Question Gas Mileage on an 01 R6?

Just out of curiosity, I was wondering what the gas mileage is on the R6's? If this question has come up in the past please forgive me and just reply with the link to that thread.

Thanks,

Thanks,
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

Thanks for the reply, I have been awaiting a response from someone for some time now. 40MPG is much nicer than my car!!

Thanks again for the info,
Jake
