That is really slow, I decided to “open it up” and hit 145 before the expected head shake because of its inherent aerodynamic qualities akin to a lorry.
Plenty more in there but the shake is pretty intense and no need to hit that again so all good

I hear that, a year in covid lockdown and I’m down to 3 points with a year to go on those

Shame about your 6 though, I got pulled by unmarked for the 91 in a 60 but he accepted my profuse and repeated apologies and reduced it to 3 points. Decent chap it’s fair to say. (Some are)

2020 model with 5000 Km odo reading in standard form with no mods. Checked top speed yesterday. Went up fast to 260kph and then slowly reached 269 kph or 167mph indicated speed at 11400 rpm in 6th gear. Temperature was 15 degrees C with no wind whatsoever in a flat highway. The standard screen was up, probably in the low position I would get some more speed. Definately faster than my previous gen1 model that toped 250 kph.

The Gen2s have longer gearing 4-5-6 don't they?
