    Fuel range of 2015 and 2016

    Folks - trying to figure which one to get - 2016 or 2015 leftover -

    Price diff aside (a lot!) what are the ranges on the two bikes? I read around 30 mpg on the '15 and rumblings of 25 mpg on the 2016. Are these accurage in the real world? What do mere mortals not reviewing these bikes while riding flat out achieve? I'd suspect without knowing more that the 2016 range is less, based on the larger motor.

    I know nobody buys these for their range, but I like long rides on country roads and range is a serious consideration for me. Thanks!

    Go for the 15 & say a wad of dosh. Fuel economy is better, but not by that much.

    Thanks, Grin - another newb gas question. Do either/both/neither of these bikes have a proper fuel gauge, or just a warning light?

    No fuel gauge on either.

    I own a 2014 (your 2015) Tuono and checked a 1100 (your 2016).

    Why does the US have to be one year in advance when it comes to labeling bike models compared to the rest of the world anyway?

    After a 350 mile round trip to Elvington at the weekend. I can safely announce that a Speed Triple is 20% more fuel efficient than everything, a Brutale 1090 is similar to the V4 and it was always the CB1000R wetting it's knickers about finding a fuel station. The Honda was also giving a 5% higher mileage covered too. Which was weird as he claimed to be running stock gearing. Honda?

    Also, my seat wasn't uncomfortable and the bike started first time every time. It also must give better wind protection than the others by the way they were moaning.
    Thanks from Riaan

    With judicious (legal) riding I'm getting around the low 200k's before the light comes on and needing around 14 ltr to fill. It seems better since the 15t front sprocket went on. As others have stated, the 5k rpm mark seems to be the most fuel efficient. Give it some stick in the hills and around 140k's is the guesstimate for planning stops. I can comfortably do 200k at a time touring, now I've got the 1100 seat on.

    Just returned from a trip through France, Andorra and Spain covering 1500 miles. Yes my new V4 was the thirstiest of the bikes that went on the trip, but I didn't buy it for its MPG. I was however a little concerned over sub 100 mile fill ups as posted on this site. Rode the bike in different modes, hard, slow and touring usually averaged mid 30s over the day. Most I did before fuel light coming on was 127 miles, by chance a fuel station appeared a mile down the road.. Went with Ventura luggage on the back and 5l Kriega on the fuel tank, perfect. Bike out handled my colleagues, note I mention bike not rider as they have always been faster than me in the past. V4 just felt planted and inspired confidence when banked over. After a week of ribbing about Italian reliability, it did let itself down on the final day pissing out coolant from the small rubber coolant house on the left hand side that links coolant rail and housing to engine, then fixed itself a mile down the road. All part of the character of owning an Aprilia. Had visions of being stranded though and would have been jarred right off.....
    Damn good bike and first serious trip away on it, cant wait until next year.

    Just joined the forum and saw your question. I have a 2016 and I am getting about 7 litres/100 km which works out to about 33 mpg US. I understand this is about the same as the 2015 but the 2016 tank is larger.

    Before I traded up to the 1100 Facotry I got 112 mles before the light came on during my commute.
    Lot less at the track.

    My 2012 too.

    Usually around 85-90 to the light, but mine runs on smiles to the gallon and I really couldn't give a friar tuck how many mpg it does

    Have had it as low as 70 something when having a particularly fun day in the Highlands
    Thanks from Banshee

    Had mine down to around 80 to the light but I was in the lower gears at high revs for most of the run.

    I have a new 1100RR with 3000kms on it, and while on a ride the other weekend with the boys (Ducati riders) I ran out of fuel. With a mixture of riding ( couple of runs to 2..kph ) fast and medium speeds, the tank was dry at 243kms. I got a bit of a ribbing from the Ducati boys.

    which improved the ridability of the bike and mpg slightly
