Nope you wont see the ton on this bike.The rev limiter is set at 5500.So no matter how steep that slope or how much tail wind you catch.The max speed on paper is 150 Kmph.The company claims 130 Kmph.Id really like to see the bike ride able at least at 60 MPH.I think its time to put some pressure on RE to sort this out.I know it can be done. Because Ive seen the test bikes do 140.Off course this was on a Track but they can be made stable.If RE wants.In its present shape well its only safe to a real speed off 50-55 MPH as Singh Ji has pointed out.Im sorry guys. Im not on any nostalgia trip. For me the bike needs to be functional first and foremost.Ive seen more fuss made about stuff like paint in tank, and side stand switches. When this is the real issue that needs sorting.
Your brothers bike is a g5, not a c5, is it not?
77 MPH is 124 Kmph. Even the company only claims 130 Kmph.You have to wonder when you hear guys claiming faster speeds. Guess some roads slope down more than others.
EAMONVince is like an Expert on these bikes. You can bet he would have sorted out any issues in the first week of owning it.Can you tell us what rubber you have on the bike. Because there seems to be a pattern emerging i.e. stock rubber = trouble. Chaged rubber = no problem.i.e. Singh Ji is on stock rubber as am I.
