Fuel range and consumption on the LC
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:41:12 am »
Those of you that has done some distance; would like to know how the consumption compares with the 1190. Your input will most probably help me to make up my mind. :deal:

I  just managed 340km on 19.3L (5.6L/100km avg) and easy get under 6L/100. Was mostly freeway riding to Jozi and back with an average speed about 120, with actual road speeds in the 130-160 range cruising.
On my old 1200 that would have me nursing it to the nearest fuel pump by 280km (once manged to run the tank dry in 210km  >:D )

Hi Guys,

I tested the R1200GS LC for the Economy Run, which is a National event held every year and run the same way that the car economy run is.

I returned excellent figures from the LC and can report that it is way better than the old model and going back in the records, now is slightly better than what the 1190 tested was. (4.84 Lt/100Km)

Bear in mind that the figures are got are riding in an "Economy" Run way i.e. tucked under the screen and light and even on the throttle, though not totally so as we do in an event (dumb stuff like riding with your left hand on the throttle etc.)
The bike also only had 236 Kms on it so was as tight as a sharks naught in a powerdive!

Figure was 4.62 L/100 Kms, I thin on a motor with more mileage in the event it will be around 4.2 Lt/100Kms

As I said these are testing figures for an economy event so they don't necessarily reflect the true consumption. Although the route I use is taxing (Past Lanseria, Kromdraai to Hekpoort Rd, Tracking station Rd, Hartees rd then Santa Barbara back past Lanseria to garage by off ramp) Those that don't those roads - moersa lot of hills!

However a good indication of how a bike does in the real world is go to this link and browse by model, it is real life fill ups by peeps all over the world.

I can confirm that over the first 7000km I have averaged 16.3 km/l. This is mostly daily commute in rush hour traffic.

Over the last 900km, mine is averaging 5.9L/100km
This from commuting, 120km gravel, and pushing the bike to over 200km/H a few times.

This appears realistic to me, I never get the claimed consumption.

Ek kry so tussen 320 en 340 op 'n tenk. Spoep op die oop pad is dan so 140/150km per uur.

Hang maar alles af van hoe ver jy daai grip draai.

Ek het nog n tenk petrol mooi gery en het 18.385 lt gebruik op 350 km = 19.037 km/l

Die LC raak nou ligter op brandstof as wat die Triumph Explorer is.
