    • Dont push trottle fast,but use the torque of the engine and at high gear or when U are shifting 4-5000 rpm at moste . . . . 5000 rpm speed 130km/h for top limited speed on highway in our country . . this picture is proof that U can enjoy dinamic ride and save some money . . I ride Versys 1000,2014 model year . .

    • I find that at 130km/h @ 5000RPM my range is considerably lower.

    • Yes it is if U drive a lot at this speed . . I use highway little as posibile . . range is from 200 to 350 km and it depens how U drive . .

    • I'd like to know what the best continuous RPM (highway) would be for best range. Thanks!

    • I gues 4000 . . .

    • I have asked that same question about most of my vehicles, but have never taken the time to figure it out. I did go down two teeth on the rear sprocket, which helps a lot at highway speeds. Keeps me just below that little buzzy spot.

    • That's good to know. Might do that mod then. Thanks!

    • The 1000 still has plenty of power the rest of the time.

    • Just ride it like you stole it. If we worried about the mpg we wouldn't be riding a bike. Worrying about mpg takes the fun out of bikes. Get a small car if you're concerned about fuel economy

    • Mine gets much better mileage than my F-150 so I'm good, but when you are riding all day it is nice to not have to stop often for gas...love the 5.5 gallon tank!
