I am 205 pounds without gear, just passed the break-in period + oil change, and was able to consistently hit 97/98mph (indicated on the speedo, which appears to be accurate). 100mph is probably possible with a tailwind or even more with a downhill.

Maybe it can go 1mph more when fully broken in after a couple thousand miles haha?

I'm pretty satisfied with the top speed, I'm just worried about sustained high revs/RPM for so long. I wish the gearing was a little taller for more comfortable cruising at 75mph.

Close to 100 mph I find impressive for such a relatively small displacement. Looking forward to trying mine out and seeing what it can do. At least it means highways are no problem, at least for short-ish distances (I also don't care for sustained high rpms).

I easily reach 162 KPH (100mph) but only after the bike has been running for a while. for example. I live in Cancun, Playa del carmen is 60 kms away, the first 20 kms or so ill just cruise and after that I will push it to the limit a couple of times to reach 162, after those two pushes. you will reach 162 like it was nothing.
I realize it sounds more like a ritual than a scientific fact but it works for me lol.

98 mph here. That was low on fuel I did have a "very small" bag with a tire pressure gauge and helmet lock in there adding a few extra points. I am 6'1'', 170 lbs. Wind was in my face as well but she seemed pretty maxed out.

A former boss put it simpler: "I don't want to be one of the herd, because I don't want to end up as a lamb chop"

Back on topic, looking forward to trying out the top speed on my little R

Full tuck, elbows in, knees tight, no windscreen, flat road, 145lbs (66kg) - got to 100MPH, but was twisted to the end of life and ran out of safe straight when I saw the number (never look down...)

Didn't feel very confident keeping it there. Not what this bike was designed for so really not going to continue to push it...

I have had 98 mph on the GPS...


I have a BMC Filter, Akrapovic exhaust and a 39t rear sprocket.


Gets there a bit quicker but seems to top out the same as everyone else but maybe at a few less rpm's

Why? At 70MPH the RPMs are already screaming so high, dogs howl as you go by. A thread about the top speed of this bike makes as much sense as a discussion about the fuel economy of dragsters.
