How thirsty is the SV650?

Hi everyone (SV owners)

I am looking at getting an sv650, i have a 36 mile round trip commute to work everyday, so i need some idea how much the sv is going to cost me. 

I currently use a 125 that costs me roughly £13 a week doing nearly 90 miles to the gallon!

Hope you can help

well it ain't

gonna be that good!

Depending on type of road and how throttle happy you are it can go from 30 is to 50 ishmpg but 40 mpg odd is about average .Mind you that was the old carb'ed model a newer injection may be a bit better .

My journey is the same as yours but m'way and I've got the thou ,but its not much different to the 650( economy and tank range wise) and I fill up every two days ,thats £16 odd quid .

Hope that helps
