Street has 13 litre tank. Any idea about how much is the usable fuel? What will be the tank range?

Usable - 11- 11.5 litre because it is strongly recommended you don't run the tank dry due to fuel pump. Normally to be on safe side , they will say retain 3 litre of fuel .

Milleage figure offered is 15-20 kmpl , assuming a value of 18 kmpl it returns 207 km for 11.5 litre of fuel consumed. Depending on riding condition , expect the range to vary between 180-220 km .

an average of 18-20 km-pl will fetch u roughly 225 kms on a tank full. there is a low fuel level alarm at 2ltrs.
that's all i know. seems alright but i would have preferred a 300 kms tank range at least as i am very much interested in touring with it.

I'm not sure about harelys but I know that I most applications the quoted tank range deos not include the fuel pump reserve. So Street with a 13L Tank should actually be more like 16L...

Not with Harleys. Not with BMWs either.

they do but i love them and they still get much better gas mileage than a car!
It is embarrassing to me, and something the fiancée loves to grind me with, but her big floaty-boat Avalon's highway mileage is about the same as that of my Street Rod. Her big turd manages mid thirties mpg on the highway. It makes my head hurt to think about it! :confused:

I take mileage into consideration though. The Street has pretty good fuel mileage since its a lighter and smaller bike than most Harleys. There are some bikes I wouldn't buy because they guzzle gasoline though.

Scooters remind me of Vespa and new ones are good! Fit and finish and paint quality is unmatched. But still don't sell much in India.

I managed 43 mpg on my R. Mix of highway/ city driving.

There should be some hard data from folks in India to verify tank range. Last I checked, there were a couple replies to my fuel economy thread, but your individual driving habits will affect tank range more than anything.

After Riding Couple of Long Rides heres the average I recorded: -

Range until it hits reserve tank signal
Highway: 270km (with 2 litres left in reserve) (if you ride avg speed of 100kmph)
City: 190km (with 2 litres left in reserve)

Crud. I would sure love to know what map you have in your ecm to get that kind of mileage. I have never once busted 40 mpg even nursing it at the speed limit on a long straight highway.

I am assuming it is the stock map. The pipes are OEM, no other obvious changes that I can see. If there is a way for me to get that info, let me know and I will.

According to my Calculations (Highway fuel economy):
24.3 km per liter
57.6 miles per gallon(US)

Pretty good if you ask me.

Thanks for the feedback , what is the grade/brand of fuel you are feeding the bike ?

Eh, don't bother. The dealer is going to dick you for a half hour labor to put it on the Digital Technician and read what tune is loaded. If you had an aftermarket tuner on the bike or something like a Supertuner or TTS Mastertune you would know it because hopefully the bike would have come with the dongle (Harley calls it a VCI for Vehicle Communications Interface) that comes with these.
