I am with you on this one. The first 8.000kms I was trying hard to keep the fuel consumption low. But lately I am keeping the rev above 5.000 at all times, gearing up around 7500-8000. I know it consumes more that way, but I enjoy the bike even more.
The bike is powerful at all revs from 2.500 up I think. But its real fun lies in the upper end.
Well, 33 years old, no race bike ever owned. I try my best to make up for it with what I have
And even when riding like this, the average doesnt go past 7L/100km. Fine enough if you ask me.
