I mean 50s to 60s is a pretty broad range.

Have they used this engine in any other bikes before? If they haven't it makes it pretty hard to make a real guess about the fuel economy. I think we will need more info on the HD Street before we can give a more educated guess.
I think the VRod is engine is as close as it gets, but at 1130ccs I believe. The fuel mileage reports for VRods are not that good, at least compared to the 1200 Sportster.
That is why I was really curious. The last liquid cooled v-twin Honda I had, only got low 40s average. My XL1200 gets upper 40s to 50mpg sporting bags and shield. XL883s are reported to get upper 50s to 70 mpg+.
It will be interesting to see the info for the Street models.
