    I always wanted to put a twin in one of those little formula style carts. Figured the twin would give some pretty tractable power.

    Wolf, what kind of fuel mileage/range did you get out of a tank on your old Superhawk?

    I'd like something with more sporting intentions than I have now.

    The Magna is nice, but I'm no stranger to shitty mileage from a tank of fuel. The V4 is damned thirsty. The liter twins tend to be pretty thirsty too from what I hear.

    I asked because I had an idea for an updated (sorta) Superhawk.

    PM sent since the original poster isn't watching his own thread.

    As much as I like the superhawk, I'm going to steer you towards the SV line from Suzuki. Sporty, plenty of punch (in 650 or 1,000cc form), good gas mileage, and reasonably priced.

    I'm not a huge fan of the SV's.
    Nice bikes and all, but the Superhawk is more comfortable. I like the looks of the Honda more.

    Oddly enough, the SV and the Superhawk have about the same size fuel tank for 05. I don't know if they were smaller before.
    I'd probably take the Suzuki over the Superchicken though. The SV gets markedly better fuel mileage.

    Dunno what the tank size differences are but friend of mine with a TLS gets about 120-125 miles per tank before low fuel light comes up, being the SV1K is just a detuned TLS motor if its got same tank size should get 130+ out of a tank

    The Superhawk has been known to pull ~110 from a tank and they are within .5 gallons of each other.

    I thought the SV pulled better mileage.

    Fuck it, I'd get teh Superhawk then...no reason to step down to an SV for a few more miles per tank.

    On STN guys are claiming anywhere from 45 to 51 miles per gallon. So... you gather what you will.
