This bike will easily break 200 mph. I got 140 just going into 5th.
What is simply amazing, is how easy it will get there.
Have to ride one to experience its aerodynamics, it’s balance. The incredible advancements they’ve made.

A ride would be incredible. The electronics to control that bike are incredible. Wheelie control, cornering ABS, monitoring front fork inputs at 100 times per second, can't imagine what it would be like. It would be like going for a ride on the Autobaun, quite natural to bury your foot and go. Cheers

The top speed may be limited electronically, seems I read that somewhere about these type of bikes are limited by government control standards. So out comes the laptop and reprogram :BigGrin:

Our Suburban was limited to 100 mph. Was very disappointing the first time I drove it to Phoenix on that wide open stretch of nothingness.

On these higher end bikes, they limit the speedo, not the top speed. I’m sure my son has been there and beyond already before it’s even broken in.

I know on my Blackbird the first time I hit 170 on it I had to let off easy.... I got a little shaky when it hit home how fast I was going. Closed road of course... :blush:
