That's what I like to hear, people really riding these things to the extent they should. Too many people I know aren't even near as dedicated to riding, rarely see them out, mainly in cages

Yes! 58 MPG sounds good to me . I rarely see that with my KLR. Look, the size of the tank is a fixed capacity. The fuel consumption is very important to me. I ride places like the Trans Labrador Highway and the Dalton highway to Produe Bay, Alaska. It is 240 miles to the next gas. The differance between 50 mpg and 58 mpg could make you a hitch hiker. Just sayin.

I have done the first 1000, drove very smooth and carefull (neighter too high nor too low RPM, no short rides, no hard acceleration) and end up at about 5,2 l / 100 km average consumption. The cold over here might have influence on the fuel/ air mix, but it's not that positive as promised by Honda. On the other hand, it is absolutely no issue to me.

Thanks Bart.

Is that what the bike tells you it is doing or is it what you have been measuring?

I have ridden 2000km now. I guess just like Bart in the Belgian moderately cold weather.
Today I have riden 345km and board computer gave me a 5,7l (which I found a bit dissapointing). I filled my baby up with exactly 18l. 18l/3,45(00km) is 5,2l/100km. This is the second time that the board computer consumption is higher than real consumption.

I rode the 345km today at highwayspeeds betwee 125 and 135 km/h.

I hope the consumtion will still descend in near future!

As I only have a bike and no car, fuel consumption is a issue for me. I hope I'll dive under 5l/100.

Hi ABJ, where are you from? Do you have the tripmaster yet? And what do you think of the heated grips?

Hey Bart
I'm from Ieper, West-Flanders. I asked my dealer about tripmaster and book but he didn't knew about it.

I wrote something in your heated-grip-thread. Mine don't work at all. At level 5 I had cold hands this morning while it was 5C. Will complain about it Friday at the dealer.

Please do. Honda has to solve this. I consider contacting Honda Belgium too. Let's keep each other informed.
