Problem found:
Crossrunner is not the same as the NC700x............Crossrunner not sold in the US.

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.

Are you sure you don't mean gallons instead of tanks ?

Exactly my experience too. Folks talk about how vehicles get better mileage after break-in, but at least for everything I've ever bought new, my more liberal use of the throttle completely overwhelms this effect.

Yes, I got that all wrong. 9,200 miles by 67 mpg = 137 gallons or about 45 fill-ups.

Sorry, poor choice of words...I apologize.


Should have said, nice to see real world numbers getting reported.

I ride like I ride, brand new or used bike. So my mileage does tend to go up a bit as it breaks in. It's "all other things being equal," per usual. If you ride it harder as time goes by, it'll surely show in the figures. And the more figures we see, the more representative it'll be. Good to see input still coming in.

My wife should be putting money down on my bike any minute now.
So I guess the rest of my posts about the NC should be in the Owners thread.
See you there. Come on Spring, or at least a nice 40 degree day
