I've really not had an issue with the fuel range... though when I first bought the bike I thought I would.
I could see this being an issue when you're autobahn (4-lane) touring (blasting along at 75mph for long periods of time)... but that's not really the sweet spot of this bike (wind protection isn't really great for long high speed runs).
When we're secondary road (2 lane) touring we generally refill at the 150-180 mile range... because we've stopped for other reasons (as in... been on the road for over 3 hours and need to stretch, eat, hit the head, etc...). When we DO hit the range limit it's generally around 210-215 miles and 4 hours, which again doesn't seem that bad.
Gas light on my Tiger generally comes on at about 220 miles, and I think it'd be nice if the multi had similar range (250-275)... but it's more of a peace of mind thing for me since in actual riding we almost never have to stop JUST to get gas.
