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.
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.
comfortable 130, over that..the wind slams to your body...averaging 145-155kph ang hug the tank to lessen drag (i ride with lots of higher cc bikes) top speed on youtube is 164kph....i did 170kph on a downward stretch but can cruise at 160kph florred on a flat strtch...a buddy was able to squeeze 176kph for a few seconds downwards
