Tips on How to Increase Bike Mileage

Saving on Fuel and Increasing Bike Mileage

We love driving motorcycles, bikes, and sports bikes in the streets and on the outskirts of the city. We probably also love driving them fast — however, one concern that often prevents us from reaching the max speed is the mileage. Many will check out the mileage specs before buying a motorbike and then worry later on about their bike giving less mileage than specified.

So, in this article, here are some tips on how to increase mileage and save on bike fuel, so that you can go back to your open air drive on your bike.


  • For 4 stroke engines, switch on the bikes with the chokes and self start. Then, leave it without acceleration for 10-15 secs so that the oil has time to flow through the engine and has enough circulation to run it.
  • Don't put the choke on for a too long, as it may fill the engine with fuel.
  • Don't over accelerate as soon as you start your bike.
  • Switch off your bikes during a long wait or a traffic signal.
  • Remove the parts that are not useful, such as the saree guard, the bike box, and any other extra fittings.
  • Change and check the oil regularly as recommended by your service technician.
  • Check your tire's air pressure monthly. A low pressure can be a strain on the mileage while a super high pressure would increase the mileage but also yield instability. An optimum pressure will yield the best results.
  • Don't make sudden drops from a higher gear to a lower one. This may lead to a much higher RPM and decrease the fuel efficiency.
  • Shift your gears to the correct RPM. Also avoid overriding on any particular gear.
  • In general, riding in higher gears gives off a better mileage.
  • Don't change the gears and brake as often if you ride in cities. It may wear down and tire the engine.
  • Service your bike regularly as stated in your manual.
  • Use the brakes, clutch, and the throttle judiciously for optimum mileage.
  • Don't use the clutch when accelerating.
  • Check the batteries, chain slackness, the petrol amount, and the brakes
  • Finally, check the tire grips and change the tire even before it seems to be worn out.

I have a cb unicorn

and it gives me mileage of around 42-44 :( :(

shud i ride at low rpm on high gears

for eg : below 3 rpm on 5th gear rather than 3.5 rpm on 4th gear

Arjuncool 5 years ago from India Author

No probs,if you are at high rpm in high gears,just maintain the proper speed to gear ratio and maintain an even raise of speed,and sudden raise of throttle in the midrange rpm can reduce your mileage considerable...Happy riding...

i use platina 100cc sometimes it gave 90 somtime 70 after service this thing always happen and many others gave even 100

vishal 5 years ago

i have a Hero honda glamour purchase in feb 2011, it is giving approx 30 km/l , how to increase the milege,will this milage conttinue ,,(one servicing has been done)

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 5 years ago from India Author

@ Anurag a mileage of 90km/l is great for platina..and mileage mainly depends on your riding style and braking sequence..It you go at speed of 45-50km/hr you get 100km/l,but its rare..If you're doing it right and still get problems then check your air filter or carburetor for any dirt particles inside...

@Vishal May be you have some problems with air filter or carburetor,which may have some block with the air flow or due to dust particles..Another point,i usually hear that after first service the mileage increases gradually and during second service,you will find your glamour producing normal mileage of 55-60km/l...

@ Arjuncool_I have passion pro. After 2nd service,mileage is reduced to 45 km/l. I ride it with 40-55 km/h normally. please suggest solution.

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 5 years ago from India Author

@sibashish hey,im also having discover,yeah 75km/l is a decent mileage.Mileage mainly depends upon your ride style and maintanance.Im getting about 80km/l..

@Rinku Pulsar 180 average mileage is 40-45km/l.So you can be quite happy about ur mileage.If your want to increase it:1.Change gears at proper speed2.Maintain ur bike properly3.No sudden accleration often..

@Web hosting reviews its pretty low for a 125cc bike..May be after your 1st service you can find an increase in mileage..

