most of mine get around 50 the little ex 250 gets a little above 60 the xt 225 gets about 70 the riva 200 gets about 45. The old cbr 600 staying just maybe 5 over gets close to 60.

Put it in 6th gear as much as you can and shift earlier than you feel necessary if you want to save fuel. Too many people want to hear their exhaust screaming and have it way up in the rev range for more power.

Think about how many miles you get out of a tank at the track or in the forest. I can typically get 125 miles before my fuel light comes on if I am being easy on the throttle, but I have ran out of gas with only 75 miles on the tank in Fayetteville.

If I'm just cruising I get about 40, but when the riding gets spirted it drops dramatically.

That's just because you don't know how to shift yet.

our old F3 endurance bike got upper 30's while racing. We always figured gal/hr but when the race was done you could go back and do laps*tracklength/gal used.

+1. The R1 and CBR 1k can be gas guzzlers.

And use 6th gear Tony. It is there for a reason.
This thing has 6 gears! Lol I use it sometimes but when I'm feelin alittle froggy I keep it in 4th so I can have plenty of umph.
