My '09 averages 42-44 mpg's. I've been as low as 40 many times, and barely hit 50 twice in 6,500+ miles.Similar comparisions come out once or twice a year in different publications. I am always amazed that they all seem to report low gas mileage from the KLR. In this case averaging 38.8 mpg!
How are these guys riding them? I get about 55 mpg. There are a couple of other threads here that discuss milage. I don't think I've seen anybody here report anything less than mid-40's mpg.
