Real World FZ-10 MPG

I am inches away from buying an FZ-10. But, I wanted to get a sense from actual riders the real world MPG for the bike. I'm going to do normal mountain cornering on the bike but, I also take multi-thousand mile trips and the stated 4.5 gallon or so tank at 30MPG seems like it just doesn't work for that. So, for folks who've done highway riding at 80-90, is 30mpg the real number? Or have you seen something different?

High 20's to low 30's. I have heard rumors of mid to high 30's. Even heard of one chap that said 42 mpg. I have yet to see that, or even close to that.

Fuel mileage is not the -10's forte.

Expect around 100/120 miles to the tank before looking for a pump. (spirited riding).

sounds consistent

I went to a dealer to see another bike. They had an FZ-10. I rode it...loved it. But, my intent for the bike is commuting and then longer trips, 1-2k per trip. I tend not to ride highways but more backroads.

I'd rather not have range anxiety overshadowing the ride.

Sounds like I'm better off settling on a Multistrada or such...though, less my style of bike.

Nice, looking forward to hearing your feedback, should be a lot of fun throwing it around on those commutes especially moving to faster lanes and the overall swerving involved in commuting (or at least my commuting)

My commute involves riding corners around farmland and afternoons up Canyon to Nederland. So, yeah, my commute and lunch is fun.

What mileage is everyone getting after breaking in your fz-10? Seems like most people are are getting mid 20 mpg to 30s.

I rode my new FZ10 from the dealers show room to my home 478 mi. Mostly highway miles of 70-80+ mph. Got between 36-38mph in A mode. That's really not bad. When I hit the last 100 miles I was hitting country to mtn roads. This is where the FZ10 starts to eat the gas. When I pulled into my drive way the average mpg reading I believe was 36.7mpg. I have a write up here in new member section. I'm one of those get my bike into six gear right away riders. Since I have over 1700 mi on my FZ10 and ride mostly in my mtns. My average mpg read out stays between 34.9-35.0 mpg. But that's me. This is not a high mileage FZ like my GEN1 was, 44-57mpg with that bike. That's about as honest as I can observe on my FZ10 gas mileage so far. It seems to get better gas mileage at high highway speeds ,which is usually the oppisit from my other bikes, strange? Might improve slighty with a reflash after my full exhaust mods?
