Capacity tank 186 miles

I often ride from my house to a town in the mountains. Distance round trip 165 miles. The first rides I put some gas but the last three times I made the whole trip with one tank. I live in Mexico then we calculate in kms and liters. When I filled up after the ride I put 13 liters . The capacity is 16.1 liters, making a calculation I should be ok to go as far as 300 kms or 187 miles.

By the way , the gas warning comes on at 200kms or 125 miles

What,s your experience ?

Any comment

I have never gotten anywhere near 187 miles, but I have never run to empty. Judging from the shape of the tank when you take it off, I’ll bet there is quite a bit of unusable volume. I wouldn’t count on being able to use all 16 liters.

186 miles.

I average 50 mpg which means 200 miles for 4 gallons, leaving .4 gallon to spare.

Looks like 250/270 kms with no problem. Funny to hear that one of the reasons for the 950 Multistrada instead of the Hyperstrada was small tank.

I was surprise as well. But, all the time in sport or touring mode, speeds up to 110 miles , revs up to 8500 to 9000 .

Let me tell you, I filled up all the way to the rim.

Do the bikes in mexico not have evap canisters? As i understand it, filling all the way to rim on my bike (US / CA emissions) will damage that canister and cause the bike to run poorly.
