Honda are claiming 76mpg (imperial), just a shade under the 700X. 260-280 miles to a tank.

8000-mile service intervals.

Tyres are - and this is a guess - more likely to be something like Bridgestone BT45, rather than 23. Less cost, in other words.

In the UK the bike is allegedly sub-5000. For comparison, an optioned DL650 or Versys is closer to 7000.
