Kawasaki wrung this engine out and made it a real performer for a 750cc, especially considering it's a V-twin that revs to 8500 rpm, so it doesn't really get the best fuel economy for a bike its size
The Vulcan 500 is a twin as well,albeit a parallel one,but still a twin,and with dual carbs also

HardRock When I ride hard mine gets down to 38 or so I run 42-43 for my day to day commuting and get about 52 when I go on the lazy Sunday rides with my daughter on the back.

Knifemaker I got around 38mpg.... but then I never ride "conservatively"

Not earshaved. Don't know if stock or not. My riding is pretty conservative. I have a Vulcan 500 that gets abt 55 mpg +\-. That's what I'm basing my judgements on about the 750. I think it just has a few issues that I've not yet found. I enjoy "tinkering", so eventually I'll get it "dialed in". Thanks for replies.

Spockster Best mine gets is 42mpg, with oversize front tire which is supposed to correct the speedometer, that would bring the distance/mpg down a small bit. It's been hard to ride easy through a whole tank, I tend to crank on it.

cglennon My '06 gets 45-55 miles per gallon, averaging about 47-48 for 'spirited' weekend rides.

OleDirtyDoc normal is 45-55 if I remember correctly

hmrct My wife's '06 gets 45 mpg if the rider behaves. I'm given to understand that's not bad for a multi-carb setup.
