Every test report Iīve read says it uses unbelievably little gas. 2.8-3.5 liters per 100 kms seems to be in the ballpark. That gives a theoretical range of 400-500 kms, but in real-life itīs around 350-450 kms. At least over here, where gasoline is ultra-expensive, and itīs price goes even higher every day, I give that a big thumbs up.

I would NOT mind, though, if it had, say, a 20 L tank like my new DL650 does. That bikeīs not thirsty either, so I think with those extra 6 liters, it should beat the NC700X in range.

Adventure - that is in the rider, not in the bike. Remember, people go round the world on Vespaīs, Goldwings, Harleys, R1īs...............
