Fuel consumption

hi guys

Want to see if any rivale owners checked their fuel consumption. I noticed I do around 80 km before the fuel indicator lights up from full tank. How many km do you do? I am not bothered about heavy fuel consumption but I want to make sure mine is normal. Cheers

I'm in the US so we use miles but using KM I get 125km before the fuel light comes on. I use what they recommend for fuel in the manual. Is your ride new? If it is it will take a good while to let the engine get better gas mileage. My first tank I got 80km and got gradually better.

I tested a couple bikes on long distant tours and found the 87 octane got better range then the 92 octane . I also took my time at end of filling to let as much air out and fill the flat top tank as much as I could while on side stand that alone was worth about 30 more KM. we rode for 6 straight days and had so much fun on these bikes

Interesting mfagusta. You didn't have any valve pinging using 87 octane? The manual states to only use 91 octane but if it works it works.
