No vintage or new retro bike is going to cruise at 85, that's a completely unrealistic goal. They'll all run that fast and faster in bursts but it won't be cruising; and you'll always be on the backside of torque curve and into the last bit of horsepower range removing any chance for a burst of power for passing. I have both a 1964 TR6 and a 2004 America and I know what they can do; they both make you grin ear to ear every time you ride them but they won't compete with a modern Daytona or Street Triple for speed. Just sayin'
