I'm getting closer now. A 75 mile ride on two lane highway with around 20 miles of gravel roads running 45-50 mph netted 83.6 mpg.
This had a lot of stops with Givi v35's/E55 Maxia luggage and a medium CalSci screen. I'm on your toes DD.

Comparing machines

I recently added a new Suzuki DRZ400S to the garage, and with the breaking in I was getting about 60mpg. With the break-in past and with my riding more typical the DRZ is returning 50 to 55 mpg now. For black top riding I'm typically running around 60 mph. For my riding done on the NC700X, I'm riding 5 to 10 mph faster and not trying for best mpg and the NC has been very consistent 65mpg. Honda sure did their homework with this engine and probably even the "beak" front end has something to do with the good mpg.

You guys are trying to give me a reason to replace my 250 Ninja aren't ya?

Probably not a jaw dropper in the performance department, but I'd buy it as a new commuter for sure.

Performance is relative.
The NC700X is 1.5 seconds quicker in the 1/4 and 2 seconds quicker 0-60 than the 250 Ninja.
So a pretty decent speed upgrade from the 250.

It is also physically a lot bigger and would likely be more comfortable for gorilla sized folks like me.

I'm roughly 6'1 and 215lbs geared up. The Ninja is fine for my 25 mile one way commute but north of 75 miles I start to get cramped.

I need to go sit on a new Red NC700x and see what it has to offer for comfort.

I found my 2004 Ninja 250 to be extremely uncomfortable. Although I have 2" and had 50lbs on you.
