1000RR gas milage?

I was curious what kind of gas milage you guys are getting on your new blades after a disussion with a buddy of mine. I understand some of you are still breaking it in, so it will be crusing milage instead of WFO throttle milage. Also, could anybody tell me if milage gets better or worse over time on a new bike, like how an engine usually isn't at full potential untill 2000-3000 miles or so. Thanks

Depends on the octane you use.

98 octane for the first tank and I'm getting about 15km to a litre, most of that was on the freeway or out in the country.

My fuel light came on tonight for the second tank (98 octane) and most of that was in the city, with about 11 km/litre.

For reference

KM/Litre -> Miles/US Gallons
KM/Litre * 0.432 = Miles/US Gallons

Miles/US Gallons -> KM/Litre
Miles/US Gallons * 2.363 = KM/Litres

KM -> Miles
KM * 0.622 = Miles

Miles -> KM
Miles * 1.609 = KM

Litres -> US Gallons
Litres * .264 = US Gallons

US Gallons -> Litres
US Gallons * 3.78 = Litres
