A good one can. Indicated is WAY optimistic on just about every bike I have ever seen, not to mention MFG limit them to 186 per agreement.

Now, if you have a programmer and pipe and stuff, maybe.

Average speedo error on bikes is 10-15%. 15% would put you at 167, 10% you were at 177.

Here is a road test report on the 02 R1

YZF-R1
998cc DOHC 20 valves
382lbs
131hp/72ftlbs
10.18@136MPH
top speed of 176mph


FYI I have seen 160 on my Bandit, still pulling, but all road tests I have seen show 154 max.

nah i know for a fact it is faster than 185...unless two bikes can have the same error at the same time. But yes, I agree that there is a possibility of speedo error...bear in mind though that shifting does have alot to do with top speed

Oh, I am sure. Nothing like drag coefficient, and horsepower...

I would hope that professional test riders know how to shift..

Pretty sure there are some test riders which are more efficient at shifting than others... the guys that raced the busa vs. the zx-14 admitted that their running times weren't absolutely dependable because one guy was a professional drag racer while the other was a technical track guy...but I do accept the premise that my speedo could have given a faulty read....o well...don't really feel that I need 200 mph anyway, thanks for the info tho

I'll agree that shifting will absolutely affect a time (like 1/4 ET), but top speed is get in high gear, tuck in, and hang on till it won't go no more. Not super technical..... point and shoot.

I know but there have been times where I only topped out at 147 or so, being naive I thought something was wrong with my bike (i.e. intake, tranny, etc...)...however a very knowledgeable friend of mine asker whether or not I had downshifted in order that I may get optimum performance through each gear. I remember that NO, I hadn't downshifted...so therein lied my problem. Not gettin the full potential of each gear ala not getting the full potential of the bike ala top speed...iono, just a rider, not a technician (not to say that I am not working on it :icon_bigg )...

Well, being an old drag racer, I know HP = speed, torque = accelleration.

Also have to factor in air temp and density, road grade and head winds.

But all things being equal, any of todays sport bikes should pull top gear to just about rev limit on any given day, at this altitude.
