Mileage and range for XR250?

Recommended Posts

Hey mikesbaron,

I have an 03 XR250R, and I can get 75+ miles to the tankful, and the best I have done is 92 miles, using up most of the reserve. I noticed that when I am at a motocross track, the mileage will go down to about 60-65 miles to the tank. I think with the gas prices, I am going to start riding it to work. I need to get me a different back tire.

hmm thats interesting because i have been at least 100 miles on 1 tank full and today i rode about 60 miles (1/2 trails and 1/2 street) probly averaged 35-45 mph on the street in 5th and 6th gears and did around 20 mph on the trail.

when i got home today i would estimate i used 1/2 tank. so assuming that is true i would have expected 120 miles from a tankfull.

On my '03XR280 I get around 35 miles per gallon in tight woods riding. I'd expect to do quite a bit better in open country. 2.4 gallons X 35mpg = 84 miles per tank. The mileage did not change much from the 250 to the 280. I think I used to get around 40mpg in the woods.

That's what I get for believing anything I read in TT. :naughty: I'll adjust my numbers.

Woah!

How come your Aussie tanks hold so much more than our US imperial ones?

Why is Honda doing this?

Huh?!? :naughty::D:naughty:
