I cant see how they would ruin the mpg on a new bike. The last gen 800 was a great improvement on the 2012 i had. I would reflash and bike as they always run and go better.

You can research the subject, but to reduce Nox emissions Euro 5 will make your engine less efficient on the power, thermal efficiency, that's why all makers increase cc to retain power generation and 10% more cc equals more fuel because more air, it's physics nothing is free !

The only thing I would point out is that you said there was 250 miles on it, if that is correct then the engine was set on its running in map. They change the map to normal at its 600 mile service.

I would think rather opposite, that they give you the full beans after no !?

Was thinking they don't want it running lean straight away.

Could be that's right, but my experience is it takes rather 5-7000km for the engine to be really in optimal MPG and difference is max 0.3l/100km

Running in map? At first service my dealer said there is no such thing, at least on Triumphs.

I am getting 61 mpg by the on board comp.. Much the same as my 800. But my hooligan days are long gone...

Well thats what my dealer told me, plus the warning you can get when over revving During the running in. Also mentioned in my 600 mile service notes. Mines now on 61mpg as well, happy with that.

Yes, hence why I mentioned mileage.  I did same roads and riding style to try to get a comparison, but by no means accurate.  itll always be different for everybody, but its good to hear early reports of 60 + mpg
I think it would could fair better on long distances than the 800 due to that torque.

If there was a running I map, it didnt restrict rpm  :430: so just fueling?

I can well believe the new engine suits off road more, much like a twin or a single does.  Its definitely got some grunt in it low down.


If anybody has ridden the tenere 700(its ace), engine doesnt feel dissimilar, though its fair to say it keeps it power band for longer, prehaps thats the T plane triple magic trick? :300:
