New 250 Rider, RPM question
Hello, I am a new rider of the 250 as I bought a 2009 for my girlfriend who is just going through the learning process. I have owned a suzuki cruiser before but never a sport bike.
My question is, what rpm's do you notice when you're cruising a long at 70mph/110kmh? I noticed mine was up near 7000 and wondered if that was normal, just seemed a bit high. Pretty sure I was in top gear but haven't had a chance to count since being on the highway but I couldn't shift up anymore so I assume I was in 6th. Have any of these bikes had issues shifting into 6th?
