Fuel Tank

So we know the Gunner is going to have the same small 4.5 gallon tank as the Victory Judge. So using the Judges Fuel economy ratings I figured up a crude estimate of the Gunners mileage range.

So the Judge is pegged at 42.5 mpg average. Based on a 4.5 Gallon fuel tank you're looking at a range of 191 miles to empty.

The one factor to consider here is that the Judge has a dry weight of 869 lbs vs the Gunners svelte 649 lbs, a delta of 220 lbs.

So the figure floating out there is 1 mpg gained per 50 lbs lost, keep in mind this is a vague estimation and in no way shape or form represents hard mathematical fact.

So consider: 50 into 220 4.4 times, meaning a crude estimation of the Gunners fuel economy would have to be 46.9 MPG. That would translate to a 211 mile range between fill ups...

take it for what its worth...

good range to me
it will be used as my commuter and with range like this it's perfect, still better than taking the car.

Lightweight factor of the Gunner is going to be very welcomed.
