Question 2013 1190 adventure / 1190 r fuel com.? What is yours?

Hi all just wanted to know how much our fuel spend ? Are we using a lot or is there something wrong with the onboard computers.

A little info.

1 mile....... 1.6 km

1 uk gallon..... 4.546 litres

1 USA gallon .... 3.785 litres

So my adventure 1190 shows,

30 mpg in city with two up.

34-36 mpg outside the city two up. (60 mph,70 mph,80 mph constant speeds)


So what is yours...?

6.0 to 6.5 litres per 100 km on the counter. You seem to have the conversion digits right there? :P 1up, mixed on-/offroad/city

(36-39 mpg )

I am going to my dealer about fuel,this Saturday. I did a little test fill up the tank full, ride 100 km and stop then fill up again 9.4 litres

I rode on street mode all the test and two up with bags and never past 6 ooo rpm. It seems like I used a little oil as well. Around 200 ml strange

did your onboard computer also indicate that consumption?

Yes it does. That's why I do this test I though the on board computer wrong but it doesn't. For the last two days I can almost smell petrol as well .

I wouldn't ride it any more in that condition - get it to the dealer ASAP

The sad thing is there is nothing wrong with the bike and I am taking it back tomorrow.

Hi all,

After 2-3 months the ODO meter gives 8000km. (stil no problem at all )

Fuel, 1 liter brings me 15 kilometers.
Never needed to refill oil and level is still oke.

I don't think the total odo is of any influence on the fuel consumption per kilometer.

I hope there is nothing wrong with your bike. Here are some options for seeing it under a different light:

Checking oil level requires measuring it the same way all the time. Oil temperature, how long after engine was run, and angle of the bike make a difference. Some bikes consume more oil during break in phase.

Gasoline consumption is related to many things. You say you keep it under 6K RPM, that is fine except that how fast you get there might make a difference. Lugging the engine is not going to produce better results necessarily and you should not be lugging it during break in phase (not saying you lug it, just stating it as a possible scenario). All my bikes have improved gas-mileage after the initial thousand miles and continue so up until 3,000 miles or more. When I ride against the wind I get radically different numbers than otherwise. Stop and go in the city consumes more gasoline. Passenger makes a good difference as well. And filling up levels make a difference as well. The overall average should tell the story better than one fill up.

I understand all you saying but with a great respect I had a Kawasaki Zx14R and I done exactly the same riding two up I used to get 34 mpg . I thing lover capacity engine should burn less fuel. I don't know if I am lugging it but I didn't ride at constant rev on a motorway yet and I have 900 miles on the clock. I break it in very well. V- twin is difficult to understand sometimes and I know they can really burn petrol but I though this is about aggressive to get 29 mpg it's not a track day and its not a Ducati panigale.

Something wrong there, mine reads between 48 and 53 mpg (uk) and i haven't exactly taken it easy. No smell of fuel either, so i would get yours back to the dealer

Are you sure its not leaking our an overflow or something?? Smell of fuel and excess consumption could mean a leak
