Not to sure about the conversion, but the VFR800's have a 21 litre tank and I get 320km's riding to and from work, and on faster group rides.

I fill up and normally put in 18-19 litres.

Not exactly a road warrior but my ktm 640a with the factory 7.4g tank would go 300 miles before reserve, if i was just cruising.

We just picked up a CB500X. The SO said her indicated fuel consumption was between 2.5 and 4.1 l/100k. As we just got it, I can't give any long term numbers. I would not be surprised if it rounds out at about 3.5l/100k. That means about a 500km range. A little over 300 miles. It'll be interesting to see how the bike measures up over time.

Edit: tank capacity is 4.5g/17.5l.

81 R80G/S with 8.9 gal PD tank .. mileage 42 to 48 mpg driving like a grandma. about 350 miles with some reserve. 400 would be doable if one is careful.

My Versys has 5 US gallon/19l fuel capacity, and I've gone up to 240 miles on a tank without running out. Over 210 before the fuel light comes on is typical for me.

My NC700S does 375-400 km riding in the city... on a 14 liter tank XD.

The fuel light comes on at 275-300, but if I fill up right when it comes on I still have a little more than 4 liters, which is ridiculously early...

I'm a little jealous of dirtydeeds who's got a bigger tank on a smaller bike.

150 mile range sets the bar pretty low...

'Large tank range' for most folks (at least in the wide open spaces of the western US) would cover more miles.
Most folks covering large distances won't consider a bike without 200 mile range, and many buy based on 250 mile range or more.

You see how most of the bikes with 5-8 gallon capacity offer that range pretty easily. Many of the bikes I've had can do 300 miles or better and carry 6.3 to 8.5 gallons.

The shorter list would be large displacement bikes that CANNOT cover 150 miles on a tank

Yamaha ST Tenere has 6 gallon tank. Light comes on at around 180 miles after a continuous 90mph on the highway.There is at least a gallon left in the tank some report only getting 4.5 gallons back in when filling after the light comes on.
I can never keep the bike at 60mph for that many miles as its way to boring and you will get past by every SUV on the road

The only bike I'm aware of with a larger tank, stock, is a GSA.
The ST is difficult to ride hard enough to get below 45mpg in my experience. The range is really impressive. By the way sometimes it is not when YOU are ready to stop for fuel, but rather how far it is between spots where fuel is available. West Texas comes to mind....

I think the Monster 696 has a relatively large tank.
