New generation engine mpg
« on: May 16, 2020, 05:02:05 PM »
Hi Guys

Must say that I well impressed with the Second Generation Tiger 800 engine. It is so much more responsive and smoother than my 2013 Tiger :152:

Plus I getting 65 plus mpg.I got 66.5 mpg today over 180 miles , this was achieved on low speed runs. I used to get no more than 55mpg on other Tiger.

Safe Riding  guys  :123:

Are you going by the display or by actually calculating fuel usage yourself?

I only say cause the display on mine is not remotely accurate, says on average 64mpg but real world it's about 55mpg, which is still pretty good to be fair for a bike of this weight and power.

My 2018Xr doesn't show mpg, unlike my 'old' 2013 Roadie. So I work out out the old fashioned way 😊

Something that did shock me this week was that I managed 272 miles on a tank with one bar remaining.
I put this down to riding very cautiously under the current conditions.
I would normally only get 230 miles.
The bike is a 17 plate XRT with a 17 tooth front sprocket.
Happy times...

 Just got 66.6mpg, so not a fluke 😀

Mine is equally economical.  I do tend to use the mileage remaining display on the dash, & I'd say it was accurate, with no "reserve".  I did run it down to a mile or so remaining, whilst hunting for fuel, and it took the tanks advertised capacity to fill it.

On my 19 XRT, after a year it's at a true 61.8mpg (UK) average from records I've kept of every fill from new. The bike's computer shows 65.4mpg so not particularly accurate as far as that measurement is concerned.

Am impressed with these figures and glad to see Triumph has addressed it.
