The manufactures don't but the local dealers near me do. Last summer several dealers were posting estimated MPG.



A few even had "Beat the High Gas Prices" sale events.

Who Cares?? Mileage and motorcycles don't mix. My standard line is if I get more than 35 MPG, I ain't havin' enough fun. I own an '04 GSXR600. Just for the record, my mileage ranges from mid 32s to mid 38s. Screw the mileage, enjoy the ride! Cheers, Jack

2005 BMW R1200GS



"Sunday" riding, no passenger, no luggage, gets 50 mpg on average.



Loaded with full camping gear, BMW side cases "extended" out, higher speeds, gets 42- 45 mpg.

Good point, good thread.



Bandit 600S - 50 mpg in conservative riding, 45 when I'm more spirited. Between that and our Scion and Mazda Protege, our household fleet average is 39 MPG. My wife and I are utter failures as planet-raping RWDB's. And she's even a Republican. We hang our head in shame.

The Cycle World buyer's guide for 2006 has an article on high-MPG bikes. Another good reason to buy a Ninja 250 - 70 mpg.

My Ninja gets around 38 mpg.. Maybe I should start riding it again since gas has exceeded its record price per gallon set in 1981... I think this is the next floor for prices not the ceiling. $4.00 will be the celing for awhile..



Facts and Data supporting my theory

You can probably get a Ford Excursion pretty cheap right about now. There is still time for some good old fashion planet raping!
