I canít help but feel a little disappointed with the fuel consumption of my GS so far.
As a comparison between my V-Strom650, a heavier bike with panniers, my XMAX which is also a little heavier but with almost identical engine size and power, and the G310.... the VStrom regularly gave me 25 to 27 km/l, the XMAX 38 to40km/l, but as far as I can tell, Iím getting about 33km/l from the GS.
This is on EXACTLY the same
Iím roads (a mixture of twisty mountain roads with the occasional short straight) and hardly ever at more than 6000rpm!
I might add that the XMAX is considerably quieter and faster and smoother! So for now Iím a little disappointed with the Ďsuperiorí German engineering experience. Itís just as well it looks so good!
