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.

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