Small displacement motorcycle how much speed is the most fuel efficient?

1. What is the fuel saving state of the motorcycle?

For small-displacement motorcycles, its own fuel consumption will not be too high, taking 125 models as an example, the comprehensive fuel consumption of 100 kilometers is about 2 liters.

But in order to reach this level, there must be preconditions, if the performance of the vehicle is assumed to be consistent, it is inevitably related to our driving road conditions and engine speed.

Therefore, there is a core problem here, the fuel consumption of the motorcycle is determined by the engine speed. This should not be difficult to understand, no one would think that the gas door is more efficient than idle? If so, it's time to rethink.

At this point, we can conclude that the lower the engine speed, the smaller the fuel consumption required, and vice versa.

However, the level of fuel consumption in normal riding will also have a direct relationship with the actual speed of the vehicle, not to say that the speed is low will certainly save fuel, if it is so that everyone uses a gear to ride on the line.

So there will be an economic speed, it is not a vague concept, or manufacturers publicity stunt, but a real existence.

The so-called economic speed is simply that the motorcycle riding at the current speed is the most fuel-efficient state, and for most small-displacement models, this speed is generally between 50km/h and 60km/h.

Therefore, as long as the conditions permit, the current speed can be achieved, then the fuel consumption will be the lowest, but in reality, this speed is often difficult to achieve, especially in urban areas.

2. How to maintain the economic speed

Figure out the relationship between small-displacement motorcycle engine speed and vehicle speed and fuel consumption, then the next problem is how to maintain the relationship between them, so that it can achieve the most ideal state.

For the scooter, because it does not involve manual intervention in the operation of shifting, so the most effective way here is to control the throttle, and avoid sudden braking, so that it does not fluctuate greatly in speed performance, and can ride at a uniform speed as much as possible, if the actual opening of the throttle in the process of riding is large and small, and the speed is high and low, then the purpose of fuel saving is almost impossible to achieve.

For the car, it is a reasonable shift, using the gear to amplify the characteristics of power transmission, to make up for the impact of the speed of the actual riding on the vehicle fuel consumption, in general, when the speed is maintained at three or four thousand revolutions, according to the actual performance of the vehicle, choose an ideal gear, so that it can be as close to the economic speed as possible, so as to achieve the purpose of fuel saving. But it's a personal quest.

Taking the Jialing SVR180 I am currently riding as an example, when its speed is three or four thousand RPM flat road conditions, five or six gears can reach the economic speed, and the speed of the six gears engine has a drop in the float, if you keep this state has been riding, its 100 km fuel consumption is quite considerable, basically around 1.6L.

Therefore, controlling the speed, reasonable shifting, and maintaining a uniform speed as far as possible is the most fuel-efficient state of the motorcycle, and this process should also reduce the weight and avoid sudden braking. But it's tiring, and there's not a lot of passion.

All in all, the economic speed of 50km/ H-60km /h for small-displacement motorcycles is the most fuel-efficient state, but although this riding will reduce fuel consumption, it will also lose some fun, depending on how individuals choose.
