  • How many kms does your full tank last?

    I was curious to know which bike would have the longest range. A reddit thread of top 10 such bikes got me interested. My RTR would figure in 4th best bike there (none of the Indian bikes figured)! Could not find a similar discussion on Indian bikes. Hence, this thread.

    The data would be important for tourers as well. So go on, give me the 4 data points which can benefit many others.

    A] Bike year:
    B] Bike name:
    C] Fuel Capacity (as per the petrol pump, so, overfueling to be considered):
    D] Kms on full tank (you may know full tank to reserve, and assume a safe range in reserve):

    I plan to compile this database and update it below.

    Make Bike Range (kms) Usable Tank (l) Mileage (km/l) Comments
    Mahindra Mojo 675 20 34 speed 95
    Hero Karizma R 625 13 48 speed 85
    TVS RTR 160 600 15 40 speed 80
    TVS RTR 180 570 15 38 speed 95
    Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 550 18 31 speed 80
    Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi 500 18 28
    Kawasaki Ninja 250R 500 17 29 speed 105
    Honda CBR 250 500 10 50 speed 70
    Yamaha R15 475 12 40 speed 75
    Yamaha FZ-16 450 11 41 speed 70
    Honda CB Twister 420 8 53 speed 70
    KTM Duke 390 310 9.5 33 speed 100
    Triumph Street Twin 260 10 26
    Triumph Street Triple 250 14 18

    GBD Approved

    2009
    Pulsar 220 DTSI
    17-20 litres depending on how much petrol is being stolen by the pump
    500km. From full to empty!

    EDIT: Noticed there is a comment section as well WOT on the trot!!! I once rode along with an RE at 70-80kmph, other than almost sleeping off due to boredom and dying, i got around 45kmpl!

      Karizma R - just 11k kmts on odo
      15 liters
      600 kmts - I usually ride @80-100 kmph with rare bursts to 130.

        Mahindra Mojo - 20 liters, 650-700 km easily if ridden under triple digits.
        Karizma ZMR - 15.5 liters (roughly 13 liters usable), 600-630 km if ridden between 80-90 kmph.
        Yamaha R15 - 12 liters usable (not exactly sure), 400-450 km if ridden under 100 kmph.
        Ninja 250R - 17 liters, ~500 km if ridden under 100-110 kmph.

        P.S - no WOTs, no jerks, only linear throttling involved.

          Bike year: 2016
          Bike name: Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350
          Fuel Capacity: ~18 litres
          Kms on full tank: 500-600 kms
          Speed: 70-90kmph. Anything more than 95kmph will see a steap fall in fuel efficiency.

                KTM Duke 390

                Kms - 6,500 km
                Tank capacity - 11, Usable 9.5 I think,
                Tank range -
                1). With windscreen (Which is a must have)- 270-280 kms,
                2). Without windscreen- 300-320 kms.
                RPM - Under 5.5k,
                Speed - < 100 kmph.

                Note: The above data is considering optimum fuel quality and on highways. If fuel quality is below par and ride is within city, the range might drop to 250 km. (With windscreen)

                    Honda CB Twister[2011]

                    Tank - 8 litres[~6.5 till reserve, usable till empty... I think? :P ]
                    Range - 420km to empty
                    Speeds - 60-80kmph, not WOT in 4th gear, but WOT in gear 1,2 and 3.
                    Mileage - ~53kmpl

                    TVS Apache RTR180ABS[2012]

                    Tank - 16, refuel when 1l left.
                    Range - 570km to ~1 litre left.
                    Speeds - 80-110kmph, WOT, no sudden braking
                    Mileage - ~38kmpl

                    Both the figures above are of a highway scenario. City figures are not confirmed as I always got different mileages.
                    Don't matter what it is: Touring; Racing; Commuting. All I know is, I belong on the saddle.

                      I have assumed that the bike can run 500 kms in 10 litres. 50 kmpl, thats impressive for a 250 cc bike!

                        i believe u have gotten it the other way round bro, with windscreen the range should be more on aaccount of higher aerodynamics...

                        my brother, with a hornet 160, managed to elk out about 550 km from approx 10 ltrs (usable fuel)
                        mostly at 60-70 tho... dunno where he gets the patience to ride that slow tho

                          I haven't got 50 kmpl, just 48.7, 49.8, and 46.2. All tests done with over inflated tyres.


                          The CBR also can go 70~100 kms more after the last fuel bar starts blinking.. Then the bike starts jerking.

                            No no. I have the MRA windscreen. Though it's a very large one. It's a proper touring windscreen. And I've seen the drop in mileage due to the wind resistance and it's quite substantial and noticeable.
                            Dunno about the smaller powerparts, etc windscreens though.

                              well a properly mounted and angled windscreen (i dunno the specifics of your MRA windscreen) would reduce aerodynamic drag, as compared to wind hitting directly onto your chest, hence improving fuel efficiency, or acceleration... in the absence of a windscreen, your chest is a vertical wall for the wind, which would have noticiable drag.
                              in fact, in smaller powerplants, a windscreen would have a much less effect, simply because the speeds are not that great to begin with...
