Aprilia Pegaso 650 Strada – fuel efficiency
After 2 years on my Aprilia Pegaso 650 Strada, I think it’s time to write a review of fuel efficiency.
How I measured:
Whenever I top-up my tank, I check the mileage and then reset the trip odometer. For means of simplicity and consistency, I top-up right after the yellow fuel indicator comes on.
Here are the results:
- At daily commuting in heavy traffic, I never get more than 200km per tank. That’s about 15km per litre.
- While touring at around 140km/h I get 230km. (17km per litre)
- During my last trip, I tried to keep a steady pace of 120km/h and never reached above 5,000rpm. Amazingly, this gave me a range of 300km!! (23km per litre).
While touring I can travel easily as far as 500km away with just 2 top-ups and some fuel to spare. Overall, I think that as long as you don’t go full throttle fuel economy on the Aprilia Pegaso 650 Strada is pretty sweet.
