Good evening all!
Does anyone know what the "Theoretical" top speed of the 1125R is?
I know what mine can do in a certain gear just clipping the rev limiter with some more gears still to go... But decided I needed a safer environment and larger plums to go any further.
It's just that I want to win a top trumps with some other biker buddies but can't find a definite answer on the internet!
Can anyone help?

For those who know what the 1125R is capable of but would rather not incriminate yourself .....

I've seen 150 on my 1125CR and they are supposed to be geared shorter than the 1125R ... obviously the 1125's have to do at least that I'm sure the 1125R could touch 200 with small changes, maybe chain conversion but nothing major to the powertrain
