Nice to hear some honesty on the mpg numbers, 47 mpg is still respectable. I'm struggling to get 50 mpg out of the little CBR250R right now. Maybe I'll just skip the 700X and go full gas guzzler with the Goldwing Bagster.
I have always been honest with mpg figures. 9,200 miles on the NC700X now - about 137 tanks of gas.
