Pushed yesterday at 180Km/h and there was more to come.

Speed readings between tripmaster and AT speedometer have a difference of 10 Km/h

140 Km/h AT > 130 Km/h TripMaster

Anyway, bike is very fast, i saw in some videos 208 Km/h but really, when do you need to go faster than 140/150? Probably never

I found these interesting test specs in BIKE, a UK publication. Seems the speedo is way off on the AT.

Hopefully a speedo healer can be added without messing with the DCT to make the speedo spot on.

Top speed is no issue on a dirt-bike, isn't it? I've done 169 km/h on my Zumo (bikes said 174 I believe) and the engine had still punchy power then....

AT speedo is 10% out. It reads too low. Checked it via sat nav and other bikes. Not really a problem but bloody annoying when trying to watch speed limits.

Not alone at all. I am not remotely interested in wringing the neck off my AT to find out what I will otherwise never do on it.


That is a phase I have been through and by now, long left behind. Right now it does exactly what I need of it.
