I voted 80-100. Was trained by my pops who used to sit next to me to never go beyond 80kmph although I take it up to 100 when he's on the phone.

VW vento : 100kmph
Innova: 100kmph
Corolla: 100 kmph

I stick to 80kmph when I'm on the outskirts. Here traffic is chaotic cutting lanes, stopping for a turn without any warning, jumping the pavement to cross the road, erratic behaviour of lorry and bus drivers are pretty common.

Sometimes when the roads are free or when i feel adventurous I accelerate to 120kmph. I never venture beyond that speed and always tell to myself "better late than never".

Agreed. This poll was created long ago and is an anachronism now. In any case nobody has voted for 250 kmph which is a good thing

Mod Note: Closing thread.
