    I was paying attention to ECO yesterday when I was riding with a flashing single bar. Other than a KTM with a 10L tank (!!) I always seem to have the shortest riding range in my group.....even making sure to fill all the way to the neck.

    Just the fact that there is an eco indicator on a motorcycle is a little ridiculous considering bikes get better mpg than most cars.

    I mean, the fact that the MT-09 has 33% better fuel economy over the MT-10 while having nearly the same every day performance (for me) helped me pick the MT-09. But I don't pay attention to the indicator at all and still manage mid 40s.

    Until you’re into F-trip and your not sure how far the gas station is... then it’s how fast can I go while staying in eco mode!

    There's an exception to every rule. The gas station lottery is one.

    I reset my average MPG at the beginning of this week and checked it this morning and I'm sitting at 33.6 MPG. My commute to class is about 2 miles so I take advantage of the few miles I get to ride every day.

    Did about 59 US MPG on the highway home once following a friends car in limp home mode. kept my distance from him so i did not draft.
    Could do better if a wanted...............so boring i am never gonna try it again i think............. (stuck at 50-55 mph on the highway is not fun)

    This engine does not like being in the lower rpms to get high MPG and is clearly not ment for it.

    Buying this bike for good MPG, is like buying a Porsche 911 with a trailer hitch to tow a small trailer for your garden waste.

    18.5 km/litre open road on the 09, 15.8 from my wife's car. Not much in it, until you consider how fast the bike is going while doing that.
