I am close to a purchase decision on the Caponord. Can someone tell me what to expect in the way of gas mileage? I have read one ride test that hinted that the bike is pretty thirsty, but they gave no fuel mileage stats.

Thanks,

Jack

I get about 40 to 45 miles to a gallon

The yellow low fuel light comes on at about 160 miles!!!

sooo, I'd pull over and fuel up and could only add 4 gallons

I've gone 225 miles and I had about a half gallon left in the tank

fairly aggressive riding too

I think the max to push it would be 230 miles
depending on where you think the next gas station is of course

Thanks, George. I've gassed once on my new Capo - 38+
Looks like my experience will be similar to yours. Love the bike!
