Hey all
Just a quick survey to see what fuel economy people are getting out there.

I think mine is terrible at the moment, so I'll need to see the dealer on the first service to check what map it's running.

Currently getting between 8 and 8.5 L/100km, which is pretty poor (my SUV does better). This is with arrows, baffles removed, and nothing done to the air filter.

I know it's for fun, but it'd be nice to see less of the inside of servos...

:-)

What are you guys getting?

On the highway mine burns 6 L/100km. In the city it sucks 12 L/100km. But then who cares since it put a big grin on our faces :)

Completely agree guys!
Just wanted to ensure there wasn't an issue with the map I was running....

I have enough filling to capacity for up to 130 kilometers to complete desiccation. Fuel consumption is less than 12-13 l/100 km I did not go, but I'm very actively using throttle and often go to the cutoff.

Displacement - 1200 cc, he can not physically consume little fuel. Try very gently twist the throttle stick - may fuel consumption and less to 8 l/100 km ...
But why all this at such a motorcycle? BMW1200GS better to take, if fuel consumption so critical ...
Either drive or fuel.

Hi guys. My dorso is a pig on fuel economy...V8 cars get better mileage! But when you are threading through the traffic and wheelie'ing in second gear, you forget all about it right??

The light comes on at between 85-95km. Get about 9km/L.

mine about the same until 2013 map installed a few weeks ago, I haven't done may miles yet but am beyond the 60/65 miles I normally get before the light comes on so it looks positive

have also blanked the rad as it takes an age to warm up on the frosty commute, but I suspect warm up is not an issue for my Aussie cousins!!

My 750 per the computer is averaging 54+ mpg. I ride mostly highway as a commuter, 30% street, backroads.

Hi mine is a 13 plate, I'm getting about 90-100 from full to light on, that's part motorway and part playing in the Lake District , but still the same I think the more you play the less you get, but you get a bigger grin

On a more open road type ride i get about 155-160klms before the fuel light comes on then when i fill it usually takes about 12 litres so thats about 7.5litres/100 klms. Around town or in the twisties i get about 130klms before the light comes on thats about 9.5litres/100 klms.

My 2012, 1200 will get 25mpg when running it spiritedly. On highway I will net in the mid 40's.

Its a 1200, mpg isn't the reason I bought it.

If I am on the highway, all flat and gentle cruising the fuel calculator will sustain in the 60's, by the time all the passing and accelerating is done the avg is in the 40's. I think if you were exceptionally kind to it you could manage 60mpg if you kept it under 65mph. 80mph forget about it.

I get my 2013 model tomorrow. It will have the arrows and the factory re-map for them. I am expecting similar fuel consumption to my Tuono V4 which is about 120km before fuel light. I found on the TV4 that running the race map on Track setting gave me an extra 20km per tank.
Are you guys running in Sport or Touring mode? Aprilia retards the ignition on rain and touring modes which in turn uses more fuel because its less than optimal.

Full sport all day, duck. 80km to a tank in the hills, but what a way to spend money.:banana:

On my 12 I found the opposite. I could get 45 mpg on T mode and S only gave me around 30 mpg.

I'm happy now.... good friend of mine bought a Rivale and the Tank is even smaller than the DD Tank. So I'm not the only one who has to stop after 120 km.....:burnout:
