    Yup
    The key element is that the Duke found the terrain easy. No first/second gear slogs. Just gentle and smooth throttle inputs was good for all kinds of water crossings/gravel/sand. Also, due to slower co-riders I never exceeded 75 on the best of roads. The mileage readings were crazy. From a worst of 27kmpl while climbing Chang La to an astonishing 58 kmpl on a gentle downhill section
    Getting excessively high mileage from a high revving, large cylinder (relatively) engine may not necessarily be a good thing. It Could mean that the bike is running excessively lean and could hamper the engine sooner than desired.

    for me, i always fill 'full tank on side stand to full tank at side stand' and average calculation based on that (always note the odo on my phone while doing full tank). I have been constantly getting average between 26-28kmpl in city outskirts type riding (which is home to office), and between 30-32 on the highway. This is with moderately spirited riding, not too slow, not too fast. Satisfied with mileage.
    Just for the sake of comparison, my C5 with 535cc engine, flat slide 32mm carb and spirited riding returns a healthy 32-33kmpl in city outskirts type riding.

    I get exactly similar figures on my D390

    In my city I get similar figures- maybe a tad less. My daily commute is only 11km a day. On a Delhi - Bengal run the KTM returned around 22 (I covered 1400+ km in around 20 hours)
    But, the bike did behave radically different at high altitude . Was surprised very pleasantly when on a refill it turned out to be more efficient than a 200NS.
    This behavior is also consistent with what I have got on my previous machines on the same terrain. On the 220 fi I generally got 33/34 while in ladakh it returned 42. Similarly the CBR gave around 30 in the city and I got 39 in Ladakh.

    Not necessarily its lean, it could be efficient as well. Moreover at higher rpms they have surely made the mixture rich which is the reason for a big drop in FE in that range

    At higher altitudes, FI always gives much better FE than carb since FI compensates for change in air pressure. But it also means the bike runs leaner than usual, if i am not wrong.
