You ride a Unicorn... and you are worried about Gas Mileage... And what the hell is KMPL...?
You do know that a Katana is nearly a sportbike right... We dont give a rip about fuel mileage.

KMPL is Kilometer per liter, and the Katana is a "sport-tourer" which actually does make mileage/range important to some people. No telling how faer he may have to drive in India between gas stations, maybe an extra 30mile to the tankfull, can make the difference between riding or pushing the bike.

If you can get hold of a copy the police riders handbook, otherwise known as motorcycle roadcraft has an absolute wealth of knowledge for riders.

should be a compulsory read in my opinion.

then again all the reading in the world is no substitute for experience
