    115 hp FZ-09 45 mpg
    160 hp FZ-10 35 mpg
    170 hp Tuono V4 32 mpg

    These numbers can easily be verified at Fuelly.com

    Bigger fuel tanks generally mean heavier bikes and reduced mpg.

    Good luck finding a fast bike that takes you 200-250 miles per tank. 120 miles is very typical. Plenty of new FZ-10 owners initially complain about that range, but learn to accept the trade off. If that’s a deal breaker, don’t buy the bike.

    I ended up with the F700GS for other reasons. MPG was not one of them, just a bonus.
    I can get 4.7-4.9L/100klms on my S1000R if cruising on the highway and over 300klms to a tank. I don't normally ride like that but 380klms North from me is an amazing road but it's all highway to get there.

    Maybe my idea is a little far fetched in wanting a do it all bike. I'm also looking at the KTM Super Duke GT but it's very expensive here and reliability is a concern

    Only mentioning my S1000R as other bikes were mentioned vs power. Somehow BMW were able to achieve good power yet be great on fuel

    Pictures for proof:

    I wish the MT-10 was more efficient.
    But let's face it, it just wasn't any focus on it from Yamaha

    Not sure if it's a quirk of the crossplane engine but my 09 R1 was a thirsty bugger too

    If you reset the ECU, al the mappings created bij the bike are reset. After this you drive the bike with a nice response on about 50 m/h for about 50 miles. So you remap the ECU.
    The average use will be a lot less. I am from Holland and i drive 120km/hour on cruise control in the 5th gear, and drive about 1 liter on 16,5 km.

    This way you can remap the ECU, the same you can do after an Exhaust change.

    I'm loving the mpg on the MT10.

    I have moved from an Aprilia V4 and that was a real thirsty bike compared to the MT.

    Mpg is not a consideration when I am bike shopping, but am pleasantly surprised that I am returning 40.6 mpg in just over 4k miles.

    I'm getting an average of 39.3 mpg(UK) on the dash for the last 1500 miles since the Re-map which includes a trip to the Isle Of Man with quite a few hard rides on the unrestricted roads, I'm happy enough with that as this bike is the most fun bike that I have ever ridden and also can excel at light touring.

    My old Daytona 650 was worse on fuel with about 35 mpg when I dared to work it out.


    As for why the Cross plane engine uses more than a conventional IL4, my thought is that the pumping losses in the engine are higher, that's the air being pushed back and forth under the pistons. In a normal IL4 it just moves between the inner and outer pairs.

    I went touring 1200miles alongside a Tuono V4, and at every pit stop the MT-10 had guzzled more fuel.
    Not by a lot by still noticable. The Tuono even has a bit bigger fuel tank.

    ^ Purfect and Direct comparisons are quiet difficult. As One bike may be accelerated and braked harder than the other etc which affects.

    Here’s a flip side; I’ve got an Aprilia 650 Pegaso it returns the same mpg as my MT-10. The 650 has 50 bhp and is slow opposed to the MT-10s 160bhp warp factor acceleration. The MT is what it is and improves a little as the mileage increases on the engine.
    Yamaha MT-10, > 13k miles | 96 Aprilia Pegaso (Re-Built) 655, > 85k | 09 Kawasaki KLX 450R , W/Ends & Other Off-road... | Last / Previous: Yamaha MT-09 7k / Triumph Tiger 955i, 22k, 01 Yamaha YZ 250, 00 Suzuki DRZ 400E & 95 DR 350S ?, 91 Honda CBR 600FM 11k, & 86 Honda VF500F2 12k | 89 Kawasaki KMX 200 & many other 2 strokes...

    My 2012 V4 hybrid Tuono/rsv4 had a 17l tank, same as the SP and would have the fuel light flashing by 90 miles at the most.
    Sometimes as low as 70 miles.

    It was a special Bike and highly modified.

    As I said, mpg doesn’t concern me, but it is nice to have a bit more range from the SP

    Went for a blast to Scarborough yesterday, got sick of mate harping on about how his Yam tracer was getting 60odd mpg! Asked what mine was and was shocked I was getting 50.5mpg? Should of took a pic as I've never seen it that high before. I think as long as you plan out your routes and know where the filling stations are there's no need to worry
