  • H2 SX SE fuel economy

    Today on my local loop ride I tried using cruise control and generally stayed off the throttle to see what the range is like. Average speed over a full tank was about 75 mph, with a few passes that went a bit over that.

    Got 301km/185miles out of 16.75l, which meant 2.25l left when I stopped for gas.

    Mileage works out to 51mpg of her majesty's or 5.54l per 100 communists, and about 43mpg ronald mcdonald style

    ​​It's pretty good considering the potential of the thing, and it's ma kawasaki's reasoning for the smallish 19l tank

    Interesting, I am surprised. Would be interested to know what your low mpg is when running hard.

      That's some funny stuff right there, Gareth

        With just a twist of the wrist those mileage numbers will go to hell!

              I'd say any kind of sporty riding it drinks like a Zed with pipe and shims, except the 3l smaller tank means less fun range than Zed

                My H2 when im running 91 octane gasoline with spirited riding I'm lucky to get about a hundred and twenty miles out of a tank... it's about four and a half US gallon tank. When I'm running E85 that could drop to well below a hundred miles. But one of the many differences between the H2 and the H2 SX is the H2 has much lower compression which is a big contributor to it's shity gas mileage.

                  I cant believe you actully put gas milage and H2 in the same sentance.....i would think you would have to amputate your right hand to even get double digits

                      Ha... It's not that hard to get low 30's. But gas mileage is not the point of that bike
