Went to Winton last weekend to see Cole race the TnT and meet the Oz importers. Great day all round.

Worked out I'm getting around 12.6k's per liter on my '06 TnT Sport on average in power mode. That's about 35.5 mpg (Imperial not US gallon) in the old scale.

With a tank capacity of 16.5l this gives a max range of approx. 208ks which isn't that much. Must admit, I'm in need of a rest before then anyway - dam seat :)

Also replaced my grips with hard foam Guzzi items. Had to remove the ridges at each end of the throttle base to get them to fit but well worth it - pic in gallery.

Cheers!

I consider you either very fortunate or a very conservative driver (no offense). My '04 TNt would make about 120km to reserve in town and around 170km on an open road. My '06 cafe Reacer does about the same.

I did the consumption figures on my trip to Winton which is roughly a 480k round trip. Most of the trip was at 100 - 110 and at the speed limit :( The only place it's safe to play in Victoria anymore is in the corners. There are just too many dam revenue cameras & radar guns around :mad:

Actually the reserve part of the tank is larger than we are used to. It's probably around 4.5 lt which means we've got 11.5 lt until the reserve light comes on. I was told this by the Benelli Export Manager Mr. Oliver Glacer last year when he visited Greece - he has since left Benelli.
The reason he gave was the German market where petrol stations on the Autobahn are far and few between.

Hello, my Sport consumes pretty constand 8ltr/100km. I have to admit that I am still within the first 1000km. The light for fuel reserve is really annoying to flash so early. The digital bars though work quite well once they start reacting.

Best regards

Fuel consumption is an often talked about thing in bike forums. I think what would be useful to people who like to play with numbers :) would be if people listed kilometres per litre or miles per gallon, rider weight, type of riding, and finally how many kms you expect to get from your tyres which is a good gauge of how hard you ride. For example, on my Aprilia it would be

10kms/per litre
80kgs
city commuting
25,000 Diablo Corsa's

Man, I have way too much time on my hands :clap: :clap: :clap:
