Well, to know the actual top speeds, you can check up with Overdrive since they use Racelogic V box which is very accurate.

For some road tests, they even mention the speedo read and the true speed at the same time.

For the Vtec it's 195kmph "speedo", 185 kmph "true speed". And yup, i've hit 195kmph on my Vtec, didn't go beyond that.

Regards...

when my relative was doin 160 on a 2 lane highway , she was hitting his hand.......
how bad is that.
x-machine - impressive speeds.
i do agree that we get fooled by our cars.........
i did 185 in a cielo ...........
unmodified ofcourse but 185 is way off ..........

I agree, bikes make things feel worse than they actually are. Sitting behind my friends bike doin 100kmph felt worse than when i did 195kmph on my car.

hi all

audi rs4: 250+ briefly maybe touched 260
very scary...

been a passenger in an M3, slk, sl, jag xj, merc C36, & a few others, seen umm..quite a bit over 230-240...( have a psycho unlce abroad)

zen:160kmph.yes coming down th expresway from lonavala just before you hit the foodstop on the left the car goes more than 160...no i will not recomend it

cbr400rralm beach road max'd out full throttle 180, yes bike got screwed, as smoking like hell for a few minutes.

zx-12r: stopped looking at the meter after 260 but still had the throttle wacked open ...
vmax: stopped looking after 200, but trust me with this bike you dont care it just pulls like a train
umm... ridden tons of bikes over 200-230, cbr1100xx,zx-11, cbr929, etcetcetc

all the imported cars abroad though, we dont have any roads for such driving here, if anyone does try it here, they are just stupid

Hey Godspeed,

I dont think you were driving/riding. You were flying low!!!

Thats some truly awesome machinery you have experienced there, and our envy is with you. I have taken a spin around in a C32 AMG (driven by a pro-race driver) and gosh....it was unbelievably FAST!
