two reasons: manufactures tend to be very optimistic to get people to buy their bike. or that site either weighed and that's what they found or their measurements are highly inaccurate. but you can be sure of the first option.

I usually get in the area of 40 but I ride hard

The best way I've found is to measure it yourself. Fill up and go 100 miles or so, then refill and figure up your mileage. Do this 5 or 6 times and average the results. ake that average times your tanks capacity and there is your max range per tank. I usually subtract about 20-30 miles from that number and fill up at that point. May not be dead nuts on, but it will be pretty close. The more numbers you use in the average the more accurate it will be.

Since you posted in Daily Rider (rather than Suzuki forum), 50mpg on my 500.

And I'm something of a Nazi for records and evidence. I've got vehicle gas records for each vehicle I've ever owned. And some charts to go along with it. Helps to identify when something is going awry

I almost started doing this, but I think Katie would kill me if I did.

We've got a great program here for creating control charts and analyzing data. Every time I think about using it for personal reasons I want to choke myself to death.

I was looking at that chart the other day and I can't figure out why some bike's (the Ducati SS1000 DS) average MPG is higher than both their low/high mpg. My math skills tell me there's something fishy there.
