Welcome i--------------a,you should be getting 50/60 k.p.l.

Are you sure your tank holds 12L ?

Also is there any fuel left in the tank after 450km?

If I've done the maths correctly

that's  105 miles per gallon.

12 litre = 2.64 gallons (1L = 0.22gallon)
450 km = 279.45 miles

279.45 miles / 2.64 gallon = 105.85mpg

so I would say the bike is probably OK.

How old is it?
