Fuel consumption (MPG) for Super Enduro?

Yes I searched and couldn't find it with initial search. Trying not to spend five days sifting through every single thread. But...

what type of gase mileage/mpg do you Super Enduro owners get when highway/asphalt touring sections? Same question for those that own the Supermoto 990s?

I dont have either, I have a 950 SM.

When i ride it hard, I get 36-38 mpg, when I drive nice I get 43-47 mpg.

Thats in pretty basic stock form, no idea what kind of jetting, stock mufflers, 17 inch tires, and 16/41 gearing.

Mine does 160 km's between refuel stops. The tank is then filled with 11 liter.

with H2W jetting, 16/45 gearing and steady 120-140 km/hr cruising it will do 180km till low fuel light

How do you like 17/42 compared to 17/45?

Heavy off road use at the Beacons Rally in Wales last weekend saw the fuel light come on after 80 miles. Saying that, there was a lot of fire roads and techincal stuff so I would think on a 'normal' ride about 120 miles. I don't know if changing to a vacuum only fuel pump will increase the efficency, but I'll be able to tell you as i'm looking to fit one for the Hafren rally at the end of September. The bike stalls too much on the technical stuff with the standard setup.

I average 36 to 40 mpg riding mixed conditions. Probably would be better if I did not have "right wrist wheelie turrets"!

I've seen as low as 25mpg............... and at best milking it for fear of not making it to the next station 45 or 50 I think.........

I was recently commuting a fairly high speed run..... 75-95 mph to hang with the traffic for 120 miles a day. Averaged 35mpg give or take. Extended 95+ dropped that a bit a few times.

That was with 17/45 gearing on tkc80 front / scorp or k60 rear. Hard bags and givi trunk too.

There are a lot of open roads in Oz so I change the gearing to suite.

Around town 4th or 5th is all that's needed. Requires a bit more gear shifting to get the full power on.

But with the 16/45 I was melting tyres and riding it like my CR500 front wheel off the ground most of the time.

Worst I've seen is 12 mpg but is was in deep heavy sand and at race pace. Usually around 30.
