Scooter MPG Comparison - Stromtrooper Forum : Suzuki V-Strom Motorcycle Forums
Other Motorcycles Forum for you to engage in banter about other motorcycles. Good place for former (and soon to be) V-Strom owners to keep on the site even though they are without a Strom. This is not a tech forum on other bikes. There are other sites for that.

Scooter MPG Comparison

MPG, anyone ?

Honda Scooter Comparison

Honda PCX

Honda Ruckus

Burgman 400

Burgman 650 - Looking at the mpg of the Burgman 650 makes me wonder why anyone would own one. The Wee is competitive with this, and with much higher performance.

Yamaha Zuma 125

If mpg is your thing, I’d go with a Honda Scooter—provided this data is accurate. But there’s still all that exaggerated tire & transmission component life data to consider, too. Still, along with the NC700X, I’d say Honda is really trying to position themselves as the MPG leader in two-wheeled vehicles in the USA.

People that go with the 650 Burgman do it for reasons other than mileage and there is quite a bit more to scooters than gas mileage. The auto transmission, the weather protection, underseat storage, the low center of gravity and ease of handling, easy reach to the ground. Many claim to use them for touring.
Performance can be thought of in many ways other than outright power and speed.

Used to consistently get 100mpg on my TW200. It was always at lower speeds (35-45 mph).

The Burgman 400 will consistently give you gas mileage in the mid-60s. In the winter, I'll have it dip to about 58-59 mpg. In the summer on a day long trip, it'll be in the high 60s and low 70s.

My silverwing averaged 43mpg. I was un enthused as it meant looking for gas every 140 miles. Seems dumb for a bike with all day riding comfort.
