Is fuel economy a consideration? It's never been to me personally, since I ride for fun, not economy. But I know that for some people it is important. I have no idea what sort of mileage figures the V-Max delivers, but my Sportster gets about 54 mpg when ridden "normally" on back roads (65 mph average), and around 48 mpg when I wring its neck (hard acceleration and revs in the twisties).
