Car pulling in my lane, that kind of thing... And even to swerve you need to be able to roll-on I think?

Really? I don't need to roll on to swerve and no one has ever told me I need to...and at 150kph the brakes are gunna move you further away from the car than either swerving or accelerating no matter what your ride is I would have thought.

I've hit 172km/h with slip on and air filter mods..I guess that's good enough for 250cc

Hit an indicated 95 mph today. ( downhill, full tuck, full throttle, with alittle headwind). I need a gps. That road is new and straight as a ruler. Just has long rolling hills and is an empty four lane.

I've found the 90+ mark like most here-and feel at the 75-80 mark, slightly more is available- but at the cost of response time. At a freeway typical 65-70, I had enough to make me feel comfortable enough that I could get out of the way. For those in the LA area, it maintained a solid 77 on the 210 E uphill heading from Glendale to Pasadena (throttle fully open) and rode smooth without feeling like it was straining.

I will say that with the stock windscreen on (pardon the expression gentleman) at those speeds it's definitely a "4T" moment for me personally.(Tuck T-ts To Tank.) :-)

Default Top speed-168 km/h=104.39 mp/h

Hey y'all, it's been a rough week what with the first snowfall here in Canadia, had to get the baby winterized, shine her up real nice and let her hibernate for the next few months..
Just thought I would share my experience of reaching my top speed on the bike:
-Top Speed 168 km/h or 104.39 mp/h
-2012 CBR 250RA NO MODS
-Significant warm-up time, had been driving at 120-130 on the highway for one hour prior to attempting top speed
-I weigh 160 and had a 20 lb axio aerodynamic hardshell backpack on (highly recommended as it protected my spine from injury when i low-sided while slipping on some gravel-but that's a story for another thread).
- Just basically tucked down with my face right into the speedometer and ripped it, at 168 i felt like it still had a bit of room to go, but I didn't because there were several cars coming up. I managed to hold that speed for approx 5 seconds.
-mostly flat terrain, very little downward slope if any
It's very strange because no one else seems to have hit that speed, so either my bike is super awesome, I did something different while breaking it in, or something is off with the speedometer. I dunno which of the three explanations fit but that's my story.

Happy riding to my brothers (and sisters) in the warm South.

World version speedos are off by 8%. You were probably really doing 154.5 kph, 96 mph. The aero back pack must be good for a couple percent also.
