most modern sport bikes dont have fuel gauges. they just have a fuel light. My Ducati was a night mare because the fuel light would come on at 1/2 a tank or wouldnt come on at all !!! Had to make sure i alway filled up. Havent paid attention to the range, but you have arount 25miles when the light comes on. Im sure someboy will give more answers.

Hi killa45..........I ride an 04 955i, can tell you for sure at hiway speeds with general twisiting of the throttle, I get an average of 200-220K on a full tank before the light comes on, I know for a fact with the light on I can do 48km.After that ..........no idea.
.Oh........that is roughly $14.00cdn for a tank full at .92 cents/liter of the high grade fuel

hope this helps

killa45, It's unlikely that everybody's low fuel lamp lights at the same level or engine get the same MPG. Owner's manual shows a 5.8 (22 L) US gallon tank with 1 (4 L) gallon 'reserve', really after lamp is lit.

Mixed riding ~ 140 miles 'till low fuel lamp lights. Once the lamp lights I go into economy mode and I'm good for ~ 25 miles. You'll get the hang of it after a couple of fill ups.

Rear brakes are a little on the weak side, I think there are some mods on the form for this condition.Just do a thread search. I just put a aftermarket master on mine made a word of difference.
