Our 2014 BMW R1200RTW performed as expected – remarkably on our tour to Billings, MT for the MOA National Rally

Last week we rode to the BMW MOA National Rally in Billings, MT.  That put our BMW R1200RTW into long distance touring duty again, just what it was designed for.

As expected, the RT gobbled up the miles, and this tour re-confirmed one of the RT’s most desirable traits, it’s exceptional fuel economy.  The RT consumed premium unleaded fuel at an impressively low rate.

Here are the details:

Trip avg. fuel economy: 5.0 L/100 km/56.0 Imp mpg/46.6 US mpg

Best fuel economy:  4.4 L/100 km/62.9 Imp mpg/52.3 US mpg

Worst fuel economy:  5.5 L/100 km/50.8 Imp mpg/42.2 US mpg

Distance:  2,637 km

Premium unleaded consumed:  132.95 L
