Drago your math is off by 10mpg
192.8 miles / 3.57gallons = 54mpg
Still good but my bike on daily 45 mile commute has ranged from 38mpg to one 50mpg trip and my general average over 3500 miles has been 44mpg. 10% Ethanol gas sucks!! 50mpg achieved with non ethanol gas but its only available at select gas stations so I rarely get to use it. Gov wants better mileage then feeds our cars and motos this junk!!

Squid - Drago's math is fine. Don't forget that a British gallon is 4.55 liters, so he used just under 3 British gallons to go 192 miles, so 64 mpg is correct.

A US gallon is only 3.8 liters, so British mpg figures will be around 20% higher than US mpg numbers

Just done a quick calculation on to-day's ride up and down the N W Coast, 65 mpg, that's UK gallons, very good considering the terrain.

Of interest. Although I haven't done a proper test ie litres in vKs. I get the impression that the AT is not much more fuel efficient than my ST1300 that I traded in on this bike. It was heavier by almost 60kg but I could do almost 600ks on 27L of fuel. Still the weight was getting to me on the ST which is one of many reasons I went for the AT 340Ks with the AT on 17L of fuel

A mixture of highway 140-160km/h.. Inner city stuff and 200km offroad during the first 1000km had seen 5,5litres per 100 km.. Or there abouts.. I don't really hang around.. The offroad included topbox and saddlebags as I was a weekend away.. She is a supermodel..not a convent girl.. Enjoy her.. Lol
