Have never got 50 mpg on any of my Harleys when I did a mileage check over an extended trip. 

Have friends that say they get 50-60 mpg on their Harleys, no idea if really they do or not.  Know of one guy who will hit the kill switch going down a big hill to "save gas".  Never cared that much about it myself, that seems strange/odd to me.

Depends on riding style, road geography (flat vs hilly), wind/ no wind, speed, etc.  From experience the "mpg" calculators on most all vehicles are inaccurate.  Fill up, figure miles since last fill up, and take the average mpg over 5-10 multiple fill ups is how I would check, back when I cared to check.

On my stock bikes, when I would ride in Arkansas or Colorado I could get close to 50 mpg. My BMW R1200RT gets 50+ all the time.

In Arkansas the roads are pretty crooked so speeds and therefore wind resistance is less, and there are lots of downhills.

In Colorado at elevation, there is less air so the computer injects less fuel.

I kind of keep track in my head for engine health more than for economy.  Getting 70mpg? or 25? something is wrong.

I got 50mpg only once.  At elevation in Yellowstone riding at in the park speeds.  The rest of the ride I was in the mid 40s.  When I dropped back down to sea level (Los Angeles, CA) I was back at 37mpgs.

Yeah, I did have that on rare occasion too.  My 05 that normally got 42-44 did pull 50 mpg running around on the Cripple Creek trip and a couple other times at elevation out west.  50+ on a 114 (I think that's what the questioned bike was) would be something to aspire to.  I don't get quite that much on the stock old Evo in the FXR.  Close, but not quite.

Maybe so....  Sometimes the old "when it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality really is worth listening to.

MOS (Miles Of Smiles) are far more important than MPG.... Ride, smile, fill-up, & repeat... enough said.
