So the important question I suppose is what economy does the wife get?
The answer to that question:
The wife is on a Honda Reflex 250cc '"midi" scooter. It averages a respectable 70mpg (US). But yes, the NC700X beat it in fuel economy. I think the downfall of the CVT transmission is that it sets the RPM for you. You don't have the ability to go to lower RPM/taller gearing on the fly when you want good economy. I think if the Reflex was geared (belted?) taller it could hit 80 mpg when ridden gently.