Kirthi 4 years ago

Hi ,

i purchased new suzuki GS150R , i am getting 48KMPL now still first service is not done , i trust my bike will give min 50 KMPL after service , but i want to know in which RPM i can shift the gear, now i am changing gear in 3600 to 4000 rpm is it correct or not, because bike is little heavy when i shifting the gear in 3500 rpm , i noticed that stress is falling on the engine , so kindly tell me GS150R users and others which is the correct rpm to change the gear for this bike ,

Thanks and regards


vignesh 4 years ago

hi i have original hayabusa and it gives only 7 per liter i want atleast 15 help me if u no

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 4 years ago from India Author

@Kirthi 48 is a decent mileage for a 150cc bike..Changing gear at 3 to 4 rpm is good for mileage...bikes heaviness doesn't mean that the stress is on engine..As the bike is normally heavy,it would be engineered to handle more stress due to weight..if you like to go with a feel of adrenaline rush,shift at 6-7 rpm..

@vignesh Hi,congrats for owning,the monster busa..If you want more mileage,then remove some of the extra parts that make for the weight in the bike..As it's a humongous 1300cc performance bike,you can't expect more mileage from it..

@hasan check the tires for proper air pressure and give the bike to service as specified in the manual

@mirzan hey,you can go for K & N air filters+ big bore exhausts+ iridium spark plug which would increase the performance of your RTR,but mileage reduces..

@abhinav i don't know which bike u'r referring,pls give the like for any pic for the bike..

@Pankaj go by the above said points and check the carburetor for proper air+fuel mix..

@Sanjay for stunner,you may get mileage of 55 to 60 at mixed conditions

@Binga Please follow the above said points for optimum mileage for your bike

@Harsh check ur carburetor for proper air+fuel mix by taking it to your nearest mechanic and maintain proper air pressure and do servicing regularly

Arjuncool 4 years ago from India Author

@Vinay Don't ride it beyond 4K RPM and maintain the run in period properly and after 1st service it would increase

@Hridoy IT would be cool,but ur claim is unbelievable to the perspective of fazer..

@Adil khan You are getting a pretty low mileage for the Shine..55 to 60 would be a gud FE for Shine

@Abhijit K&N increases the performance only if you do some upjetting in the exhaust otherwise it only boosts up ur exhaust sound

@g.hari krishna My pleasure..:)

@Jitendar Fantastic mileage on ur CBZ..Congrats..

Arjuncool 4 years ago from India Author

@Amaan Please use Motul semi synthetic oil or Motul fully synthetic oil,it increases the smoothness and also the mileage.

@Raj its safe to try,but get proper guidance from a mechanic.Test by trial and error method

@Deepak,Sandeep and Cleo Pls manitain ur oil level,brake pads and tyre pressure regularly and don't accelerate ur bike suddenly in city traffic.Follow these and ur mileage will automatically increase.

@Cleo IF you have a new bike,pls follow the bike run in period speeds go below 4 rpm for first 1000km

@Subendranath Pulsar needs gud maintenance for proper long term life.Please maintain ur bike properly..

@Dhinu Shift gears one by one,ONLY..!!

@gvk51 Shift 1st to 2nd at 20-25km/hr and 2nd to 3rd at 35 and from 3rd to 4th at 45 and from 4th to 5th at 52 to 55 and this gives me best mileage..

@Venkat Glamour gives atleast 60km/hr..40 is too low..Please follow proper engine run in period and don't go above 50 during first 1000KM

@Everyone The K&N filter only increases the exhaust sound of your bike,if yourn't doing the upjetting process,which allows more air to go through and so more performance..

@Everyone If you bike gets too hot,then check the engine oil levels,and don't fit any aftermarket kits that hinders the heat that is dissipated from your bike

@Everyone If you drive slower,but if you get low mileage,then follow the proper run in tips @

and never make sudden acceleration and sudden braking and maintain correct air pressure in your tires.

@Everyone Sorry for not communicating with you uptodate,at present,I'm in a tight schedule in my college life,so pls tolerate with the late responses


@everyone regarding the best 150cc bike competition.Every bike in the 150cc segment has a specific positives and negatives and if mileage and comfort,smoothness is your main requisites,then go for Dazzler/Unicorn and if you want smoothness in engine+looks/GS150R go for Hunk/CBZ and if you want outright performance,then go for Apache RTR 160 and if you want budget communter with decent performance then go for yamaha SZ..

