Top Speed?

Anybody know what a Ninja 250's top speed is? Let's say with a bone stock bike straight from the dealership. My bike struggles to reach 85 so I'd be surprised if it could reach 100.

Ok, so I'm not too far off then. Did you test this out yourself minichris? And was this verified with radar or just the speedo?

Assuming these were the actual top speeds and could have been proven via GPS or radar, that would be a big slap in the face of the new ninja 250 if the old one goes faster.

how much do you guys weigh? What conditions were you guys riding in? And do you have any gearing changes on your bikes?

I weigh about 150 with all my gear, I clocked at 104MPH with the speedo yesterday.

It's said the old 250R is actually faster because it's lighter, but who knows.
