For being a 1000cc and not getting much over 140 doesn't sound to good to me. My 750 does that with no problem.



Juat saw the video now and I seen that he got to 168mph and could still go higher. Sweet.

Well, that's what I'm saying. I would hate for 140 to be the top end!

Yeah, all I did was watch the speed one time and saw it read 168 once. Most of the time it was between 120-140. Still a great video.
