Ditto, The fuel economy is awesome and way beyond what I thought I would get. For my daily trip to the city for work....I have gone from a $10 train ticket to $1.80 in fuel for half the travelling time. No wonder they are selling like hotcakes!
Mine costs me .60 a mile if you factor in riding 2500-3000 miles a year and the monthly payment on it with insurance. That's still cheaper then anything else I've owned except maybe my Honda Civic I had.
awesome!! I am averaging 77-78 miles a gallon every single fill up now...about 2,100 on the odometer...the only problem i have with the bike...is I love to ride it so much, I find myself having gone another 180+ miles and needing to stop at the gas station ever other time I ride it
I probably could have made it that far (221 miles), never saw the blinking last bar, but I learned to not run them down too low. It can damage the electric fuel pump, which I believe is in the fuel tank itself. They are designed so the fuel runs through them and keeps the pump cool.
My record so far is 355 km (220 miles) for 11.1 litres. Not sure (as others have said) whether it still had 2 litres left or not. I could still see some contents swishing around in the tank enough for more than a few kms left in it . But agree best not to run it dry where possible.
