Poll Question:
This has been done but since we have polls now I thought it'd be nice to see where people were at.

Interesting poll. I'd love to see a poll that could show the types of bikes people are riding as corrilated to their MPG.. it'd be an interesting study.

My Ninja 500 has consistently averaged a bit over 56 mpg and has a 4.8 gallon tank. I can go over 200 miles without reserve.

An '03 Honda CBR600RR (which I've been riding for a few months) seems to get around 35-40 mpg city and around 45-50 mpg highway. I used to think that this was really crappy fuel economy for a light 600cc bike but in reading around and talking to people, '01--04 R6's and Gixxers get comparable mileage and Triumph Daytona's get slightly worse. But I imagine fuel economy varies greatly with riding style for these types of bikes.

Any literbike, touring bike, or cruiser owners want to chime in?

I am averaging only slightly better fuel mileage (45mpg) on my 2004monster620 than i got on my 99R1 liter sportbike in spite of the R1 having more than 2x the horsepower. . Maybe its because the R1 was really more efficient and i open the throttle a lot less on the R1. On the monster i almost always open the throttle to the stops, some thing i dont remember doing on the R1. and the R1 has better aerodynamics and is just as light as the monster.

I can easily stretch the monsters mileage to about 50mpg on long rides if i limit my engine revs, and this is easy to do because the monster has nice low end torque.

Yup!

I have a 1100 BMW which easily beats that. But you have a race replica bike there - a race bike on the road. It is not tuned for economy AT ALL. economy probaably does not vary enormously - it just gets worse!
