Mine guzzles! The dam upside down pyramid fuel tank sure doesn't help keep me from running out of gas before the next town either. Once the fuel gauge hits halfway, start looking for a gas station or else! The one thing I hate about the gen 3's.

Use the RANGE Feature on your speedo - tells you how many miles on average you have until empty.

32 mpg right now on a 2016

I don't know if that is good or bad - around town - I certainly didn't buy the bike to save the Planet ...
Lol that’s it doc ! I just know I get around 200 km per tank but hammering my throttle all the time and over the speed limit most of the time
I just put gas back on her and keep riding, it’s cheaper than my V8 anyway

I have a 6.0liter Chevy V8 in my RV.

About 9mpg.

I am averaging 29 - 35 racing around the city.

My IXIL SX1 Full Exhaust has just started to break in & sing, a lot of gas is wasted pissing on the Cagers & other Bikes with throttle challenges ...

Sure cheaper then V8 , one of the thirsty machine ! What’s your V8 ?
