I went and checked out numbers for the Z1000 considering the Z and Ninja are mechanically identical. On the Z1000 forum guys are seeing anything from low 30's to approaching 100 mpg (but that is rare). Its all dependent on rider style

~30% of Z1000 owners fail to crack 35 mpg, but most will settle between 40-50 mpg..

although the Ninja1 should do a bit better because of its slippery fairing.

for motorcycles it really depends on how you ride and what you are doing. highway/or city

but in general its going to be pretty good. or good enough. especially a kawi

Thats very true, a lot of 1000 owners are very throttle happy but I bet if you ride with the flow of traffic at most times then 40-50 MPG's could be possible.

yea i think the guys seeing sub 35 mpg are really getting on it, plus if you're getting caught in city traffic it murders gas mileage no matter how small the engine.

Very true, but at least it's not as bad a as some cars that get under 20 MPG's even closer to the 10's if you really hammer it.

It just sucks people can't keep cruising at a constant slow speed when traffic is bad, they just race from where they're stopped to the next spot not to far up ahead and repeat.
