Hi all,

Just bought a 2nd hand CRF1000DG DCT Tricolor from 2016.
I came from an NC700X and upgraded to this beautiful Africa Twin.

So far just bought a new pair of Dunlop Trail Smart Max and a Top case Kappa Garda Kgr46.

My only concern is the fuel economy (maybe badly used to my previous NC consumption:grin2:)
At the moment is doing 42MPG (5.5L/100Km) when riding very very calm. If I ride as I used to do with my NC700X, it goes up to 37MPG (6.3L/100Km). All the rest, I'm loving it! :grin2:

Hey Rue,

Congrats on your purchase. Looks like you are getting better MPG than above
5.5L/4.54 litres (Gallon) = 1.21gallons. 100km = 62.5km. 62.5/1.21= 51.65mpg

Enjoy your ride
