Looks like the engine had more to offer but I had to pass! And yeah - it does sound like you're riding a Bullet (EDIT - ENFIELD Bullet)
thats because it has a higher stance and u have the wind in your face on a sports bike ud be doing 200+ most of ur time off the lights. good bike though

I wonder what top speed people can achieve on curves (not straight line) - I once took a sharp turn in Alto at 50 km/h and felt like I'm going to topple.....

We've been following a Camry for some time, and I've been gently trying to persuade the Toyota driver to move over. A polite honk and one or two flashes of the headlamp have not worked. He is doing a steady 180km/h or so, and maybe because he doesn't really believe the car behind him can actually overtake his Camry, he's hogging the fast lane. Right, time to get to work then. I take my foot off the throttle momentarily - there's a loud 'wwhooosshhhh!!' from the turbo's wastegate - and downshift to fourth. We move left to the centre lane, and with the throttle floored, our car leaps ahead in one ferocious lunge. There's a look of utter and complete disbelief on the Camry driver's face as our car snarls past. Within seconds, the Toyota is already receding fast in our rear view mirror. We're driving a Maruti Suzuki Swift, and we've just overtaken a 2.4-litre, 142PS Camry that's being driven flat out.

I have Done 165 in NH7 Hyderabad to Chennai, and some what more than that i mean nearing 170 KMPH on ECR Chennai to Pondy road.

I could drag much more, but may b there was some prob with the air pressure and wheel balancing, or the road conditions, my steering wheel gave me a rattling feeling, so i had to stop dragging it more than that.

I will try doing more after upsizing my Palio's tyres.
