Just joined the forum to see how everyone is liking the fz07, been thinking about a new bike for commuting and it seems the fz07 may fit the bill. Currently ride a xl1200N, saves me a lot in gas as compared to my RAM 1500. In researching a new bike I saw that the fz07 claims a mpg of 58 can any on verify that ? Anyway I'll be poking around the forum to gain as much info so I can make a informed desision.
 
Never had a bike that could do a power wheelie, besides the old KDX200 got to love a old2skroke dirt bike.

Welcome to the forums. I commute a lot with my bike and I average around 57-60 mpg. Really great bike for me, rain or shine. You may decide to accessorize a bit for comfort/taste.

I've averaged right in the low 60's through the break in period. Most miles have been from commuting, mixed traffic conditions. Highway and city combined. Definitely babying it most of the time.

Welcome.
I got rid of an XL1200X for an FZ-07. My seat seat stamina is more than doubled now.

Welcome! MPG will all depend on your riding style and what type of riding you do. The 58 can be achieved if one rides calm and conservatively.

Calm and conservatively? I do not understand that phrase :).

I like this dude already 
Same truck as me, probably get the same 15-17mpg city as me. On my FZ07, I have never reset the MPG, and I am showing 48.4MPG, i ride some in ECO, but mostly in and around town, I am NEVER in ECO
 
i will say this, and think MANY will agree, there is NO better commuter bike, the lightweight, great power band, throttle response, water cooled(so less heat than a cruiser), and comfort...I ride this bike every chance I get. On my past bikes, cruisers for the most part, I only rode on the weekend. On the FZ07, it's so fun, I have been known to go grocery shopping, making multiple trips to the store throwing items in the old backpack, cuz it is just so fun to ride

The best place to check model mileage is Fuelly. They aggregate fillup and mileage data for multiple users that have the same model and average it out. Currently it looks like 54 mpg is the average. That being said I think you could push 60-65 mpg if you really tried to drive careful.

   Howdy, I've had 2 Sportsters and a Buell Firebolt .....and I'm enjoying the 07 much more in every way. Super light with razor sharp handling, great power and torque and super comfy. Lot's of room for personalizing, making it go faster and handle better.  If you buy one you will not regret it....its a awesome little bike.
