Just wondering what you guys get for a full tank of gas...M/Kms. Are the 650 TRV's a pig or pretty reasonable. This would be for a slow rough ride...nothing ball$ out.
That is very close to what I am getting with my new Cat happy 2012 ( a holdover ) TRV 700H1 with 70 miles on it is only getting 15mpg mostly in 2WD H range while my old 09 TRV 550 got 27mpg under those same conditions. I am doubtful that even when it is broken in it will do any better than that and when in L range 4WD will probably be lucky to knock out 10-12mpg. Price I have to pay for the extra power I guess and will need to start carring extra fuel again. Very seldom did we ever need extra fuel on the 550 TRV so never carried it with a 90-95 mile range. All our riding is almost always 2 up also.My old '08 650 TRV was a bit of a "pig" depending on how/where I was riding 'er.
"Simple" trail riding running 20-40mph single rider.....90 miles max.
"Technical" trail/hill/mud riding low'n slow in 4x4 pushing higher rpms....60miles...maybe.
Alot of factors involved. I always carried an extra gas can with either on the machine or in the trailer.
The older TRV's had a 5.5gal/US tank......the newer ones...5.3gal/US.
My new '13 700H1 EFI has burned thru about 1/3 a tank with only 26 miles...but that's still while I'm break'n 'er in. Also lots of L range around my property since it's ALL hills...:lol:
