Ya. Like my fz1 gets about 28 to 30 mpg. But if my dad owned my bike for some weird reason hed probably get 35-40 mpg.
I keep hoping the novelty of the liter bike will wear off and my hand will stop consuming so much throttle cable.
I think I'm going to get an enduro, either big money on a 701 or budget bike on a dr 650.
My DR650 since I bought it in April 2016 (about 90% street riding, 10% dirt):
Max MPG: 46.06
Min MPG: 38.18
Avg MPG: 42.43
It's also my wheelie learning apparatus, which may or may not be helping much. Oh, and I make a point of hunting down gravel roads and sliding around on them, so factor that in a wee bit.
Ever ride a wr250 with an exhaust and power commander? Mine made 30hp at the back tire and weighs 300lbs ready to ride, I get 40mpg but I'm sure if you weren't riding wheelies and abusing it everywhere like I do it would get better.
As for the mileage debate on a SV I had a naked SV and my best mileage was 54 worst was 38, I sold it to a friend of mine who's 5" shorter and substantially less sail and he got 50 pretty consistently. SV's are great bikes and last for a long time if cared for properly!

Actually I mAde up my mind on Saturday that I'm going to get a 250 sport. Either a wr250 or crf250 but ya after market exhaust will be a Must.
Buying a second bike.
