Hey Rg

60Kmpl is really the best you can hope for and its pretty darn good if you ask me. Dor comparisions sake, I get 32-35Kmpl with my 180 Pulsar. Ofcourse I ride the hell outa it, so i'm not complaining. I know of people who get 45kmpl form 180's!

How about posting a review on your bike in the T-BHP review section.

Cheers
Rt

hey autoslave,
if u keep a limit of 60 kph with proper tire pressures u shud get 65-70kpl.
anything more than 60kph will give u lesser FE figures.
stick to ur service intervals and ur bike shud serve u well.
most people seem to forget it but remember to check ur chain slackness every 500-600kms.if its loose or too tight ,u will get poorer figures .
if possible clean ur air filter every 1000kms.i used to clean it every 15 days with Surf adn then keep it for drying in the night .then soak it with a little engine oil .this will also help.chnage ur plugs verey 5K kms.

ride safe,
Speedsatya

Hello rG,

I own a Caliber 115. My figures are as follows:

Total mileage to-date: 24250kms
Daily run: 55-80kms
Best Mileage: 68.1kmpl
Worst Mileage: 52.2 kmpl

Bike is regularly serviced at 2500kms interval.

I suggest you get your carb cleaned and set by a good mechanic. Don't trust Bajaj Service. They will usually mess up.
