I'm not a highway man. Neck is too bad a shape to ride a naked bike on the slab. I ride primarily backroads @ 50-60 mph and easily get 50 mpg. Of course I'm cruising at less than 3,500 rpms. That helps. I'm still amazed that these bikes get scooter mileage. My zrx1200r gets right at 50 mpg with similar riding. My bmw r1200r averages 54 mpg. Who the heck would want to ride a scooter anyway? Jut say'n.
