Versys MPG per Kawasaki Website
Up until recently the USA Kawasaki website listed the MPG fuel economy for the Versys at 53mpg. I noticed today that they now have the 2011 Versys listed at 49mpg. Has there been any changes in the engine/motor function from the pre-2010 to the post-2010 Versys?
Also, some of the older Versys reviews list 89-91-94 fuel octaine recommendations. Now 87 octaine is recommended. Just wondering if the engine/motor settings have been tweeked by Kawasaki with the 2010 make-over?
Is fuel economy/MPG consistant from the first tank onward or is there a slight increase/decrease as the bike is broken in?
