Well, this month's MOTORCYCLE CONSUMER NEWS (April) reviews the TROPHY and says that its "measured top speed" is 134.4 mph.

On the other hand, it also says that the tank capacity is 6.9 gallons ( yet our owner's manual says it is
6.6 gallons ).

Faster than I'll ever want to go.  Not fully broken in yet but 6th gear at 5k rpm = 90mph.  I also noticed that in the  owners manual, it's listed as 6.6 US gal in the Specifications and as 6.9 US gal on the web. I believe the confusion is due to 25 vs 26 liter conversion.  The US & Canada bikes have the 25L gas tank as per the Service Manual T3852790 issue 1, 09.2012

Mine is about 70...it gets up to 80 if I don't cops for miles ahead or behind. But around there.

One time it got up to 100 but its rider's gets a little rattle going that fast. So it usually keeps it down.

I say around 38rpm and at 3rpm it appears to have a sweet spot. Those are my fav rpm to be trucking at.

Had mine up to 130 MPH GPS, stable as the day is long, seems electronically limited cuz' the motor wasn't even straining. This bike is almost too fast for me... :156: Let's be careful out there!  -Dr Ron

I have been over 200 km/h and the bike is steady. Aerial goes a bit nuts but nothing else out of the ordinary. I am pushed forward by the wind coming over the bike and filling the void. Novel feeling.
Go your own way.

You're right about the wind - riding at high speed with a breeze at your back. I have always ridden bikes with screens, but this phenomenon is a first for me.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
