I imagine if one were to ride close to the owners manual's suggested shift points that they would see something closer to 70...although that does seem to be a pretty liberal figure, something a 250 is capable of. Still, there have been the few odd reports from gen-2 600 Shadow owners that creep towards the 70mpg mark so it's certainly possible.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
