Why would these only get 57 mpg est. My 155 yami gets 70 to 85 mpg, is it just the fuel injection.

It could be a different final drive (lower ratio),,,common among manufacturers to give the bike better acceleration making the impression on the rider of more power it also could be a misprint,,,the new Yamaha scr950 is rated at 51mpg so that can't be right,,,even with a lower final drive,,,I would wager a guess in the very high sixties at worse to mid seventies,,,after all it is a 150,,,I expect my warmed up bmw r80st (1984) to be in the mid 60's-70's and it's an antique and my hotrod dr350 gets high 60's to mid 70's ( depends on how I'm rompin on it),,, I did see high 50's a few times ridin in the dirt where I was in 2nd and 3rd most of the day,,,
