In today's world of crisis; economy, financial, job, and fuel to name a few, getting a motorcycle that is fuel efficient has taken a higher priority than what it would have been a few years ago.
Many people nowadays don't buy a motorcycle based solely on the engine size, speed, looks, price and brand name. Fuel consumption is something that you pay attention to, especially with record high oil barrel prices from last year still fresh in your mind.
But not all manufacturers show true mpg (kpl) figures. And what figures they do show on fuel consumption are usually achieved under ideal circumstances, like in a lab.
The only way of finding out what the true fuel consumption of a motorcycle is, is talking to an owner of the motorcycle you are interested in.
Here's a web site that does more or less that. Motorcycle Fuel Consumption is a listing, produced by motorcycle owners, of what real fuel consumption their own motorcycle achieve. The site lists motorcycles by year, manufacturer and model.
You can find out how many liters are used to ride 100 kilometers, and what rpm is achieved to ride at 100 kph. You can also search for a specific motorcycle.
Obviously, for this to work, we all need to pitch in. If you know the fuel consumption of your bike, why not add it to the growing list?
