Looking at changing my ST1300 for a CBF1000
« on: 08 July, 2019, 12:22:45 PM »
I don't do the miles to justify a large and heavy touring bike anymore, so looking to get a CBF600 mk2 or 1000 mk1

What is the town, filtering mpg of the 1000?

CBF600 MK2? Not sure about that model, but my wife as got one of the last 2010 (registered 2012) CBF600SA which she easily achieves 55mpg +.

I’ve got a 2012 CBF1000FAB (MK2) and can easily match that range when touring together. Around town I still return 50mpg+, but I am gentle on the accelerator.

If there isn't a great deal of difference between the 600 and 1000 mpg then I would obviously prefer the torque offered by the bigger bike

I’m lucky enough to be able to compare both bikes.

The 600 is smooth and can cruise happily at 70 to 80 mph. The 1000 is also very smooth but gets up to speed quicker. Both bikes are comfortable and capable commuters and tours.

The reason the fuel consumption is more or less the same is our riding style. We almost always travel together so speeds etc are similar.

Hard riding on either bike will drop the mpg significantly.

Hi CBF Mark.Had an ST1300 until Dec 2018 then changed to a CBF 1000 A9.Lighter & easier to handle than the Pan .I get a steady 49 mpg overall..Both great bikes ,similar electrics in most respects,latter bike generally easier to access/ work on. Both great engines but I now prefer the 1000.Absolutely delighted with the Biffer.! Ed. :152:
