Not to mention it pulls just fine above 60.
To expand on this a little, I am currently running a 17T / 36T and not having any problems. I only am using 6th at speeds above 60 mph. 72 mph is about 6000 rpm. I shift less around town and have not seen a down side. If I keep the bike in the right RPM range, acceleration is not a problem.

I've been running a 15t drive sprocket for about a week now and for the type of riding i do, which is commuting on streets with a speed limit of 45mph I am really liking the taller gearing. I take it on the expressway occasionally with speeds up to 65 mph and can appreciate the differrence on how the engine seems more relaxed. Taking off from a stop, 1st gear and second gear are much less frantic and the pull that i get is not that much different from stock but improved. I don't think I'll be going down on the rear sprocket because the 15t is enough of a change for me. I just started using "gas tracker" app to see what my FE is. I must say I enjoy riding my cbr 250r a little bit more now. No regrets here!
