Gas Mileage on B3 800

What sort of gas mileage are you guys getting? I usually get to ~80 miles before the gas light comes on. Getting around 25-30mpg around 90% city/10% freeway. I've been commuting daily in heavy city traffic and then getting out early on the weekends to go for spiritied rides, so I'm not expecting great mileage but nothing this low.

What are you guys getting?

Yeah that's probably about the same as I get on the dragster, it's certainly not a bike to choose if you're after economic riding. Light comes on generally between 140-160km for me.

My 2013 B800 varies a bit depending on riding mode selected as well as road type. Certainly gives a few more miles per tank on normal mode rather than sport.

Used on commuting runs I can get up to 120 from full to light on, even managed 155 miles once whenstuckon slow moving motorway.

In holligan sport mode as little as 75 from full to light on. Fun mind you he he.

160 km before the light goes on. After that, one can still do 40 km, but I would not push it that far. Talking about all city drive, sport mode. On highway, I can do 220-230 before light goes on.
