highest sustainable cruising speed?

There are pages that say the 'max speed' is around 130km/h which seems a little slow for a 400 cc bike.

my suzuki tu250x can go 130km/h, but it'll feel a little shaky at that speed. i can comfortable cruise around 115-120km/h on it though.

just to be clear, i don't want to know TOP speed, but its highest comfortable cruising speed. does it have enough passing power too?

My sixty2 and I spend most of our time on an Island that's only 20 miles long and the highest speed limit is 45mph. I find the bike to be quite adequate. As far as passing power, someone passed another vehicle on the island back in August and it caused a big stir on Facebook. I think it even made the newspaper.
stavely and motoRAT like this.

The highest comfortable cruising speed I would say is 70mph without a screen.

Passing, will require a downshift or two.

I ride my Sixty2 in NYC and it’s perfect for our local “highways”. I put quotes as it’s NYC and there’s always traffic.

If you plan to go on road trips or spend time on actual highways, where speed limits exceeds 55mph, I would recommend the 800cc scrambler.

ahhh **** alright! my little 250cc can cruise at 70mph just fine. thanks! its too bad because i'd love to pay for <400 cc insurance rates. i live in the most expensive moto insurance province in the world.
