Fuel consumption
« on: December 14, 2011, 12:26:27 PM »
Hello everyone.
I'm a newbie. 
Thinking of getting a Crossrunner.  Have owned four VFR's in the past.  Two 750's and two 800's.  Loved 'em to bits.  The Crossrunner's riding position would suit my ageing body perfectly. 
Bit concerned about the fuel consumption though.  Many test riders, including Kevin Ash, only get 35 mpg (Imperial).  The latest Motorcycle Sport and Leisure magazine says '55 mpg frugal'. Who is right?  What are the members of this forum achieving?

I'm new with the bike too but I think they are both right. Depends on the riding style I guess. In VTEC mode I can see it getting thirsty especially with pillion, but cruising at 75mph on motorways seems very economical. Not enough miles to make a judgement but my first impressions are that is the rider who decides how economical this bike should be.

I am averaging approx 46mpg. This is without any real efforts to ride with economy in mind

Actually, id say everyones correct.  Kev ash is correct at about 33-35mpg in loony mode, and in touring mode, short shiffting, but not hanging about, 55mpg is achieveable.
I dont think the bikes any thirstier than my vfr800 vtec.

I would go along with all of above - on some super long sunny rides over into South Wales/Brecon etc -consumption was high 30mpg's and was partly due to sheer enjoyment of the V tec in lower gears than necessary a lot of the time. But when riding in a more controlled "cruise" down to South Coast for a short stay, with luggage on board and less V -tec, much better consumption - up by 10mpg.  According to tripometer - am doing overall average 45 mpg since new - which is about same as 1250 suzuki was giving - so am happy - particularly as its so much more fun on this bike.
