I'm averaging around 40mpg on my 11 XC with trunk. Best so far was slightly over 45 but that was mostly 55mph. Worst was like you 27 but there was some > 100mph time in there.., bike was new to me and ya just have to see what it will do... or maybe that's jsut me..

He he, not just you. I know what you mean. You like to know what the bike can do. Ride safe.

I usually get around 40 but the last tank was 32. I have no idea why. Hoping it's not a sign of the future, if it is then my car gets better mileage.

Cruising in 6th at 65 gets me 46.

Default Gas pains!

My XR seems to average about 36mpg to 40mpg. Going 80 mph it seems to be around 36-37mpg. Would be nice if they got around 50mpg. I am going to try it without the Victory barn door windshield one day and see if that helps a bit,seems like it would.

Default I'm at 40.2

Just finished a 1200 mile RT through the Appalachians. Reset the mpg counter before the trip. Interstate all the way with cruise pegged at 78 mph. One up with the trunk. Bike is new with 2K miles on it after the trip (800 at trip start). Bike has stage 1 kit.

Another data point.

Default Getting 44 to 45 pretty consistently day-in, day-out

Solo w/trunk removed this weekend was easy cruising between 60 & 65 for more than 60% of the trip mixed with 35MPH towns and some twistys averaged 44 which is pretty close to normal for me. I don't think I've ever been under 40MPG with this bike yet. Mine is 100% stock. calc'd based on fill up, not on-board CPU. Stock w/no power adders...as they say in SpeedTV's Passtime. LOL

Seems like I ride a LOT slower than others here who seem to be pegged pretty close to 80MPH for their interstate runs. You can be CERTAIN that the 15MPH difference between me and them will be good for an extra 3 or 5 MPG




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

Well?? What was your MPG?

Oh, and for the record the Average MPG counter on the bike has been consistently 3 MPG better than the actual pen and paper calculation.
