    Admittedly that was two up for most of the journey and keeping pace with a few friends who were riding solo and on sports bikes. Im not sure how it will fare with fullluggage installed  :021:

    Oh well at least its a hoot to ride - I just love the sound of the V4 through the Akra can  :152:

    First tank saw 50mpg, but now averaging between 45-50mpg as the mileage and speed rises!

    Got to admit I was expecting a lot worse and will be very happy with anything in the 40's with that V4 engine :062:

    As I can't afford the points for speeding I happily tootle around the speed limits most of the time and even with full luggage I can hit around if not over 50mpg so I'm happy enough with consumption.

    48.5 mpg(or 5.7 li/100km) in its first 600 miles.  It should loosen up so I'm expecting an improvement, but...

    On the track at Silverstone it did develop a drinking problem - but I'll forgive it!
