254kmh (~157mph) "indicated" on the XR...before I had to throw out the anchors for turn 1 at Philip Island Moto GP track....she was still accelerating before I ran out of courage and I had to back off though. :034:

My Jet powered Go-Kart was clocked at a "true" 264.8kmh on an airstrip with plenty of room to play with. :028:

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

I haven't redlined top gear on the XR yet - only bike I haven't on though!
ZX10R, ZX14R and Busa all tapped out at an 'indicated' 300kph.
Multistrada was around 250-260kph
My old GS500 would barely go past 160kph!

330kph indicated on my gen 1 unrestricted Busa quite a few years ago. Not saying where that was 🤪. Only did it once to be able to wear the shirt. 200mph club. Awesome bike but reckon the XR is better. For this old kid anyway. 😜

My Old K that I still have will run past 170 and certainly anything over 120 still has the legs on the X/R all hyperthetical with the clamp down in Europe for speeding with the exception of maybe Italy and the odd autobahn.

I came across an old guy last year on a busa he was 71 When I asked him what the funny thing was attached to side of engine he told me it was a turbo and wanted to get over 200 mph before he died  :005: :745:

71!! Holy sh#t. I had to get off mine at 55 due to shoulder issues. Wrists were ok as I try to keep a light grip on the bars. Miss that bike 😥

190mph indicated on my 2000 ZX12R.
I never maxed out my ZZR1400, or Versys 1000 or the current XR.
