It can varry widely. Super faired high effencey stuff can be near 70wh/mile (.07kwh/mile) up to well over 150wh/mile (.15kwh/mile) at freeway speed. Many factors effect this but I normaly use 125wh/mile as my target for a full size sport bike. If your ridding is a lot of stop and go it could be worse.

Electrics are more sensitive to riding style (2 riders same bike same speed = very differnt results) than the ICE counterparts are.

.125-.15 is what id use. Considering the size and speed you want.
