Best cruising speed with my CEDIA is between 100-120kmph.
Usually on toll roads, I keep it steady at 110kmph as much as possible.

I have touched 160 comfortably in my Petrol Linea.

My "comfortable" cruising speed is in the range of 100.

I live in Kerala and 80-100 is what I feel comfortable curising on our roads. 100+ in a Wagon R is scary. I would prefer to do 100-120 if I am using my Zen.

Default depends on car, age of driver, traffic and road.

someone in 20s with a sedan can cruise at 140 but there is a high probability of an accident. For me in the mid 30s with a Cedia its ~ 100-110 kmph.
On the hyd/medchal highway, you can cruise at 130 and feel bored. 140 is a breeze even for me.

All other roads with no median and <= 4 lanes - around 100 kmph.
If only 2 lanes, then ~ 80 kmph.

I think it depends a lot on the road conditions, I dont think you would stick to your comfortable cruising speed on a greasy surface

I find the zone 80 -1 00 to be more of my liking. It lets me enjoy as well as have ample reaction time. Plus it cuts the need to brake due to others.

Its all about the car and the roads.

Zen @100Kmph - this is absurd comfortable speed . I own a Zen since 2002 and whenever it goes beyond 60 it shakes so much that I have no other option but to slow down . Lots of people own Zen - and its not an isolated phenomenon.Comfortable cruising speed means where you drive with no worries and in a relaxed manner . Its not the highest speed your car can run !!
Currently I have a Ford Fiesta SXI - in that I am comfortable at ~ 100 Kmph

90 to 100kmph in Palio Stile 1.6 on Mumbai Pune expressway. I never cross 100 as far as possible as I have my wife and a young son travelling with me most of the time.

When alone, 110 ->120 kmph during my bachelor days. Same road.

I voted 81-100.

I try restricting myself to 100 on highway in my zen estilo.
Somehow my throttle gets pressed and i remain between 140-145 while on highway.

Cruising speeds differ in the different vehicles we own. But the below are used for highways and the speeds are as indicated. Have taken the indica upto 135-140 as well but it cannot be called cruising. Its totally comfortable to cruise in the 90-100kmph bracket without any worries and get a good mileage as well. I also stick to 100 kmph and avoid going beyond that except for a short speed run with a fully clear view and clear road which is rare.

Indica: 90-100 kmph
M800: 70 kmph
Pulsar 220: 85-95 kmph
Apache RTR160: 75-80 kmph
