I've heard about 125 miles, which would be similar to the Monster 796 with it's similar sized tank. I would hope for slightly better MPGs, with 12 less HP, but it's producing more torque at a lower RPM so it's still burning plenty of fuel throughout the rev range.


To me, this is the biggest negative about the bike, as well as the previous generation Monster.

Range 280 km or 175 miles

There has been a couple of official pictures of the LCD instrument showing a range of 280 km. Assuming a full tank, this is what the computer predicts.
Maybe not so in real life.

280 range = 20,7 km per liter


175 range = 49 MPG us

MCN also show an average MPG of 52. Meaning they calculate the 154 miles range as usable range with a 0.6 gallon (2,3 liter) reserve. Even better. The computer calculated range indication should make up for the missing fuel gauge. And there's a fuel low light.

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

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.

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.
