Not sure as never figured out correction but I would say somewhere in the 150's. Speedo read 165.

honestly it is not even that fun to go real fast. it is the acceleration that is awesome. i would much rather take a 25 mph curve at 50 than go 150 in a straight line.

it just doesnt take much skill to twist the throttle and hold it open forever compared to bombing throught the twisties.

I agree. Don't get me wrong. Blastin down the freeway so that it looks like cars doin 85 are standing still is cool but leaning this bike over and hitting apexes (as close as you can anyways while staying in your lane)and powering out of corners is where its at. I love that!
