650 2012/2013 fuel economy (with specs!)

How are you all going on fuel?

Ill add my specs in both MPG for you Yanks, and km/L for us normal folk

Averaging 50.5 Mpg / or 21.5 Km/L.

You can see where ive decided to give her a bit of a thrash... But overall shes bloody awesome on fuel...

Take note of how much 98 octane fuel costs me in Australia! (6.12 per Gal)

I average about 52 mpg (US). Much of this is commuting mileage where I don't get to thrash it. Some of it is where there's no one in front of me, and I do get to flog it hard.

I am at an avg of 49.8mpg based on 2k miles of riding. I am happy as hell with that. $6.12 a gallon? Holy shit bro. I guess I will quiet down paying $3.40 a gallon here in the US for 93 octane.

we're still spending over $4/ gallon here in LA, which makes getting only 40 mpg average kinda tough.

At the very beginning my mileage was about 49mpg but after the inital break-in it improved and now I average 51 mpg. Never less than 50 mpg.
