Got mine a fortnight ago, just had the first chance to work out mpg. 62.2mpg. Yes, I know I must be riding in BOF mode, but I'm quite pleased with that.
What are other owners getting to the gallon?

Hi, you might be interested in a few figures for my W650 which should be similar.The best figure over 4 years was 86.1 The worst 48.8. Average June 2002 to October 2003 was 71.5 November 2003 to July 2006 was 68.5 By then I'd done about 20k miles. A chap in the know reckoned these type of bikes didn't start loosening up until this mileage. I may add that I was not in the habit of hanging about, but by the same token didn't abuse the engine. Hope this is of interest to you. They are great bikes, full of character. The only reason I sold mine was because I fancied an ER6F but couldn't afford both. I saw 'mine' at a bike meeting in 2015-it looked fabulous-wah!

Thanks for that, owdbiker, it's interesting. As mine's done 3,500 it seems there's a way to go before it's running as free as it can.
It's handy to know 62mpg isn't a flash in the pan.

Hi Wilsonsteve, I think you'll get 70 mpg plus on a regular basis in due course. Certainly mid 60s is very attainable. Enjoy!
