The friendly "miles to empty" computer was showing distances of close to 300 miles on a single tank. No I didn't run it empty so I can't verify anything other than the average MPG's are what the computer said.

The comment about pushing the bike also became apparent. Accelerate into the turns and forget about scrubbing off any speed in it. Power on - Traction!!

Great bike!!

I did not read "keeper" anywhere in this post ???? a Stelvio or Superduke is in your future................
