VeeVee she sure likes her whisky! (mpg)
So Finally my veevee versys had a long trip. About 800km down to the south and up again.
It has about 2000km and I am squeezing it at times.
With two up and some top case + fuel tank luggage (58kg+85kg+16kg) on a straight line was very hard to go past 9000rpm.
But I found out it has a lower mileage than my honda VTI! ahahaha
between 7000rpm and 8000rpm/8500rpm (160-185 km/h, 99.4-114 miles on the dashboard)I get a very low mileage. Calculated about 9.5 lt/100km (25 mpg US) and at about 6000rpm (120-140 km/h, 74.5-87 miles on the dashboard) something around 5.8 lt/100km (40 mpg US)
Is this the overall acceptable mileage for two up and luggage at these rpm ranges ?
What would I expect with one up?
