Crosstourer Test - Motorradfahrer
« on: March 17, 2012, 01:13:30 PM »
Well, the Germans like the Crosstourer, well at least the testers from Motorradfahrer magazine!

The fuel consumption at a steady 130kph was 6.1 litres/100km.  :002:  Better than Honda claims, and better than the VFR1200F!

During the 'Touring Test' the Crosstourer's fuel consumption varied between 4.5 and 5.0 litres/100 km - WOW!  :046: :046: :046:

At 5.0 litres/100km that is a maximum range of 430km!  :062:

Overall test fuel consumption 6.1 litres/100km - Range of 352km - Magic!  :082: :082: :082:

What was that about it being thirsty  :261:

Generally, they like it, lots!  :046: :046: :046:

6.1L average is exactly what i got out of it too ... and this two up, and somewhat itchy on the gas incl. some part on german autobahn with 230km'm max .... That is perfect for me  :305:
Around the world and back ... driven Honda motorbikes all over Europe, Australia, NewZealand, Japan, Russia .....

Not sure about your conclusion as the "Motorrad" just recently had a test about travel enduros. This magazine has widely seen as the reference in the German market even if many bikers arguing that the mag seams to be owned by the blue/white from Munich. Well after reading the editorial there was no need to read the test as I knew who will make it to the top.  :157:

...and yes :430: I was right, the German bike still seems to be the authority in the marked and don't get me wrong, I'm not sharing this opinion. My biggest surprise was the critics at the Honda cardan which they've seen a "lift" effect when accelerating. I specially paid attention on this effect but disagree but wonder how you feel with the cardan in your bike?

Well, there is no reason to waste my money buying this mag.. and I knew it, that German bikes always seen as the reference... I should have know it better... :138:

The report that I read didn't compare the Crosstourer to the GS, it just said it was a very good bike - I'd don't think the German journalist could say it was better than the GS - after all, he wants to keep his job!
