Having had the bike for about 1 year now, I've done a back of the napkin running cost calculation and it sits at about AUD 0.27/km


This is based on about 5000km, insurance, rego, petrol, lubricants and service for the year, not including the original purchase amount, depreciation or any of the modifications that I have added.


It's a small price to pay per km for a big grin :)

Big incentive for me to ride it more, if I do 8000km the cost goes down to about AUD 0.20/km ;)

Mine seems to avg out to around 14 cents per mile with 8500 miles ridden so far in the first 3.5 months. Fuel costs are just under 6 cents per mile ( 8500 miles, 60mpg, 142 gallons at $3.50, total cost $497 ) insurance is $250 per year, registration around $100 per year, service so far is about $300 = $1147 / 8500 = 13.49 cents per mile in US dollars. Not including purchase price etc. Aside from the 600 mile and 6000 mile service the bike has used NO oil, chain lube and cleaning is less than $10 so far so not worth worrying about.
