And the bike currently has less than 2000kms on it, that could also affect consumption a tiny bit. Iīm using gasoline with 5% ethanol.

(...now anyone care to enlighten me, how does one convert these funny European figures to US MPG??)
57 mpg isn't bad at all. Try this! http://www.markporthouse.net/rangie/...conversion.htm The Dl650 is a great bike!
Lets see you get 80 mpg US!! I will bet you can get close. If Honda hadn't made the NCX, I would have bought a WEE.
I got 71 mpg my first tank but I'm just commuting.
