My 690 starts struggling over 100, I think I've saw 107 once. My XR650R is about the same.

But really though, I'd prefer 30-50mph corners all day long over 100mph sweepers.

100+ on any other bike is fun....actually sorta routine.

but anything on road above 70, kinda is not much fun....off road....thats a different story. Doing 80 or so on two track is pretty exciting.

I'm not even sure what my 525SMR topped out at...I always had soo much fun at lower speeds I didn't feel the need to push the top end.

The XR400 tops out at about 85. Fun as below 50. I'm going to change the gearing a bit so I don't pop the motor at the track on the straights.
