best mileage

hi.
recently bought a Honda 250 fore sight at a cheap price, and am doing a 28mile each way commute each way when weather permits.
this is 95% highway riding, and I stick to 50mph where I can without holding up traffic(much is single carriage way).
I have managed to increase first tank mpg from a surprising 94 to a tantalizing 99.4 with a few aero mods. that's 270miles per 12l tank up to brim.
that's imperial mpg.

next tank will be 100+. see me on fuelly.com...

I am aiming for 120mpg, but will need lots of fairing to get it.

My favorite bike is Hero Honda Diesel 400. It gives a super cool mileage of 30 kmpl & comes within the price range of 1.5 lac.

Fantastic report. I can't wait to go electric and streamlined. I have been riding back roads at 50 mph successfully on a PCX150 scooter and getting 95 mpgUS so 300 mpge should be realistic in a similar vehicle with some improved aeros. But I would need a solid 80 mile range to get up and back in 40F weather. 72v/ 100A packs would barely make it. $3500 in batteries! And the 65 mph top speed of the PCX is nice as it allows a short, 3 mile hop on the interstate each way which saves me from riding the long way around. My boss is probably not ready to start letting anyone plug in every day even though I would gladly pay him back in cash for the $.80 a day I would be using at his end. Even though 95 mpgUS is outstanding fuel economy with either the PCX or my CBR250R, I could save another $300 per year running electric. Enough to pay for a replacement pack in 10 years so barely a break even but very cool and "green" high tech. And gas is sure to go up faster than electricity in the near future.

Batteries Cost

Yes, you are correct 80 range is a stretch for any electric bike today, and the battery's are way too expensive. It's hard to justify financially.

You're getting awesome fuel economy without streamlining. Seems like streamlining your current bike might be the best ROI.

I haven't but other people have. One guy and his buddy, both average sized males, rode cross country two up on the CBR250R with camping gear. 4 consecutive 1000 km days!
