Fuel consumption

Had my 910 R decated a few weeks ago , with orignal Mv corse midpipe , ecu and cans.
Driving in town and small roads (no highway).
it used 17 liters on 147km , which means 11.5 liter
My driving style is hmmm.... bang on most of the time
Interested to know your bikes consumption.

Hi there,
I only recently picked mine up so was interested to know the consumption too. At the last refill, it used approximately 8 litres per 100 klm's (just over).
Mine is absolutely stock as far as the engine & pipes are concerned, cat still in place.
Sounds like better economy than yours, but is it good? I have no idea.

Maybe I need to stop fluffing around and really open her up some more!!!

As reported in earlier posts, mine - stock standard - did circa 300km on a tank on the open road at legal speeds, so between 6 and 7l per 100. Around town, mostly commuting in traffic, the fuel warning light comes on between 180 and 190km with 3 l still left in the tank, so about 8l per 100.
Will get it tuned soon, perhaps it's running too lean, although it feels pretty good.

Now riding KTM 1290SA; previously BMW K1200R, Brute 910R, Brute750S, BMWR1150GS, Honda VFR800, YamahaXJ650, Honda400/4, HondaCB360 and more

This don't seem right,I don't think anyone has got 300km to a 19 litre tank. On a MV anyway.

No rubbish there, mate. I was as surprised as you are, having had a 750 Brute before which returned 200km to a tank at best. In fact, on that long trip with the 910R, I stopped every 200km to fuel up out of paranoia, only to have to put in 12 or 13l. There were long periods on that trip sitting on 5-6000rpm.
As I wrote, consuption is higher around town, more like 8l per 100km.
I run the 910R on 98 Octane fuel.
As I said, perhaps it's running lean which we'll check.

My 750 got around 150-160km per tank, after a short while I put in Brad Black's EPROM (and leaned the mixture trim at the same time as it was running rich) - it gets around 190 since.

The oil sheiks love the Brutales. They start grinning everytime one gets started. If you are worried about fuel consumption and saving tires from destruction I would not get a Brutale.
