    That kind of fuel range though would be annoying on a long trip.
    Fredaronny your mpg reasons to not get a MT/SP 10 are not logical or sensible. You are not serious.

    On a trip to Spain I’ve ridden over 130 miles and still had few litres of fuel remaining. In some mega twisty Pico mountain roads a 150 Miles route can take around 4 or 5 hours depending on photos and lunch stops so stopping after riding for hours on end is no problem to stop for fuel, the spainish even fill the bike up for you, lol.

    I used to carry a 2 litre fuel can, that I have never needed, so I stopped bring it. You are looking for silly excuses not to do rather than reasons to do and buy a great all round motorbike. I’m not going to cokes or convince you it's you loss / your decision, I have used my MT for a wide spectrum of bat out of hell and super trips / tours etc all done fantastically by the MT. I’m more than happy.

    I agree with the Mechanic’s statements above ^ which are logical and correct.

    Fredaronny, Quit with the finding girlie reasons and you’d be easy annoyed excuses and man up and stop dreaming on perfection. The MT the best and dam near ideal for all road riding.

    How do you know if I'm serious or not?? I'm still most likely going to get one but it's made me hold off for now.

    I don't need a lecture on what bike I want or what I want to use it for thanks. I've been riding for 26 years and pretty damn sure I know what I want.

    Don't be such a smartarse

    Fredaronny. Please do not be offended by my directness. I am Not trying to be any type of lecturer, lol, or be a smart arse, i am just sharing info tho with my perspective. Glad this may jolt you to do or to not do.

    If you were for buying and you know what you want then that is good. But why then ask forum here or why hold off as the bike’s mpg or range will not Change by holding off. Anyhow, don’t take offence, we agree biking is class. I answer to share and possible jolt and I say as I see and find it.

    Fair enough and perhaps I was a little hasty in my response.

    I have never had a street bike chew as much fuel as my MT-10SP, then again I have never had a street bike that was this much fun either. Picked mine up from a dealer having never even test ridden an MT and didn't realise how much fuel they use, bothered me for about ten seconds and plan my trips accordingly. Mate
    I ride with has a V-max, now thats a proper gas guzzler....

    MPG is inverse to horsepower (and itís usage)

    My 75 hp F700GS consistently gets 56 mpg (US)
    75 hp FZ(MT)07 55 mpg (US)
    115 hp FZ-09 45 mpg
    160 hp FZ-10 35 mpg
    170 hp Tuono V4 32 mpg

    These numbers can easily be verified at Fuelly.com

    Bigger fuel tanks generally mean heavier bikes and reduced mpg.

    Good luck finding a fast bike that takes you 200-250 miles per tank. 120 miles is very typical. Plenty of new FZ-10 owners initially complain about that range, but learn to accept the trade off. If thatís a deal breaker, donít buy the bike.

    I ended up with the F700GS for other reasons. MPG was not one of them, just a bonus.

    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

    Well said Tiger. Here’s a pic of my MT in my new favourite petrol (sorry Gas) Station.

    RiaŮo in Northern Spain, they even come out and fill the bike for ya. Note minimum €10 Euro card use, but they let me off. Plus I bought liquids that were dearer than the darn Gas/Petrol for my own personal consumption. Great place.
