Welcome to the forum from SA.  (No idea where VA is.)
My calculator tells me 50mpg US is 4.7 L/100km.
I have a 2018 XRt.  I can get that mileage when riding gently through the hills, eg on a bike club ride.
On a fast hilly twisty ride it will be more like 5 to 5.5 L/100km.
Two up and loaded, 5.5.
Head wind, 6 L/100km or more.  (I have the standard tall screen, Givi Monokey panniers and large topbox.)
Tail wind, 4.5 to 5 L/100km.
I think the fuel economy is reasonable for such a large powerful bike.  If you want better economy, get a smaller engined bike.  We have some on smaller Hondas in the club, which are amazingly economical.
Depends on whether you want to carry a pillion and luggage.

I ride with the seat in the lower position.  So I think it is good enough to be able to flat-foot with that.  I can.  I'm 5'10".  -But I always wear proper riding boots on the bike, even if going up to the shops for milk.

The bike is heavyish and top heavy with it.  I dropped my 2015 TEx a few times, standing still or going very slow.  (I'm not too good at U-turns.)
Done near 50kkm on the gen3 without dropping it once.  Obviously I've gotten more careful.
Just be careful.  Unlike me, maybe learn how to do U-turns well.
It's a great bike IMHO.

Are these ELM's the best to purchase to work with your software.
Many thanks in advance

These are currently the only units I recommend for use with TigerTool...

Best quality unit, BBFLY-BF32301 on Amazon:-

Same unit from AliExpress, much cheaper but longer leadtime:-

Alternative (cheaper) unit from AliExpress that's proved reliable so far:-

There'll be others that you'll find cheaper on eBay etc but their quality, reliability and suitability are difficult to confirm. Far too many of the cheapest units simply don't work with some basic ELM327 commands.

Thanks, I couldn't agree more about the flat footing.
I've sat on it with the seat in lower position, and easily flat foot.
I'll try it with seat adjusted high as well, but I think it'll be fine there too.

You can also try this trick too. A poor man's Harley Ride Height Adjuster!

1. I have a 2013 but my 2 yr avg is 46 mpg. Depending on where/how I'm riding I can reach the low-50s.
2. I've run into occasional gremlins, most of which I've fixed. But I've never been stranded by anything major - electronic or mechanical. I'm at 45k miles

They're a great ride, quick comfortable and versatile!
