Question street triple mpg?

A friend of mine is thinking about getting a street triple and wants to know what kind of mileage they get. So what is everybody averaging?

30+ mpg. I would have to do some really hard riding to get less than 30 mpg. If you are commuting, its easy to see over 40 mpg. Just gotta let the low end torque move you along and avoid revving too much.

I commute daily and rarely see below 45 mpg. Just added a new BMC race filter and I've seen 48mpg for the first time, not too shabby :)

I have NEVER averaged over 40 mpg commuting, usually upper 30's

I get 42-50 MPG (US), depending on how much ethanol they put in the fuel. It also drops a bit (~2 MPG) if I'm doing highway miles instead of my usual back roads.

I have a short commute and never get into sixth gear. 34-35 mpg.

I'm usually between 39 to 42, usually tooling around town and getting out on the roads for an hour or two here in Florida.

quite interesting that there's such a disparity between mpg's. The right hand controls quite a bit, but still.. I'd expect 30's on the track or those fun weekend canyon rides...

Between 42 and 45 US mpg depending on how I ride.
