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

So, 63 mpg USA gallons. It's just an estimate, they rate the CBR250R at 77 USA-MPG and I'm getting 50-51 mpg most days.

I've got the BT45's on my CBR250X(lifted an inch, standard bars, only X model made), good little tire.
