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:

I made the change and in this heat we are having I'm soooo glad

Just an FYI in case anybody else searches, the Cbf600 fuel injected 2008+ does 45mpg around heavy town traffic.Would be nice to know what the Cbf1000 does so I can look at upgrading for next season

Used to have an ST13, with that big tank it would go 500 km.  I have had 2 FJR1300's and they will not quite go 400 on their smaller tank, but is more fun than an ST.  Currently I am hoping to turn my '09 CBF1000 into a sport tourer, with the eventual goal of it replacing the FJR.  I personally would prefer the 1000 over the 600.  Currently working on getting a good seat.

If it helps today I filled up (CBF 1000 A6) and rode 190 miles filled up and the tank took 15.5 litres. That is the most it has ever took and equates to 55 mpg which is fairly average consumption for my mix of 20% rural, 40% in town and 40%  dual carriageway.

Anyone shed any light on what the fuel tank actually holds, cant believe I still had 4 litres in a 19.3 litre tank which would give a range of close on 240 miles, surely not!

edit: OK I hit the search button and 19 litres seems to be the right number. Maybe I'll just run it dry and see what it takes to fill.
