Default 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Top Speed


I hit 127mph, the road was completely flat. If I had more room I think I could've hit a little over 130mph maybe.

you might hit 130 indicated, but your real spead was probably around 125; someone who'd gps their top will tell you the exact numbers

Yeah I was told the newer bikes only have a 3% inaccuracy on the speedometer, so at 130mph it's really 126mph which is basically dead on with what you're saying. I've also been told 2007 and older bikes had as much as a 7% inaccuracy that's CRAZY! I know even cars have a percentage off too

I hit 208kmh on my 2012 650 earlier this year on several occasions using a 2-3 mile long straight at sea level here in Thailand. 208 = 129.245Mph, if I was heading downhill I think it would have hit 210 maybe 212kmh but on a flat road 129mph is about as good as youíll get on a stock bike. It took about a mile to get from 190kmh Ė 208kmh on what was then a stock 2012 Ninja 650.
I think with the exhaust I have on the bike now 130mph would be possible but more importantly It should get there a little easier now thanks to the added breathing. 17th of Jan 2013 i will be using the same road again but with a mildly modified 650 this time, let's see what she'll top out at

I'll probs never be able to find out the top speed for myself. I'll probably never even go over 90 mph on mine as I don't ride track.

Thats always fun. Though speed runs arn't much fun after acceleration has come to a hault.

You got that right.
I would never wish to force this bike to 129mph on a regular basis, itís just not designed to ride at said speed. 110mph is easily reachable and is my regular high when I go out for a ride anywhere, anything more just feels like Iím damaging the engine, although I know itís not damaging it, providing I service the bike according to my riding style.
Riding my 636 at an Ďindicated 186mphí (optimistic speedo, yes I know) was a blast, the 650 on the other hand doesnít inspire you to force those last extra mph out of her, but Iím always curious as to what my new bikes will do and also what they will reach after some modifications.

Had the same, tops is 205 kmph in open and wide road but some wind drag not accounted if head or tail wind. Guess this is the max power of our 650. Just tried to see what my bike can do for me and glad to know. Little bit disappointed though but this is it. On the other hand, this bike just suite my riding style and road condition as my test was carried out in toll ways and there are not much on my place. Good for touring and long rides with the ergonomic position and riding comfort.
