Uhhh, they have the 1000 and the 650 both in the same category of 50-59.....I dont think I have spoke with a 1000 owner that gets over 50 mpg...Also the 650 gets different economy for 07-10 model years than the older models from what I have seen. This seems pretty bogus generic... They also have many of my previous bikes listed wher the fuel economy is way off anythign I ever got. They have a K1200RS listed as 40-45...LOL Of the 3 I have had 40 aint gonna happen unless its downhill with a tailwind, and in neutral......30-35 is more like it.

Strange chart.

The Kawasaki EX250F is a very common bike, made from the late '80s to '08 and widely reputed to get 70+MPG (I never did but maybe it's possible), but it isn't on their list at all...instead they have the old EX250E showing as made from '86-'87.

Both the DL1000 and DL650 are in the 50-59MPG box, though most of what I've read says the DL1000 more honestly runs in the low 40s.

Seems a bit optimistic to put the XS1100 in the 40-45 bracket too. 35-49 sounds more realistic to me.

I wonder how accurate the rest of the information is.

I've yet to get above 45 mpg on my Wee...maybe I should lay off the throttle a bit?

They list the VTX 1300 and the 1600 Nomad (cruisers) in the 45 to 49 MPG range also. I had both, and on two different forums no one ever got that milage? Whoever wrote this isn't precise to say the least! Cheers--BB

I used to get about 85mpg with my '73 CB125S, and anywhere between 90mpg and 110mpg with my first bike, a '67 S90

I am lucky to get 35. Where the Hell is my other 15 MPG?

Guess I better get it checked out.

I have to take that back, now. I went on a long ride Saturday and hit a couple of legs at better than 50mpg (including one at 63mpg - must've been mostly downhill).

45 mpg on this bike is perfectly good. Don't change.
