Hello all, l鈥檝e had my 2020 R1250R for about a month now. I鈥檓 65yo (late middle age 馃槑). I鈥檓 not a fast rider anymore, though l give it a handful on appropriate country roads but l seem to be getting extraordinarily good fuel economy. I鈥檝e checked the onboard and trip computer regularly and done manual calculations 4 or 5 times and l get 4.1 litres per 100 km every time (55 mpg US). Are others getting this ? Last few years l was on a KTM 790 Duke and was v happy with 4.5 litres/100 km so l鈥檓 amazed with the R ! Looking forward to any responses to this. Cheers from Oz

I have a 2012 Camhead, different motor, so maybe apples and oranges, but get between 56-58 mpg US. This is based on the bikes computer since manual calculations are difficult because there isn't a definite "full" point. My riding is typically cruising backroads, with little stop & go traffic. If I end up on the highway or city traffic for a tankful I'd be looking at well below 50 mpg

That seems about right, I've had my 1200 for 5 years and it's been 66mpg (UK). I couldn't believe it myself when I got the bike so did some runs measuring the fuel, miles run and its still 66, fantastic for a 1200.

My 2020 R1250R averaged 54 or so MPG on a 3000 road trip last year, California to Colorado and back. Normal riding is 54-56 MPG. Fast riding with friends and my work commute low 50's. If kept under 55 miles per hour over 60 MPG is possible.

Man, I have to back off. My 2015 R1200R is 'only' getting 50mpg - I must be whacking it too hard... :unsure:

Of course, this is mostly local riding - have not done an extended trip at steady freeway speeds yet. I am overdue!

You can go to fuelly.com and research various average mpg (mainly US I think) for many vehicles. Once you start tracking using it, it gives you a very accurate average over time, as you enter the gallons purchased and your ODO reading.


Right now there's only 1 R1250R logging mileage, but there are 6 RS' if you care.

Just finishing up a couple thousand kilometres in the European Alps and the fuel usage is indicating 4.5l/100km! R1250GS with pillion and Vario panniers with topcase. Go figure 鈥

That's around 60mpg which is roughly what I get out of my R1250RT. I used to average around 66mpg on the R1200R LC

Computer says 41. Full Ti Akra exhaust with Rapidbike evo. Very heavy wrist. I also do a 60:40 ratio of 91 octane and 98 octane (Sunoco). Runs like a raped ape.

I'm not a fast rider. R1250RS gets 55-60 mpg (US) and once did 65. If I spend a couple weeks on short trips in town, it still gets 50-52.

On my 2020 R1250R with factory side cases and factory top case, I average 50-55 mpg. My highest ever tankful was 60 mpg. Unfortunately, I also have to use premium fuel. 馃槓 Overall, I am quite satisfied with my R1250R. 馃檪
