I see that you attempt to compare the mileage you got on a K1200LT. The K1200RS has different cams, larger throttle-body (manifolds) and more compression to be able to deliver more horsepower.
Do not expect to get the same mileage even if you ride it like a old lady :-)
During my 80,000 miles on my K1200RS, the average I got is 36 to 40 mpg depending on how hard (and fast) I ride it.
