What can we expect fuel economy to be like on the Ninja H2?
Around how many liters of fuel would you want/need?

I'd be happy if the fuel consumption could get into the 50s. 55 mpg would be amazing. I'm thinking that the Ninja H2 will at least get mid 40s though.

I think my avg MPG is around 27. Haven't looked in awhile and haven't reset it since new ~3000 miles now. with the stock low gearing it was difficult to stay out of the boost indicators to see what cruising mileage was. I put Brocks 19t on and it will make a difference just haven't checked ...thanks for reminding me. :) I use Chevron or Shell 89 without issue.

In a word, "dismal". Lifetime average on mine with about 2400 km on it is around 7.4 L/100 km (which is about 32 mpg US for the American folks). Every other bike I own uses less and my car uses less.

This powertrain is not set up for efficiency. The supercharger is working regardless of whether the throttle is open or shut, which is a killer parasitic loss. The lack of an intercooler means the compression ratio is low to control knock. It's geared short. It runs rich.

It does what it does.

Been tracking mine from day 1 (sad I know !)

2,300 miles - average 36.8 mpg (UK), best 45.2mpg

Of course, as anyone who owns a H2 knows, it's not miles per gallon that matter, it's smiles per gallon ...................

After 60 miles your arse will feel like you have been gang raped and at a 100 miles it will resemble a female chimpanzees arse , like you have a red vinyl covered barstool seat stuck to your rear .
I'm trying to get it down to 20 MPG so i can get off it quicker .

I've managed two 600 mile days on mine - and still been able to walk afterwards !

I heard the organisers of the Ironman endurance events were thinking about a 100 mile ride on an H2 in between the ten mile swim and the thirty mile cross country run but thought it too extreme.

Pebble35 I'm a little worried about what sort of practice you had to put in to enable your bum hole to withstand such abuse !

Average arount 8 litres per 100 ks, I don't have any problems with the seat as every ride I do is no less than 350ks and its mostly twisty stuff.I don't worry about the petrol or the tyres mines done 12,000 ks and its eaten 1 set of bridgestones the stock ones and 2 sets of metzler M7RR but **** its lots of fun and that's why I love it.

Last week I made 5 passes on Elvington's 2-mile runway at the Straightliners meeting - starting the first run with a virtually full tank.

When I got the bike home (in a van) I put it back to road-legal and rode it to the filling station a couple of miles from my home, the total mileage since the last fill was 22.

I put 9 litres in to brim the tank again. That's 1.98 UK gallons and the fuel consumption works out at approximately 11mpg.

Only 5 miles of that was at full throttle. Good job I didn't buy an H2 for it's economy. :)

I have two certified 'Iron Butt' (1,000 miles in less than 24 hours) behind me - one on a KTM 990 Adventure and the other on a 125 scooter .......... So the H2 actually seems pretty comfortable :laugh:

well after asking about the MPG I took my [email protected] for the first ride last Friday. Took it to familiar roads in mid Wales with 2 mates. I was taking it quite easy but after 100 miles I did open it up a few times.

my first ride for 5 months and did just over 200 miles. I don't know why anyone has any issues as it's quiet comfy.

Managed 32MPG. Much less than the 45-55MPG my Blade gave me but I never bought a H2 for good MPG
