Some bikes seem to get better fuel economy as they get broken in. My 2005 VFR was awful to start - low 30 mpg. It got better and better until 50,000 kilometres then I was consistently getting 40-45mpg (5.4 - 5.5 l/100km).
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!
