I get about 100-110 before I hit the reserve.
That's about it.

I get 100 per tank, and I run it to E, I have a gauge on mine.

MPG varies greatly from bike to bike and rider to rider, from 27-40+ some of the smaller bikes will get 50++++

If that's until the gas light comes on, it's normal. If it's running empty after just over 100, you got a problem.

I get about 130 until the light, or as little as 90 if I'm beating on it fairly hard.

I USUALLY GET AROUND 80-90 BEFORE I HIT RESERVE, AND THAT IS GIVEN I RIDE PASSIVELY. RIDING MORE AGRESSIVELY I ONLY GET 70 MPG OR SO BEFORE HITTING THE RESERVE. THE MAXIMUM MPG I HAVE EVER GOTTEN IS 140 ON THE FREEWAY AT A CONSTANT 90MPH.
I REALLY DONT CARE ABOUT THE FUEL EFFICIENCY OF MY BIKE, IT STILL BEATS EVERYTHING ELSE I DRIVE.

I ride w alot of 600s and we stagger gas station fill ups; I usually burn 4gallons as they burn 3 on our normal rides. course they are at a higher rpm, I chill at 3-4krpms.

If im doing stop and go, I would fill up one a day on the weekend. Under 50 kills my mpg

I could easily get 250 miles on a tank.

Of course that was on the KLR before I sold it.

For most sportbikes you can expect high 30s or low 40s depending on how you ride. Less if more agressive. If you get significantly less you may be running too rich.

~115-130 easily on a full tank. Anything over 100 I'm happy with when I think about the mpg on ANY car I drive or have driven
