M800 at 135+!
I used to max out at 140 in my 5-speed M800 on the same highway in 2002-03. Great power to weight ratio and consequently pickup. 130 to 140 takes a while....Breaking is the only little concern at those speeds.
I had to change my front grill twice, due to bird hits early morning (). Then I developed a curious symphony of horn blowing (sounds like an urgent staccato & possibly provides an awarness of the speed) and there've been no hits since.
Cheers & safe driving

Somehow I feel that the true power of the 800 is to be yet realised.
if you have the perfect power to weight ratio, you can achieve higher speeds without any trouble... I don't know y but i feel that if my car had another gear i would have been able to realise its true potential... I have to get myself 3 cylinder tacho to measure the RPMs am hitting.
I think a 5 speed 800 can easily top 145km/hr.

Worth mentioning that I once did an 85kmph on my Bajaj Super for about 10 seconds. And i should confess that it was very scarry.
And it gave me an average of aroung 20 kmpl during that fill.

Esteem top speed
Recently , my esteem touched 141kmph on Amdavad - Rajkot highway.
The roads become bouncy, and everyone knows esteem has a soft suspension setup, so it started jumping up and down(just kidding).

My Alto Lxi, 2007 model, touched 130kmph. It was just for a few seconds as I slowed down quickly due to oncoming traffic. Never again did i feel like touching that speed on highways, although i went quite a few times on the highway!
