Mileage

What MPG are you UK Stromers getting from the 1k. Converting the US mileage would suggest 57MPG. This seems rather a lot as I'm only getting an average of 47mpg on my GSX750F. Maybe it's the way I ride. Best ever was 60mpg.

Ordering the DL1000K6GT this weekend for delivery the following weekend. Getting divorced upon arriving home, good job I'm getting a bike that can take me around the world!

04 GSXF750

87 TS125

Used daily DL1000 K7 - returns 44MPG...

.... on commute into work, 3.5k miles since new 20th Nov 07. Combination of motor-way and urban sprawl. Not too impressive but I reckon will get closer to 50 mpg if I was to tour it as would be less stop start in traffic. No way I'd get over 50; I think that is unrealistic for a modern 1000 cc machine.

Got my Vee a couple of weeks ago, and only used one tankful so far, upon re-filling, mileage worked out at just under 43mpg, mixture of roads and riding.

I reckon that's pretty good, and would expect once she gets a couple of thousand miles on her, she'll be doing around 45, with up to 50 on a run.

Figures are based on UK measurements.
