So, I have read many different statements on the top speed of these bikes. Just the other day as I am riding there were no cars in front of me and I could see about 1 1/2 miles out maybe a little more. I told myself when I got the bike that I wouldn't ride more than 20 over the limit.
Didn't happen. I decided to take the chance at seeing what the top speed could be. I am about 180 pounds maybe 190 with my gear and backpack on. I am riding at 65mph in 6th gear and just give it the rest of the throttle.
I made it to 12'000 rpm at 100 even before I had to start slowing for my turn knowing I would need twice the time to slow down.
A question I have is - Do these bikes have rev limiters? if so, I do not think I would want to take it above 12'000 in any gear so I don't get a kick back around 13'000. I used to have a car that still the rev limiter in it and I didn't know, as I rev'd it high I hit the red zone and it drop me from about 8'000 to 3'000 rpm fast enough to push me forward in my seat. that is the last thing I want to happen on 2 wheels.
