286 miles from the 5.5 gallon tank. Lake Ponchatrain, LA to Cottondale, AL without stopping….
The American V4 exceeds expectations again as the benchmark was 250 miles/tank. The test riders behaved (with a few exceptions) and stuck to the scheduled test: all interstate, all at/below the posted speed limit.
68mph/2900 rpm average. 92-94 deg. ambient.
At 70mph, the MST spins 3000rpm and has 100+ ft lbs on tap…..there aren’t many sportbikes that can do that AND be comfortable for 4+ hrs straight.
One tester commented- “Glad to know the interstate range now, but next time can I just kick in $3.69 and buy the extra gallon so I can get back a LOT quicker?”
