If you own one, post it here, Thanks!!
Z900 rs if you ride it so the economy light is on. 180 miles if I ride it more spirited.
Not sure if it's zoot enough for you but, the cb500f has a 4.5 gallon tank and surely you'd be getting near 60mpg or above outside of aggressive riding a long 70mph plus blasts.
Triumph T120 does it if you keep the speed around 65. It won't if your ride 80.
Farthest I've gone on a tank on my 2007 R1200R is 292 miles.
Pretty usual (when touring) to get 450km or 280 miles from a tank on the 2015 BMW R1200R.
Cool! I had no idea the newer R could get range in the ballpark of the older one.
Well, you can scratch FZ07/MT07/XSR700 off the list. 135-150 is all I can comfortably get out of it's 3.7 gallons.
There's a big aftermarket tank available for the Hypermotard (1100 Evo & 796) which should make 200 miles easy.
Yamaha lost the advanced technology to offer fuel capacity on a middleweight motorcycle after the FZ6. And I don't think we got the naked FZ6N in the US.
That bikes long gone, but, yeah, it was pretty good. Used it for a couple of IBA rides, it was a very versatile bike.
What is the tank size on those bikes?
Side note; I edited my other post to mention that range is touring. Obviously economy can change dependent on use etc.
Guzzi V7 has a 5.5 gallon tank and gets 40some MPG.
BMW R nineT. 45mpg and 4.75 gallon tank.
W800 is retro and mine goes, on average, 170 miles to the fuel light, and I've ridden 210 before putting fuel in and still had more than 3/4 gallon in the tank. I regularly see 62-65mpg. Of course it's not a fast bike, but it's a fun bike. I was pleasantly surprised at the fuel usage....several reviews on the bike were getting less than 40mpg somehow . Just mercilessly flogging it, I assume.
My R1250RS goes 200 before I even think about stopping for gas. Don't know if it meets your bike classification. I guess it's a faired touring roadster?
Best I've seen on my 2015 R1200R is around 190 miles before low fuel light and I pushed it to 210 before filling. I found I get better mileage ham fisting back roads than touring. Setting cruise control at 75-80 mph really kills mileage. Just not very aerodynamic with Madstad windshield with MRA X-creen attached.
My 2018 XSR900 is lucky to get 135 miles before low fuel light. Very small tank.
I'm always shocked by your fuel consumption on that bike. I bet you'd be fun to ride with!
My consumption average over my 50k miles of ownership was 60.1 mpg. In the mountains I never saw less than 55 mpg and was usually in the mid to high 60s. My first ride in the Smokys I thought my fuel guage had broken when I was at 176 miles and still showing 1/2 tank on the guage.
To the op, a Sportster model with the 4.5 gallon tank will easily do 200 miles.
My 2014 CB1100, in DLX trim, comes stock w/ a 4.6 gal touring tank &( new for 2014 )a 6th gear for hwy.
Note that on fuelly, the 2013 model ,on average , is 4 mpg less than 2014....which i believe is due to 5 speed trans (vs 6 speed).
My average mpg is 51-52. Stop rubbing it in!
