Its interesting that the official top speed of the G310R is 87 mph.
I have gone on multiple 90 mile interstate rides this week, and at times have had to open the throttle to briefly pass. Having found the bike quite happy at 85 mph with no straining or complaining, albeit for a very short period. Anyone taken theirs over 85 mph for a short or
extended period ?

I've seen 95 mph out of my bike a hand full of times and I'm tipping the scales closer to 300 pounds than I would care to admit.

Be aware that the speedo is somewhat "optimistic" per my GPS. Not as bad as some, but you're not going as fast as you think you are if you're using the speedometer on the bike.

But it IS an amazing little bike.

Yeah it's about 2 mph off. So says the flashing your speed is signs.

On my trip across the country on my 310GS I hit 96 on the speedo with the bike fully loaded passing a line of trailer trucks.