Hope i have clarified some of your doubts..:)

Happy biking..:)

@Kandi Hi kandi,Congrats for you decision of buying R15 v2..Maintain at the speed of 50-60 at the first 1000km to get at least of 45km/l mileage

@sidd may be your carburetor needs to be checked..Pls visit your local mechanic soon..

@Shubam Thanks for your compliments,Shubam..:)

@shalok as you have finished the 1st service now only,wait for sometime,the mileage will gradually increase and reach 38-40km/l

@tarun gud news that you're getting great mileage from your platina..:)

@ravi I would suggest you Apache RTR 180 as it has gud performance+style+mileage..

@Sunny Please do servicing regularly and check your air filter for any dust and tune the carburetor for more mileage

@Alok me too have the twister and getting mileage of 65-70 in highway and 65 in city.Yeah try to always be in 4th gear to get good mileage but don't let the engine to wobble at much lower speeds in higher gear(eg.20km/hr at 4th gear) and don't accelerate rapidly..

@Sahil Thanks for your advice, Sahil..That would've helped many people out here..And congrats for the great mileage you're getting with your bike

@jayz My friends' pulsar 220f gives him 38-40km/l most of the times with good performance.If ridden rash it gives him 35km/l

@Suresh pls check your gear box and accelerator cable also check your carburetor for proper air+fuel mixture settings..!!

Happy riding Everyone,

Hi ARJUN i appreciate your knowledge share on vehicle service and maintenance(maintaining a web blog). You provided us good tips which i am looking for. I have a small concern on my mileage, I won CBZ Extreme 2010 model, i had the habit of driving fast minimum 60,70& max 80km/hr due to lack of patience because my office distance is so far(25+25km up and down). I am getting a mileage of 45 to 47. I use to service my vehicle periodically from good automobile service. We use

Gulf 20W50 engine oil. My question to you is what is the Max speed i can ride to achieve 50-52 kmpl. This mileage is ideal or satisfied for me even if i get more mileage. Exactly i mean top speed with 50-52 kmpl. At last i had a small doubt am i expecting more...

Kindly revert with reply. Thanks in Advance and i wish ALL THE BEST to your FUTURE..

I bought a Discover 100 on 12-04-2012. The mileage now comes to 58kmpl. I drive in chennai within 40kmph. I mainly bought this vehicle for its mileage (as they claim it gives 80kmpl in city) and worried now. Will the mileage improve after 1st service?

@Sameer Happy that you are getting good mileage..Could you pls explain your riding conditions so that other CBZ owners could get benefited

@Tagio I think the Duro could give 35-40 max as its a 125cc engine,change your accleration style to get good mileage

@Preetham I think it may be a spark plug problem or low tyre pressure problem,pls check these two and report your mileage here..

@arshad mention your driving and maintenance conditions please..

@NagiReddy Thanks for your compliments and you're already getting a good mileage of 47km/l in highways and to make to 52km/l or more,ride it in 55-60km/h and test the mileage.Gud that you're regular in maintaining your bike..

@premdeboss Ride constantly at 60km/h and don't allow it to oscillate it often and you can get a steady mileage of 50+km/l and also no sudden accleration at the signals..

@ARJUN anyone owning/TD the new HUNK,help him...

@Ranjith yeah its normal for any new bike to give low mileage figures before first service,wait till the first service and let me know the figures after that..

hi, im just 19 and im very confused on what bike i should be buying...

Should i go for a budget class new bike or a 150cc plus segment used bike?

The ones on my mind are the yamaha fz (owing to its looks and fazer engine) and the pulsar 200...

I really wonder what all i should be checking when i buy a second hand bike...

