Just about to get my first service done next week on my bike was curious to see what mileage people are getting out of their bikes, be it in any of the different modes.
I got around 210klms in race mode whilst up in the mountains but will try to see what I get whilst riding around the city in sports mode.
Not sure how many klms I will get out of the reserve tank but I'm guessing around 30klms.

Post up what mileage you are getting on your bikes for reference.

Mines doing 200 before reserve light comes on then takes 10 - 11 litres to fill. Given the 17 litre tank you should expect at least 250 km and probably in excess of 300 km if you are prepare to test it. Averaging around 5.2 L / 100 km

I'm much the same, around 5.2 L per 100km, expecting around 300 per tank. Ran as long as 260km. Counter seems quite accurate, I'm resetting each time which gives me a good idea how long I can run with the avg consumption.

That is sport mode in twisties and some freeway not riding hard, just solid.

I think my fuel consumption is a bit greater than what other ppl are getting is due to me always riding in Race mode and riding pretty hard through the mountains.

After having some very fast bikes and cars I just can't seem to drive anything slow.....

Pft! you got nothing on me mate. I get 160kms out of a tank per week. I ride hard (but not like an idiot) on my commutes to work and weekend around the mountain. I'm always in race mode and average 40kms total per work day (to and from work). I do get a bit of traffic and do alot of throttle blipping on downshifts which doesn't help.

Now when im in the mountains i get around 240kms before the light comes on. Highways help with that figure. Almost all my roads to work are back streets and stop lights so alot of hard acceleration going on which eats fuel.

I've posted somewhere o. This forum about how far I was able to go right after the fuel light came on. I went a good 20 miles after the light came on so I know now that I'll at least be good for the next 20 miles to find a gas station!

I have done 30kms when the first light came on. It kept going off and on for ages, so during that time in total to when it FINALLY stayed on i would have done 30kms.

I must say it is REALLY annoying now to see the light come on and off when you know that you still have a lot of fuel in the tank. I'm used to my R1 in which when the light comes on.. you pray a fuel stop is on the horizon.

Doesn't sound normal. Wonder if something is wrong with the fuel level sensor. Have you brought this issue up with your dealer?

I haven't bought it up with them yet. As i normally go by the Odometer for fuel rather then the fuel light. But will definitely be bringing it up with them if it starts to come on a lot sooner then currently.

I just done 2 full tank to reserve light on. My consumption seems to be around 15-16 km per litre/ 35-37mpg. I play around both Sport and Race mode. And when I ride to work and back its 100km. I would say my usage is 70% high way 30% urban. However, its pretty often that I am stuck in traffic 40% on the journey back which only allows me to travel at around 40-50kph/25-30mph. My reserve light came on at 170km/105miles and topping up 11litre/2.9gal. Wondering if this is normal. This is my first Duc. Not sure how much petrol their drink.
