Sometimes you want to ride around in style, with fuel efficiency being a secondary concern. But other times, such as when taking long distance bike tours, fuel efficiency is at the top of the list. Thankfully, there are a number of incredible bikes available that are also stunning light on fuel. That doesn’t mean that these aren’t still sleek, comfortable models that still provide respectable performance.
Check out our list of the most fuel efficient bikes that are available today.
You really can’t go wrong with this nifty little bike from Honda. It tops many lists in terms of fuel efficiency, while still being rather appealing to the eye. The sleek design suggests that it can go far more than just over 100 km/h, but that is about what you can expect in terms of top speeds.
However, with impressive fuel efficiency of around 70 kilometres to the litre, having to stop for fuel will be a rare occurrence, and you’ll have more time for all the other activities you enjoy. All we can say is, wow.
Royal Enfield EFI
We personally love the Royal Enfield EFI, simply because it is so unashamed of its old-school design. It appears as if stolen straight out of a 60s action film, and is just about the best possible choice for a long distance bike tour. As far as efficiency is concerned, the single cylinder motor was designed purely with efficiency in mind. But now various modern innovations have taken that efficiency even further.
You can expect around 35 kilometres to the litre if you’re not paying attention, but can likely get much more if you aren’t at all concerned about getting anywhere fast.
Whenever you get where you’re going, consider checking out an online gambling casino on your phone, which can be just about as relaxing as a ride on a Royal Enfield.
We still prefer the Royal Enfield, but the Yamaha SR400 was designed with much the same intention. Namely; efficiency above all else. The minimalist design says it all, with just about no bells and whistles of any sort. You won’t even find a model with an electric starter, given that this would have added unnecessary clutter.
It’s a touch heavier on the fuel than the Royal Enfield as well, but is still pretty damn good with an average of around 25 kilometres to the litre.
Suzuki DL650 V-Strom
You certainly wouldn’t think that the V-Strom was amongst the most fuel efficient bikes in the world, just by looking at it. The design is rather extravagant, meaning that it is a step above some the bikes already mentioned, at least in terms of style. This style does come at a cost though, as it always does, and so the V-Strom is a bit thirstier than the likes of the Royal Enfield.
Regardless, this classy, snappy looking bike is light on fuel, assuming that you ride it with a bit of sense. It offers around the same efficiency as the SR400, meaning that you can expect roughly 25 kilometres to the litre.
