165 is a very realistic max speed for the average person at sea level and level road. I was 205 pounds and got 165mph(264km/h) on a garmin gps. Bike said 170mph (272km/h) And that last 1 mph took almost 10 seconds so we can say the bike was maxed. I was tucked in like hell, looking through the wind shield. The bike had nothing left, not even a bit. Rpm was nailed at 15000 . Perhaps a lighter/smaller rider would have a better run, but body position can make a REAL difference. You really have to be tucked in like hell to squeeze it all out to the last drop.Originally posted by rastas
