CBR300R Fuel Mileage (Multiple Threads)

I am still in the break-in period of my bike (at around 400 miles currently) and my gas milage has been 61mpg. Majority of the miles has been freeway/highway riding. What is everyone else getting?

What is your city riding like? Do you go easy or hammer it more often when you get the opportunity?

I'm just over 170 with my gear and the last couple fills I calculated 62 and 70 MPG. Good mix between HW(not interstate) and city driving, and not going crazy on the throttle.

On my first 250 mile trip I got 70MPG cruising at 70MPH with no city riding.

Is that what most of your riding is like, no city riding?

Yep, theres not many cities in New Zealand and they are mostly little ones!
I live in a town of 2000 people with the nearest city 160km away. I do a mix of inter-provincial long rides (typically 400km minimum) to sunday blasts of around 200km plus the odd track day.
My CBR250 was the best on gas tho, I once got 100MPG!

Pretty consistent for me.

Just did another tank with 58 MPG again.

City driving with a lot of stopping and starting in Bangkok.

I haven't quite yet paid attention to it, but I know that I have filled my tank twice and im up to about 360 miles now. Started with 1 mile on it. So simple math I guess its about 180 or so per tank right now. Which is better than a car but not what Honda claims on the webpage. I don't slam the throttle back and ride it like I stole it. Im pretty conservative and I do a lot of city riding. Not much hwy yet.
