no matter what. when i actually do a trip, i'll check it then.
i used to track all my other bikes since they actually got warmed up otw to work....  VFR was 45 ave...  Busa was 42, 04 750 was 35, 92 nighthawk...  high 50's low 60's, fjr was approx 40. oh, and the 04 750 at the track... no comment!

42-44 w/ the 1250.

Low 40s-high 50s w/ the KLX depending on load and riding environment. Heavy load, high speed, high altitude sucks it down the fastest, off road loaded in just about any conditions I can bank on 50 to calculate safe ranges. Light load, moderate speeds on road I get high 50s. It's just getting broken in at 3K miles, so it may change a bit in the future.
