Had to post this here. I have a 2007 XT225. It seems whenever I go for a ride with my wife on her 2005 49cc Honda Metro scooter, I get the highest gas mileage.Thats understandable, since the Metro tops out about 40 mph, so the XT never works up a sweat. We went for a 39 mile easy putt around some nice slow roads, and some riding in downtown Tacoma, Wa., again at slow speeds.Through the five mile drive at Point Defiance Park etc, etc. Topped off the XT after the ride.Heres the info: 39.4 miles/.369 US gallons=106.78 mpg. Thats a new record for this XT with me on it. I do seem to get higher gas mileage than the average owner does.As an example, my 2005 KLR650 is now averaging about 59.x, and my 2007 Royal Enfield Bullet just got 88.5 the other day.
I will not be getting rid of the XT any time soon.
