I've had other people try to convince me of the C-14's respectable gas mileage, but I've always been skepticle.
Even with the econo fuel mode, sounds like it's pretty hard for most riders to stay off the throttle and get those good numbers.
My guess is that you would be more likely to miss the power of the C-14 than to not see a significant improvement in gas mileage, particularly if you can get used to cruising at <= 60mph like Greywolf says.
With all that said, I admit to a certain attraction to the C-14, but the gas mileage, heel-under-butt riding position, and questionable affordability and availability of certain aftermarket parts(such as a tall enough windscreen) makes it seem unlikely that I would ever own one.
Gas mileage is the key to making a motorcycle compariably cost-justifiable when compared to my 4-wheel vehicle, which is something I insist on in a motorcycle.
