    I was as surprised as you, then today I started looking for some official mileage figures and look what I found...

    https://www.zigwheels.com/newbikes/Royal-Enfield/Himalayan/sleet#features


    It's virtually spot on @ 29Km Per Litre.

    And it says highway riding will be up to 35! Now that I need to see to believe.

    I'm double pleased !!

    I will verify at the next fill-up as well.


    Cheers,

    cliffa.

    I think 29.34 KM per litre is more like 83mpg Cliffa. Still bloody good though.

    Dohhh, :confused::confused: yes I forgot to convert back to MPG :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:. So it does 133KM per gallon which equates to 83 Mpg. as you so rightly say.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I'm selling it...

    ;)

    Another update. I refilled after another 325Km, and it took 9.87 litres which equates to 32.93 Kmpl or 93Mpg. I knew it handles well, but have just read that Harris Performance designed the frame & geometry which explains it !! (They have now been bought out by RE).

    I'm up to 622 Km now. soon be overtaking some of those 961 boys :)

    Cheers,

    cliffa.

    Mind you I am cracking up some KM's - I'm up to about 670 now. Not bad for February / March.
