I will have to wait till someone cross references the R15's digital speedo with a speed gun.
Already did. See below.

PS: Launched correctly R15 will beat ZMA/P200/P220 in a drag too. Not too many riders know how to get that right so we will keep seeing R15's loosing to the above bikes in a drag race.

Fantastic info there, Killer. Thanks. So I assume that the R15 can cruise comfortably at 100 - 110?

Are the MRFs of the R15 any good?
Has anybody changed over to Michelin rubber and noticed improvement?
