I purchased a VFR 800X Crossrunner 2017 with 11000 Kilometres on it a week ago.
So i filled up the Tank and reset the Trip Meter A and set of Home.
Over the last week I clocked 375.5 Kilometres and put 17.1 litres of fuel in which equals 21.92/litre.
In English that works out at 234.68 miles and 3.766 imp gallons when converted, which equates to 62.31MPG.
The sort of riding I am doing up and GC1, Motorway speeds110-120 kms, and a day out in the mountains where you are only using 2nd & 3rd gears most of the time and some pottering around.
Most of the write ups I have read say 42mpg-49mpg, it must be the fresh air & the sunshine that we have here in Gran Canaria,
I think that is B----y brilliant.

According to the average fuel indicator on my 2016 Crossrunner on a run from Newcastle to Oliver's Mount Scarborough up l averaged 53 mpg . 216 miles before fuel light came on , dunno what's left in the tank , cos l haven't filled her up yet !

I know where you are in that part of the country as I use to live in Seaham, Murton area on the Dalton Park Shopping Centre.
Most of my riding was through to Whitby, Scarborough and Hull, and North Yorkshire so I know the Area well.!!!
