Yes docc but the total weight is 3 kg heavier than a V11 Sport.

Here you know they actually weighed it and didn't rely on Italian marketing.

557/531 lb. (tank full/empty)

 

 

https://www.motorcyclistonline.com/moto-guzzi-v11-sport-road-test/

Weight    546 lb. (wet) 511 lb. (fuel tank empty)

So they are saying 20 lbs difference.

So, full of fuel, that's 5 kg. Not far off from the 3kg that was stated.

I've long said that at 500 pounds, my Sport is on the side of the road out of gas. . .

They have the V11 Sport tank listed at 5.8gal, the most I've ever put in was 5. You sure would think I could go farther with a 5.8gal tank.

we have fit darn near 5.5 gallons in the wife's V11 tank. Where as my Griso tank would typically hold about a gallon less.

Italians seem to be funny about fuel tank capacities, they typically only get close.

Possibly because the V11 traps around 3 litres of fuel that's unusable? If you add that to the 5 gallons you put in where you still hadn't actually run out of fuel then it's probably close to the 5.8 Gallons.

Wonder how much extra you get with tank swelling:)

That cracks me up - exactly what I thought! :grin:

I'm with swoosh' , fill-up from empty = 5.1 US gallons.  I seem to recall ~0.8 US gallons trapped on the right side of the tank, so "technically" ~5.8 is "correct." :rolleyes:

Don't make me post my proof photo on the tank testing . . .  ;)

Talk about thread drift . . .  I took LuckyPhil's "like" as a  > go for it < for my proof-of-method image testing the early Sport's tank volume . . .

Looks vaguely smutty docc. Not sure why, maybe it's just my warped mind.