Sameer 4 years ago

Nice article,

i have 2004 model pulsar 150cc, it used to give me avg about 40-45 in year 2009-2010, i modified bike, reduced weight , installed tubeless tyres although i both of my tyre have round grip, i get an avg now days about 45-50 + depends on trafic, if thers no trfic my milage goes beyond 50. as Arjuncool said, i keep changing bikes oil on monthly basis, now my bike is smooth even after modification. as he says, proper gear shifting and maintaning your bikes gives you good performance

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 4 years ago from India Author

@prit Go for unicorn as it has Reliable engine+honda brand name+best resale value and smooth engine

@Sam Have u checked the tire pressures,if not check that.Also change oil regularly and also check your sparkplugs.Also don't acclerate suddenly

@Sumeet J Hi sumeet,based on all your requirements you can go for Unicorn as it gives 50+ mileage,decent pickup and reliable+smooth honda engine..Also you can consider CB dazzler

@Sameer :):)

@nikhil As your 19,it would be probably your first bike.Its safer to start with a budget class bike,(according to my view),If you're inclined towards getting a 150cc bike,then go for Yamaha FZ and for guide on getting second hand bike check site

@Taran Hi Taran,congrats on your new bike.Honda said a mileage of 55km/l and i know people getting 50km/l.Don't worry,wait for the first service and after the service your bikes' mileage would surely increase

@Shubh :) Glad to help my fellow bikers..!!

@Mangesh alat Congrats on your new bike and happy that you're maintaining your bike at its best and I recomment Motul oil lube and change oil at 2000km limit after the free services are over until then change during the free services time.

@Rajesh You have a great bike with great mileage,congrats..Pls post your ride conditions so that others can gain from that..

@darshan Are you asking the air+fuel mixture? Regarding RPM,maintain at between 4K-4.5K max or below 55km/h up to 1000kms

@Aditya as you have done your 4th service and as your engine has got smoother your mileage could also increase

Arjuncool 4 years ago from India Author

@anshul Pls check ur tire pressure and spark plugs and follow the above said tips..!!

@chhotan giri 70km/l is unbeleivable mileage for a 150cc if its real then its great..

@Amol First,thanks for the compliments..!! CB unicorn and dazzler have same engines except that dazzler has gear ratios that enable good pickup and good top end whereas unicorn is having a tweaked engine for getting good reliablity..Cb dazzler average:50-55 and cb unicorn:52 to 57..Better,go for dazzler

@eswar Pulsar 180 should give between 40-44 my suggestion don't rip your bike hard and fill petrol with no additives and follow the above said tips

@Abilash from this list with good mileage and style its Unicorn..Fz has 44km/l mileage.Better wait for pulsar 200ns

@jishu deb I can't understand you pls post your query clearly

@KARAN pulsar 220 is famous for its pickup and performance..If you want mileage then don't accelerate your bike harder and it can give 35-40km/l

@Prashant Hi prashant after your service the mileage should increase certainly and optimal mileage for pulsar 150 is 45-50

@saurabh 40km/l is too low for a splendor pro..Pls check your engine for any problems in your nearest service center

@Prijoy wait for the pulsar 200ns which is better than pulsar 220f in all aspects..Wait for it and you won't regret it

@BALBIR Don't know hindi..!!

@M.kaif 40 is fazers optimal mileage due to the large tires..If you want good mileage then go at 60-65km/h constantly

I bought a Yamaha Fz s bike last December. First sessions during the services during the services, I drived in 40kmph. Normal speed. But after 3rd service, I tried to ride in high speed. So there was a vibrate when the speed is crossing 56 - 57 kmph. Then again it is ok. But when I reach to 70 kmph its again vibrating continuously. Can't ride more speed. I'm suffering with this problem. Please if you have a solution tell me. Thanks!

Bike dealer says it is typical for all new bikes before first service. I carefully drive below 40kmph, mostly on 2nd (upto 20kmph), 3rd (20-30kmph), 4th (30-40kmph) and only two times 50kmph(5th).

Please help in improving fuel eff. i expect atleast 60kmpl for a 125cc mill.

