The claim is 38 mpg. I've had better & worse depending on of course on driving conditions (DUH) but suprisingly I got 40 mpg on a trip to Sacramento a while back & I was running pretty hard most of the time. There were long runs of 100 mph+ & when I filled up it took 4 gallons & I had traveled 169 miles. That averaged out to a shade over 40 mpg. Go figure. I had similar milage on a trip to Vegas & back, again with high speed sections along the way. @ one point I maxed my bike out @ 162 mph (don't know for sure how accurate the speedo is) for a minute or two & still got excellant mileage. I actually get my worse mileage either in town or hot rodding it through the twisties wear you know the throttle is like an off or on switch
