I've done over 300 miles now and at the last fuel up calculated the mpg. I'm pleased to say it's 60.9, which means I should get around 180 to a full tank! :D This of course is running-in mpg but it's had a very varied riding up and down all the recommended revs (and occasionally a bit more oops), on dual carriageways, towns, stop/start, lots of country lanes, hills and bends. I haven't really been riding much slower than I would ordinarily.

It's more than I expected and hopeful it will stay around that figure!

I am only getting 50mpg during the running in period. Have had the first service, and have done approx. 800 miles total. I am running in as specified in the manual.
My Icon is also red, so it's not the colour causing the mileage differential!

Just ran out of gas today aften 252 km's, the engine stopped 1 km from the gasstation and i had to shake the tank a bit and then vent on just making it to the gasstation :eek: :)
252km's = 153 miles. Pretty much what was expected. But it's also not surprising to see "littleowl" projecting 180 miles (which is getting close to 300km) using a gentle throttle hand.

No, probably due to the fact I love trundling around the countryside admiring the views which I couldn't do if I was riding it like I stole it :laugh:. Not saying I ride like a granny but perhaps I'm a bit easier on the throttle ;), ALTHOUGH! I have probably been up around the higher end of running in revs than lower :confused: - I got similar mpgs from my previous bikes, even 70 from one of them :D.

I'll see what it is once the run in period has passed .. ;)

In an earlier post I said I'd update with some mpg figures:
Don't forget I'm in traffic most of the time and I'm enjoying the bike rather than trying to save fuel....
Also these figures are in imperial gallons ( not US)

127 miles /10:79 litres = 11:77 miles per litre.
Or 11:77 / 4:55 = 2:59 gallons. 127 / 2:59 = 49:03 mpg

108 miles /10 litres = 10:8 miles per litre
Or 10 / 4:55=2:2 gallons. 108 / 2:2=49 mpg

Basically I'm getting 49 mpg. I hope that's helpful to someone although mpg wouldn't have influenced my decision to buy the bike!

Pete
