100 - 120 is my comfortable crusing speed, however on hatchbacks it used to be 80 - 100.

A lot of it depends on the kind of roads that you are driving on but i guess 100-120 is quite comfortable a speed.

80-100 kph. But in India are you legally allowed to cross 80 kph in multilane highways & expressways like MPE?

In Bangalore, on the NH 7, International Airport stretch, it is very tiring for the legs to keep the needle below 80. I have always seen cops , radar and some caught vehicles in both the direction.

My comfortable drives are always along two lane twisty highways, with sparse traffic, cruising at 80 kph. SH 1 (MC Road) in kerala, SH section to Nandi Hills (Nr. Bangalore) etc are the roads which I frequent. I also liked the stretch from NH 7 to Puttaparthi (AP)as well as NH 220-Tirumangalam (Near Madurai, TN) to Shencottah.

With the Galant, and the U.S. Speed laws, it is generally 120-140kmph.

On a very good multiple laned highway, my cruising speed is 110kmph.
On a single lane highway, my cruising speed is 90kmph.

due to the huge number of speed cameras that have popped up out of no where, the comfortable speed in sweden is the legal one - 120-ish.

cheers

120 is legal, lucky bug. Here the Mum-pune expressway says 80.
He he..In one of the top gear episodes they showed
the French traffic police chase Jeremy
coz he was slow on the highway to Montecarlo.
When will that start happening here.

Due to complaints from people here, authorities might raise it to 130 on some highways.
The way it works here is, if the limit is at 120, traffic cruises at 125-130 without being booked for speeding. I hope the limit is raised to 130

btw, I saw that episode too

cheers

With the road conditions improved by multi-fold since this thread has been initiated, Iam sure many votes would have jumped from 81-100 to 101-120 & 121-140 kmph... but still even on GQ, my comfortable cruising speed remains at 81-100 kmph.. not that I do not wish to get that better, its lack of my skill set or say less the confidence level on our driving conditions
