I’ve finally picked up my new 2018 M109R BOSS. Fantastic bike and a beast I’m still learning to master. This is my first “big” bike.
I previously had a Yamaha XVS650 Custom that had a 16 L tank. With 95 unleaded I would avg around 250km.
The M109R has a 19.5 tank. I’m assuming that the M109R will consume more fuel per km due to larger size of engine and heavier weight of bike.
The dealership filled the tank before I took it and the fuel gauge showed as full. The fuel warning started flashing and I filled up after 93km of riding. The tank had around 4L left.
I was a little shocked with the milage. Is this because it is a new bike? I’m not a “racing” rider, so I haven’t been gunning it everywhere.
With the larger tank, I was expecting to get around the same km as the 650 before filling up again (250km), but less than 1/2 that... is that normal?
