Miles/km per litre /gallon to empty

Hi Versys geeks out there in kawasaki land, how may miles/ kilometers are people getting on average from full to empty. I'm getting around 340 kms to almost empty which is about 210 miles and about 47 miles per gallon (imperial).
I'm riding in low power mode not because i'm a ***** but because its not motorway driving, its country roads and town riding and its powerful enough. i don't really get above 5000 rpm's. The engine just pulls and pulls.
Thanks for all your opinions.
the Pike man.

It depends on your Versys model, mileage, regular/premium fuel, wind gusts, riding mood, food intake and lunar calendar
47-50 miles/gallon seems to be the average out there for 2015+ models. Anything over 200 miles on a motorcycle is pretty good in my book. I can't ride over 3 hours without a good stretch anyway.

Jay's right, but I got 76 mpgImperial on my '15 V650LT last fill, so I CAN go 300 miles on a tank, altho' I tend to fill at around the 180 mile (290 km) mark.

I HATE walking w/ ATGATT on....

I get between 300 to 350km each tank, around 5.1l/100km. But my engine is a baby. It has 2500km. And when I fill up it marks around 16l of fuel, so probably would have gas for at least another 50km in the reserve.
