I know what a RC-51 is, but haven't owned one.

If I did, I wouldn't be overly concerned about the mileage - that's not the point of a RC-51. It's not designed or tuned in any way, shape, or form for mileage. Getting "good" mileage wasn't one of Honda's design goals.

You certainly did your share of modding to it, and did make a significant gain in mileage.

So you reduced the performance, but increased the mileage, with all those mods. For that bike, I don't know if that's a fair trade.

I don't think doing all the mods you suggested to the Superhawk in order to increase the mileage is a fair trade, or productive, either.

There are too many factors against you with a 1000cc motorcycle engine to expect performance and mileage at the same time. Just pick one.
