wow that is bad....I have been doing quite a bit of freeway riding too and have been getting a lot more than that. Not all freeway riding though......
How much do you weigh? Were you rolling in top gear?gas mileage sucks on the freeway!!! i got 140 miles on a full tank doing about 70-85 miles.
I think this says it all. Under these conditions the mpg doesn't sound too bad. Back off a little and it would probably be a lot better.yes the gas tank was full, the bike was straight when it was getting full. The gas went past the neck of the gas tank. I weight 200 pnds and I drive it around 70-85 on the freeway would ride it faster but it wont give me no more due to the wind.
So, you got 56, I haven't seen any other bikes getting any better at those speeds. It will go lower, I saw someone record 52. That still seems pretty good for the low side of mileage figures.
well, how much did you put in to fill it up? I only get 2.5 gallons in when I fill up. 140/2.5 sounds about right. Naaim recorded 57 for his first two tanks, and was doing some 'tests.' My lowest so far is 62, but it wasn't all highway and mostly only 60-70
ok ok i see your point, yea you are right. it was 2.554 gallons. so Honda is lying about this bike having a 3.5 tank. S.O.B!!!
should have gone with the NINJA!!!
Hey, you should be doing better, I am lighter 70kg soakin wet, but have used my bike on the coast 5ft above sea level to 2500 ft ASL. Ive run flat out on the superstrada at 150kph for 20 minutes each way, I admit that being heavier may affect or is it effect mileage but it shouldnt be that drastic. Also even at my weight if I come untucked (I never truly get a full race tuck) but it really does have a airbrake effect if you dont compensate with the throttle. Also I am using 91 or 92 octane gas, there are only 2 grades available here, the above and a 98 o-rated fuel. Maybe swing back to the dealer for a ckeck, or do a at home restart. Disconnect the battery for bit and see if it resets the ignition'air fuel mapping, (also will hafta reset the clock). Hope yah sort it out, the only issue ive had with mine is that the roads here are very twisty and before i run out of lean angle the foot pegs start barkin..LOLyes the gas tank was full, the bike was straight when it was getting full.
