Fuel Consumption
« on: February 20, 2012, 01:14:16 PM »
Hi,
I'm also at the Varadero International Forum, and I've been reading the post of one of the Administrators of the forum that has been testing the bike.
He also talks about the high fuel consumption.

"The smooth performace also poses a huge disadvantage ...: the economy meter (set to measure the average fuelconsumption) points out at a staggering 8 liters per 100 km and that, even at highway speeds,is just to much. That is over 1 to 12,5! While the Crosstourer appears to be born to perform as an comfy long distance tourer in comfort, even with 2 up."

And now the petrol price is going up and up ...

It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...

Best estimates for a fully run in machine is 45 miles to the imperial gallon, so a range to dry of about 200 miles.

To be honest, IMHO, there's not much between capacity and range for all the mainstream bikes in this Adventure-Tour segment (Tenere, GS, eXplorer), so I don't understand why everyone makes such a big deal of it? If tank range is everything then the Stelvio, GSA, Pan or RT will suit their needs better!

Hey guys,
According to a spanish tester that writes in SoloMoto magazin, he drove 202km with 10 liters; thats 5l/100km.
How is posible to make so big differences between testers?  :435:

We'll have to wait until one of us could test the CT in normal conditions (real life) to know the answer ...  so hurry up !! 

I'll be waiting !!

It would not astonish me if the 5l for the 200km was true ... hopefully it is  :018:  He may have been driving the bike in more moderate revs - filling up tank at the end of the day, so having a clear reading there.

On the other hand if you drive em like crazy (as seen on some vids) and look "momentarily" on the dash readings that sure could make a big difference. 

5 to 6 liters per 100km - now that would be perfekt!

Hey it is all relative - I will be move to the Crosstourer from a 900 Hornet with 16.5 litre tank which at best I get 250km from - of course it could do better if I rode it differently  :001:
For me the tank size is fine - I ride with a mate that has just bought the new Ducati Multistrada and when we tour we also do top ups when we stop as some of the guys riding with us have even less economy than I do
I would expect the crosstourer will return better distance as it runs in I found that with the hornet

Mark says it best "I’d say 50mpg is much more likely if you rode it like you’d paid your own money for it. The tank is 21.5 litres, addressing all the gripes about the VFR1200"

For some of us, all the speculation will soon be over.   :046: :046: :046:

And when we are riding the bike, we won't give a hoot about the range - we'll just ride, ride, ride... :306:  ..with a big  :001: on our face  :062:

Apparently taken from Motociclismo, but copied from a member posting on Ash's web site:

"Non DTC version:

1. Speed limited to 210km/h
2. 90-130km/h in top gear = 3.992 seconds (GS=3.682s & Tenere=4.725s)
3. Fuel range at a steady 130km/h = 324.65km"

... I'm too lazy to work out the range in miles, but looks like roughly 200 miles at a steady 80 mph?
