I’ve been seeing guys go 280 km/h+ on the new gen r6. Mine has every performance mod you can imagine aside from a filter, but I can only get it up to 260 km/h. The bike is in A mode and everything, could It be the traction control? I notice that it was off in most of the videos I saw, thanks!

How tall are you and how much do you weigh?

BTW, 161 mph is not slow by any means for a 600.

Changing the sprockets can net you a higher top speed while sacrificing the time it takes to get there.

268kph (167mph) is top-speed per Yami. Top-speed is typically "lab" conditions versus real world. What RPM are they hitting for 280kph (173mph)? There are a number of factors that go into top-speed, such as altitude. There may also be differences in terms of your fueling.

How are you vs them reading speed? Via GPS or speedometer, with or without a product like Speed-O-Healer?
