Warning light comes on at about 120 miles apparently. MCN are quoting 55mpg (UK), in their test in this weeks paper.

I've done around 210 freezing cold miles so far up here in Northumberland (England), I calculated that I am getting around 56 mpg (UK). The low fuel warning light comes on when the tank gets down to 4 litres (1US gallon or 0.88 UK gallon) at that point the display starts counting upward the miles/kilometres you have travelled since you reached the low fuel warning.
154 mile range would be about right as I wouldn't dare trying to see if it could get to 163 (55mpg x 2.97 UK gal)

Will let you know over the weekend. Bear in mind I am running in. I could get 140 + from a Monster 1100s on a decent run. That's miles not speed.
I am expecting as smaller slightly tank to get 130-140 from scrambler

I have it only in metric but mine takes continental 5.33 l / 100 km. 13.5 l should then last for 250 km. I am running in on windy mountain roads, currently 800 km on the odo. Please convert yourself, I am notoriously dividing the wrong way...

My first tank

The dealer said that the bike should have a full tank of fuel when I picked it up. I wanted to see how far it would go, so I've held off of filling her up. Today the light came on at 120 miles. It should be borne in mind that I'm running her in, so not exceeding 6000 rpm. However, I've always found in the past that bikes give better economy as they loosen up a bit. Also, while the dealer clearly had filled it up, I doubt that they had got the very last drop they could in, like I would if I knew I was doing a long trip. It seems pretty acceptable to me - I struggled to get more than 110 from full to fuel light on my FZ1 unless I was riding in slow company.

Keep the figures coming you blokes lucky enough to already have the bike. Fuel range was one of my biggest concerns but its sounding reasonable. I've been spoiled by my 650 Vstrom which I think actually makes fuel.

The light comes on at 200km when calculated 3l / 60 km are left. 1200 km odo, need the first oil change.

On my first run the fuel light came on at 130 miles so I reckon you'll get 150 with a few miles to look for a station. I was taking it fairly easy (no more than 6,500 rpm) as I'm running it in.
