I'd argue against that. 28-30 is bad even with it breaking in. With my Cityx I was still getting around 55-60 on a run even during that period. O2 sensors can play a part in economy to note. I'm not sure about the US but the UK dealers by in large don't have much of a clue when it comes to Buell's, find a specialist who can give you more of an informative answer.
A quick note to the UK & Aussie posters.

Be aware that the mpg figures posted by US residents will differ from what you calculate your own mpg.

US residents figures will be "Miles Per US Gallon"

US Gallon = 3.785 litres
Imp Gallon = 4.546 litres

You'll need to re-calculate your milage in US Gallons for the comparison to be correct.

My new Lightning XB12Scg was chugging gas! Turns out I had an error message when I was breaking it in and the the eaten up fuel was because I had a defect in my ECM. Get it checked out while it's under warranty! My baby works well now!
