How steep is the hill?

I've done up hill at 75mph and that's about as fast as it can go with me on it.

This is an up hill run . I was not doing anything but testing the camera. Hitting bumps going fast .The dash is not stock but very accurate. The engine has just an exhaust and filter pods.

^ I love your dash.

OP - I frequently pass bigger bikes on a tight twisty mountain road I regularly ride. All depends on the rider. If you're talking more of a straight or not tight uphill that's another story. The 250 has enough scoot. - It also does just fine on 4 lanes; although, it only uses 1

Man I love that set of Koso gauges!!! Someday!!! I concur that it has no issues going uphill... even with my 220lbs butt. 55 should be no issues I've cruised at 70 on the freeway with no issues and room that if I need to accelerate it was there.
