I just had a quick question. I have a 05 Ducati 749. I get about 90 miles til my gas light comes on. Is this around what everyone else is getting? Thanks.

90 that's about what I get if I'm doing a lot of in town. On the highway you'll get a lot more 120 or so. If your doing lots of short stuff 90- 100 is about right.

have the mixture checked at next service? I know my milage dropped to about 110 from about 135-140 for the light, when i had the 6k service done i mentioned it, and now im back up to 135, though i dont know exactly what they did to fix it. I ride an SS but I assume running a SBK a little fuel rich will do the same thing.

Not sure if you have a new bike, but besides wjat type of riding you do, the mileage will improve a little as the bike gets broken-in.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I have about 4000 miles so the bike is broken in. But I usually do a lot of city riding, so that may explain things. But its seems everyone is getting around the same for city riding. I will sure to ask at my next service. Happy riding.

I ride my '06 749 to work pretty much every day. My light normally comes on right around 100 miles. I rode out to Laughlin NV last weekend with some guys from work and stopped at 115 miles for gas and the light wasnt even on yet. I had to put 2.5 gal in so I guess that means about 46mpg on the highway. Of course if I am out riding on the weekend the light normall pops on around 80 miles or so.

I think my 996 can get 140 miles easily if not 160 if I remember correctly. That's probably highway. The tank is like 4.5 or so gallons. So that's about right.

My 916 does about the same, does vary slightly on how I ride it, but I don't think it would get more than 120. :)
