Default Top Speed of a XBike

I think I recall someone asking what the top speed of the X Bikes are...

Well I do not have the answer but I can tell you that it will do the 120 that is listed on the speedo

Now before the moral police jump in here it was on a closed road and I was running with other bikes. Old school drag racing on a closed country road. I ran against mostly HDs and while I did not pull them on the take off I over ran them and left them behind on every pass.

The only one that I could not beat was a tuned and modded HD Vrod and Trimuph Rocket III... that RIII was fast!!!!!

I took a couple of passes with the Busa (that my buddy rode out for me) against some of the younger sports bike guys. My bike is older but still hung in but some of these kids are riding some superbikes out there!!!!

Anyway fun time until the local popo pulled up and told us to take it home before the state boys showed up...

So will the XR and XC do over 120 still up for debate but she was still pulling after I pegged it but not much after... I would guess around the 130 she pegged out. I am stock other then pulling the 02 sensors and weather strip.

Have fun out there!!!

Actiual top speed is 121, and is done through RPM, and not indicated speed. Above 120 the Vic speedo tends to get optimistic

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Will at the quick peek I took at it was pegged at 120.... like I said I was unsure but I was not taking my eyes of the road to look at my TAC... With speedo becoming optimistic at those speeds, that would explain why it felt like it still pulled after 120....

Will Kevin, besides the buzz coming up threw the bars and floorboards (gawd knows I did not notice it much) the bike was rock steady.

I can tell by reading some of your posts that you like to get into it too!!!

Even when I got a right fist full and slowed that scoot down she still was tight!

Vic sure did a good job. I can also say that the ummmm "higher" speeds we were riding too and from Richmond last weekend heading to the NASCAR races in Richmond was smooth. Anyone that has ridden or driven on VA roads knows that they are some of the worst in the nation.... I love riding this bike!

Now I got the want to do cams.... TO BAD I DO NOT LIVE CLOSER TO YOU!!!!

Its easy... Find a open country road that is paved, flat and not heavly travled. Park several pickups accross the road and another set three miles down the road. Pull the bikes or cars in between and GET-R-DUN! The road we us only has one farmer on it that would be blocked in. We throw him some money he pulls out a lawn chair and watches the show...

Cheaper then running at a track and not all the BS that goes with it.

I'm going to go to Pismo beach next weekend and take the XC on a run in the back country where we can reach some pretty high speeds. I'm going to be running with a group of guys that ride Suzuki m109's and they run pretty hard. It's going to be a good ride..

Hook up a GPS or if you have one of the fancy phones with GPS you can find out top speed.
