There's a whole world of difference between CLAIMED and ACTUAL.

claimed or bollocks

they claim they can do that but only in laboratories and dont take in account of head winds, rider weight and hills, Ive had 160mpg from my 1992 yamaha townmate and that was from £5 not bad for an old bike

Claims...

Manufacturers fuel economy claims never match up to real world use, however one thing is for certain: the PCX will easily do more than 100mpg in normal use.

Mine has averaged high nineties, it would do more if I went slower and weighed less.

Don't be fooled by MCNs review of the PCX and claimed top speed of 70mph because it will not do more than 62.5mph.

Sadly the UK will probably not get the recently announced PCX150

Scooter Fuel Consumption

Well, my Honda NHX110 Elite (Lead in the UK) gets a real world 90-95 mpg, instead of the claimed 110 mpg. Of course, I am riding at close to top speed at lot, since much of my commute is on 45-mph speed limit roads.

I can believe that the Honda PCX125 might get 133 mpg at a steady 50-kph/30-mph, but in the real world I would expect 85-100 mpg depending on rider weight and riding style.

Claimed vs Actual

It does seem to be true that claimed figures are generally beyond most riders reach in the real world, but they are attainable if you ride with fuel economy as your primary goal. Sadly this means losing a lot of weight and tootling about at 30mph. Most manufacturers use a standardise motorcycle test cycle for fuel economy, so it's useful when comparing one motorcycle against another (like for like) its common sense to expect a little less if you plan on riding with any form of enjoyment involved. They are peanuts to run even if you fill it up and flat it out everywhere, your still going to get 80-90 mpg, which stil awesome.

Claimed vs actual

thing is, fuel economy is heavily dependent on many factors: type of road / traffic conditions, loading, tyre pressures, wind and weather, and the human on top.

 

A perfectly set up bike under ideal conditions may achieve it, but the average human won't.