@Zain 2nd at 20,3rd at 35,4th 45 and 5th at 45 to 50

@Surajj karizma gives 40-45km/l

@karthik yeah what your dealer says is correct,it would improve after the first service and you're doing the correct procedure of maintaining the run-in period tips.

@Parus Yeah CBR 150R is a great practical mini sports bike and its quoted to deliver mileage of 45-50km/l

@nishanth don't rip too much,check tire pressure and check above tips

@amal one time up to 80km/h is ok but don't cross the 50km/h limit often stay below 40

@Sanjay Hi Sanjay,Pulsar 220 is a great bike,but also check for pulsar 200ns which is Better than the pulsar 220 in all aspects

@Sebin Is your 1st service over.If not it will improve after that.also follow the run in tips

paul-1911 3 years ago

Dear all uses,

Bike mileage is depend on various things.

For newer bikes

it didn't gives mileage because, Carbon built-up is necessary for getting better mileage. You may have heard about, that bike mileage increases after second service after 1000 km. But no one knows the actual reason. This is happens because carbon builds up on the valves and the piston top, and this helps to have better compression and have better pickup and mileage. New engines don't have carbon in the valves and piston so mechanics used to give rich mixture so that carbon in the petrol can build up more faster and you can have better mileage later.

Moreover regular maintenance is also necessary for better mileage.

Read your bike manual book and you will get lots of information there. Change the engine oil at regular interval as specified/recommended on the manual book. Also cleaning air filter, carburettor, re-tuning carburettor, changing the spark plug to the hotter one as recommended on the manual book, valve clearance, timing chain timing, changing clutch plates, cleaning adjusting and lubricating chain sprocket with SAE90, maintained accurate tire pressure, drive accurately, and at last de-carbonizing head at every 10,000-15000 kms gives better mileage.

Do these things at regular interval and you will certainly get better mileage and maximum performance from your vehicle. Also increases the overall engine life.

A spark plug can tell you lots of stories of your engine.

Open it up to inspect, if it is white or light brown then you have correct air fuel ratio (AFR). Those who have low mileage will have black soot out spark plug.

paul-1911 3 years ago


Its depend upon how much u well maintained and most probably the work done by your mechanic. But if u maintained properly it can last for 50000 kms and will need a bore were piston being changed.

Arjuncool 3 years ago from India Author

@dip Hey if you want good mileage+comfort+looks go for cbz or if you want average mileage+ good handling, go for Fazer..!

@krishna A unique problem indeed,Hmm..Try to look for any holes in the petrol tank and give to an expert mechanic in your area and keep it in his eyes and ask him to explain the solution..

@Suresh JUst follow the above tips and then you're riding style decides the mileage..

@Amit Just follow the above steps and do proper servicing

@Prabhu Inside city FZ normally gives around 40km/l so your milleage is not bad..Ask ur mechanic to tune carburettor for more mileage..

@Parus Under 70K means go for CBZ or APACHE RTR 160..

@Ravi Thakur Your friend might be wrong..Pulsar 220 easily gives above 35km/l if maintained properly...

@Afzal Best mileage means discover 100cc and mileage +Power means go for discover 125 ST..

@Manav After first service it'll increase

@Bhart Sharma Hi Bhart, If you maintain it properly you can get easily 40km/l but 45km/l is quite optimistic but possible in economic riding

@Mohit follow what i said for Bhart..

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 3 years ago from India Author

@Deven Fz gives 40km/l at the max inside City..Just make sure you don't rip often and fill the tyres to proper pressure and the impact of choking for few mins at start refreshes your engine and its to be done only during cold start

@Taran Its just a rumour at present..:)

@Zafar I think your petrol is evoprating..CHeck for possible leaks or vents in your tank and make sure you close the lid properly..and check for proper tyre pressure

@Anand Roy Tell me about ur bike details in detail

@Neil Thanks bro..:) Regarding R15 v2.0 U'll get approximately up to 40km/l during first service period..Post first service U'll get near to 45 with proper maintanance and riding conditions..!

