Question about stability and consuption
on: May 30, 2016, 11:48:58 AM
I'm going to sell my cbr 1100xx since i'm not travelling that far any more and i need a bike for everyday use,some turing during summer ,an all around bike in general.How does the bike feel with a second person onboard.Is the passenger seat confortable enough?Does fuel consuption get affected dramaticly with a second person onboard?

Hey ho.
I think the consumption isn't great, I get about 16kms to a litre averaging the two, 15-ish if I'm in the city and 18 on the highways at about... let's just put it as above 110km/h.

I did piggyback my boyfi and we weighed in at about 180kg's, I'm lighter so I had the preload set to 1 turn towards soft since I usually solo and that ended up not being very comfortable for him. I didn't max out the rear sus on bumps but I think with proper settings, it would be mighty perfect. A breeze to cruise at 110 too. FC dropped from 18 to about 17, and the leg portion gets warm.

You get about 330kms average per tank.The tank is 20.8 litres right? I think you are ok if you ride with passenger.I used to get about 250-260kms on highway with my previous bike with 23 litre tank. You have 2011 model right? Honda says fuel consuption dropped after engine modifications on 2014 model.

I don´t think the consumption is that bad, i rode mine a 2011 model friday and sunday for 299km and I filled it up with 12,9 litres of fuel and that is 4,3l/100km which isn´t that bad I think. And my weight is 120 kilos +
The stability is for me very good both in the city and out on the roads.

Sorry,  but I don't believe it !  4,3l/100kms ??? I never heard someone with a Crossrunner telling something like that ! I have the same model and I never did below 6l/100kms !
I use the bike as a hobby for leisure and I don't want to change it for another bike ! I love riding the Crossrunner , but 4,3 l/100kms isn´t a credible scenario !  :164:

Just for a different angle my 2015 Crossrunner computer reports an average of around 52 miles per gallon (18.4km/ltr = 5.43 ltr/100km) at fill up time, my previous 2013 Crossrunner was reporting slightly less, all in normal riding

I didn´t either actually but the trip said 299km and I filled it up all the way to the lid and it was 12,9 litres so.... that is the fact.
After what I have read it should be much worse... But we will have to see when I have ridden it some more.
