Mileage is so lost on me with motorcycles...... Maybe if your touring but.......

Me too. It is not big deal, for me, personally. I wish I could ride enough to where it was....but heres what got me with this one.

I had a sv 650 and loved it. Great bike. At my high altitude , maybe more power would be nice, but whatever.

It was good for 45mpg. Maybe 50 if I rode really slow. Stock bike, stock ecu.

How did we go from this, to a claimed 73...?? AND keep 71 horsepower? Not like hondas nc 700x...75mpg, but low power, low rpm, and zero excitement.

I hope they pulled it off, but I would not lay money down saying its real unless someone gave me very, very good odds. It sounds 15% too high, but we'll see.

I agree. It's not about economy with me. Having said that, My Gladius gave up very good mileage. Quite a bit better than My DR 650,in fact. Although economy isn't my first priority, I'd be a fool to say that I didn't welcome a more efficient bike.
