can you post a photo of the avg in the instrument?
The 56 MPG figure was full tank to full tank, manually calculated and was just for the most recent ride.

My average overall for just over 500 miles (800 KM) so far is 63.3 MPG on the display. That's 26.6 km/l.

I have been riding a little harder on each ride, higher speeds at higher RPMs and more throttle use.

I am also seeing high 50s or low 60s as my average miles per gallon(based on instrument cluster reading and comparing trip counter to fuel purchases). I don't drive it around like a D-bag bouncing it off the rev limiter, and on the flip side I don't really baby it... This is with a nice mix of highway and city style driving. If you're in the 40s something seems askew with either driving style or motorcycle! If i absolutely babied it I don't think it would be difficult to get mid 60s... depending on terrain etc.

The R3's got plenty of torque, and high torque (for a small engine), means lower mpg.

You could trade about 20 to 30% of torque for MPG, by changing the gearing of the bike.

Not recommended when you want to track-race the bike, but good if you just want to save some mpgs, and have the engine rev better for town.
