That was the issue for me (even the Mechanic who test rode it), from 1st to 6th gear & the Speedo is at 70mph. Then it starts to scream but without the sprocket changes I could only get it to 132-138mph & it was very sketchy.wow! didn't know it'd go that fast. Yes, save that for the track.
I've seen 140 (once) and could've seen maybe 10 more ...maybe I'm just too chicken to hold'er wide open!
Around town geared just way too low, especially first & second.
The bike has lost some of its raw acceleration but it's so much easier to ride. The 187 may have only been 183mph - after all the Speedo goes way off once you change the sprockets.
