I'm not.  It just happens to be very good, so thought I'd rub some salt in the wound  8)

Ah ok, you have been enjoying it then ;)

With super unleaded you will find you get a little extra mileage, but obviously pay the price at the pump anyway, so swings and roundabouts.

Great bikes though, it handles superbly and gets up to speed bloody quickly - you have to be careful overtaking on the motorway as you look down and suddenly see big numbers.

LOL... I've filled it twice since I picked it up, this morning was the last one at it took £17 so it's not that bad, but filled it just as the flashy flashy came on and filled it on the centre stand. I do love riding it though, its light, can almost get through as narrow gaps and the TDM and it bloody flies!

Lol, welcome to the world of litre sports bikes ;)

To be fair, it wasn't brimmed when you got it, probably still had around 20-30 miles if the tank had been full, but yeah, if you've been 'enjoying' it, it will drink a tad quicker.

Normally you should get around 40-50 miles or so out of the first bar, and then it drops each bar around 20 miles if I remember rightly.  On the motorway you'll notice it will be a lot better, but hooning round back roads and you'll drain it quick.

The ZRX is shockingly even more thirsty  :-X
