    Whitch to buy ?

    I've had a 750 dd and sold it a few years ago but thinking of getting another the one thing that got to me was the small tank range I'd like a 1200 for the extra power the 750 in a bit heavy for the power so was thinking of the 12 but when they first came out I herd they was bad on fuel with people getting just over 60 to a tank how bad are they is it true or did they sort it with a new map has anyone had the 750 and 1200 and what do you think there's only one 1200 for sale in the uk that I can find and the dealer won't let me try it I'd like to do a tank full down to light on What mileage are you lot getting

    You will not regret buying a DD1200. Some had minor fueling issues, but this can be easily sorted by loading the latest ECU program and by adding a Fatduc and tweeking. As far as mileage goes, there is much written about this on this site. Have a look. I generally find mine goes 150km to low fuel warning with another 50km or so available after that ( the light comes on early with about 4 liters left). Stop and start mileage may of course be less than this, and may also be more if steady state cruising 80 - 120kph. Smiles per gallon very high with this bike.

    Thanks Tom so about the same as the 750 to a tank 90 miles then light I only use to get 17 miles with the light on I had to push it twice to get fuel
