Top Speed

Just curious after watching the video from TheCrumble on a AT's top speed. I think I saw 187 kph (about 115mph) but will they go any faster?

I know that the clocks get less and less accurate over 100mph. I'd imagine that the US model won't be governed, if there is one in place on any of them worldwide.

Waiting to get my wings back.

I think I might be alone in not caring at all what the top speed is! As long as it'll do 80-90mph two-up with luggage I'm happy.

I'd be interested to know maximum comfortable cruising speed also if there is a speed difference between Manual and DCT and how much.

My ST (pictured) holds about 7 mph off from about 40 to 120mph, after that I'm not really sure.

On my DCT model:

Bike says: 56kmh
Zumo says: 51kmh

Bike says: 120kmh
Zumo says: 112kmh

Bike says: 155kmh
Zumo says: 143kmh

Don't know what the top speed is, but 155kmh is more than enough on the autobahn with these idiot Audi BMW drivers tailing me. I've got enough power to pull away quickly even at 150kmh in 6th gear and change lane when it comes to that.
