OK tootling around on country roads at 80/100kph (50/60mph) you should get +-5.6ltr/100km, You can do the conversion. Flogging the ass of it though twisties in 4th chasing GSXR/Fireblades and going full bore on the straights (250kph in 5th) you will get roughly 10.5/11 ltr/100 which equates to +-100/110km or 60/65miles before the light comes on from a really full tank.
OK No chance on the straights but they take one hell of a time to catch up after the twisties. (Or so a friends tells me) Hope that helps.