@Paresh SOrry bro I'm not much in to this problem..Pls do as your mechanic tells..

@maruthamani If there is stalling problem pls take it to your service center and regarding the limits drive at 50-55km/h up to 1000km for good mileage

@Prashat Good news Prashat..Great mileage for a passion indeed..:)

Arjuncool profile image

Arjuncool 3 years ago from India Author

@Premdeboss As you want good grip you can opt for Ceat/ Dunlop..Pirelli are also good ones but a bit pricey..Can cost you above 2K..If money is not a problem, then you can move on to Pirelli, Blind folded..

@mudabbir007 Yeah Honda Shine is a good option with less maintenance and a decent mileage..But also check out the new discover 125ST..It has a decent economy of 63km/l and also a good performer..If you are confused between the two you can go and have a test drive and choose..But I would go for The discover 125ST...!!!

hi,im using CBZ extreme 2007 model,it was good got good mileage, but now am not getting mileage n getting black smoke dropped to lesss than 20km/liter,previously it was more than 40km/liter,

one of mechanich told tht carburator problem,,what is your opinion?can i change my carburator or not?

paul-1911 3 years ago

@ Sandeep

Black smoke indicates excess fuel is burning therefore u r not getting mileage. and White smoke indicates engine oil burning. Don't change the carburetor. First get your air filter and carburettor cleaned and adjust. And then check your mileage. Also replace damage oil seals on carburettor, specially AFR screw o-ring for sure or buy a carburettor o-ring kit. Also inspect if there is any oil or air leaks right from the air filter to head inlet pipe. Get all these things done in service center. After cleaning air filter and carburettor your smoke should be stopped. If still not stop then change the carburettor.

I own a Honda Stunner. Purchased it about 6 months ago. I have been getting mileage varying from 39 to 48. Trust me, I have perfect riding habits. I don't over-accelerate, maintain speed between 30-50 kmph. And talking about accessories, there's only the front crash guard. So no extra weight.

The engine oil has been changes every two months (after every 500 kms). What could be the cause? It's quite depressing, after paying Rs. 68,000. A 125 cc engine should give more. My friend owns a 3 year older model of the same bike. Delivers him 60kmph + ! Kindly help.

piz reply...

paul-1911 3 years ago


Man you are killing your engine. Don't listen to show room guys what they say, they don't know anything. Yes Impulse is off road bike, but that doesn't mean to ride rudely. Specially for first 1000 kms. If u have driven rudely for first 1000 kms then your bike block piston is must have worn and it should be smoking. Always read owners manual before riding. It will you lots of information. Its very important don't ignore.

On the other hand, u did very wrong thing increasing the flow on slow jet. Pickup cant be increase by this way. Infact you have reduced your top-end. And your spark plug is fooling with carbon. And hence you will need early de-carb. If u want to increase acceleration u should have adjust the mixture to richer side. Or change the rear sprocket to 2+ teeth or more to increase acceleration but increasing 1 teeth on back will reduce top end by 2 kph. I would suggest u to change your slow jet its number is #35 and part number is 99103-KRM-035. And for your information your main jet is #135 with 99101-KZJ-1320 part number.

I have since checked the milage four times thinking it is impossible and all four times i got the milage above 140 kmpl and the mechenic himself does not know how? and he says that there was something at production of the bike engine which is giving so much milage. is it possible like that.....

I have a 110cc Honda cb twister, all of a sudden each day when I start the engine in the morning to just throttle it gives out dark smoke, while running i'm not sure if smoke comes and next my spark plug was filled with black coating . The Mechanic simply keeps charging me alot and a day after the service I changed the spark plug. Even my engine seems to be blocking a lot. Finding it hard to get a good pick up. And above all my mileage has dropped from 60-70kmpl to 30-40kmpl And now the mechanic says I have problem in my Bore andd it has to worked on and costs 6grand. What do I do. Thanks in advance
