Yes the RS dosen't feel as stable as a Mondeo at 200kmph speed.

hit 235 on a quick blast once, yesterday returning from the beach hit 225...thats just normal riding on an open road...havnt attempted to go fat out on my 1000rr just yet....

some general info for sportsbike riders...regardless of what our speedos indicate when flat out (most will display 299 or 300kph) not even the 04/05 bikes will hit 300kph...not in stock form, my bike has been clocked at 176mph, the r1 n zx10 hit 179mph 04+ models

only a busa n the zx12 are 300+ kph bikes

I did 176kmph (speedo indicated) in my Baleno on the mumbai-pune expressway..the car seemed to be ready for more but I wasn't ...took a couple of left and right handers @ 130-140 kmph and the car was pretty stable...
dont think I will try these stunts again

Hey...210 is awesome...I drove the Mitsubishi Magna on the Hume Highway ( Melbourne - Sydney)...The Legal speed Limit was 130 kmph...
I was crusing at 150 kmph for 1 hr or so...
But amazing car...I did a dirt track drive for 80-90 kms...& had one hell of a "Rally-ish" experience....

I have done 130kmph on speedo on my 200cc fiero(but the fact is that i've not pushed it to its limits) and the work is still on to make it reach a good 140kmph on the speedo and am looking at a true speed of 130+ kmph.. the gearing is too tall and theoritically the bike can do 150kmph on a rolling dyno...The peak revs are beyond 8k rpm and it still pulls lile mad!
The bike is currently undergoing a major change and am targetting an out put of 20+ps......lets see....
I have touched 155kmph on my zen and 120 on my shaolin...

I have done 185 kmh in my VTEC but don't have any photos to prove it. So the highest I can show is 179-180 Kmph (check out my avatar!!!) Sorry about the picture quality but its the best I could do with my phone cam WHILE DRIVING!
