  • Hi Bhanu, In the new TB the electronic cluster does not give you the mileage it gives you the average speed on which you are traveling, I guess you are getting confused with that. Also the new electronic cluster in TB is facing problem in some bikes. It shows wrong fuel reading. The guage shows there is no fuel where as there is 5 to 6 ltrs in the tank. I have a TB500 and its giving me this problem. The local dealer has confirmed it and asked for a replacement for my bike cluster. Hope this clarifies why your bike is not giving good mileage...

  • Hi Bhanu. Ive calculated Mileage when my tank started running on reserve fuel. Its manually calculated. By the way next time i refueled 1000 Rs Petrol. and next reserve was after 580 Km. I Ride on Hiway & city roads both. Next time when ur tank goes to reserve mode Note down the reading , refuel it immediately with 1000 Rs. petrol. & note down the reading again after it goes to reserve mode. U shall get exact mileage. Ride Hard Ride Safe.

  • The new TBTS digital display is far from perfect, i believe. I have done about 300 kms till now (500 cc) and i guess am getting about 26 kmpl.

  • Hi, I have a TBTS-350. Is there a way to check the fuel-efficiency on the speedometer? If so, how? Thanks, Keshavan

  • My Thunderbird is giving me a mileage of 42 km/litre which i suppose is amazing when i think about my way of riding it ...Usually i run this bullet at a usual speed of 60 to 90 and in rarest case i topple it @ 100 + ....Although the digital speedometer shows 22 km/pl but when i checked it properly i found it with such a whooping mileage...i really love this bullet...

  • Hi Guys. Good to hear that most of you are getting good mileage. However my TB350 gave me 28km/ltr in city and 35km/ltr on highway ! :( and i am not even going heavy on it. I drive easy most of the times. Getting 2nd service done. Any chances that it will improve ?
