Something is amiss or it's a magic Speedy.

Just tried this out with mine and 3rd gear rev limit = speedo 185kph (115mph) and GPS 171kph (106mph). Gearing is stock!

the speedo is off, way off. The bike hits a wall around 130.

If you are really the type concerned about it, then I have no doubt you are going 130 in 3rd.


I bet if you took the plastic mohawk off your helmet, she would hit 160 in 4th..





what I'm trying to say is, you seem a little confused.

I have same config (Daytona motor in S3) but I'm afraid have not taken it to limit. Besides my final gearing is 18:45

Daytona is 29PS over the 955 S3, but 'only' 19PS over the 1050 S3.

Factory quoted numbers in PS are actually 118, 128 & 147 converted to HP respectively for S3 955, S3 1050 & Daytona 955.

I went from the T509 885 engine at 108 PS (106.5 HP) to Daytona motor at 149 (147HP)

But yes, if you want absolute top speed, the Daytona 955 is definitely going to pull on the 1050 S3 when it runs out of grunt (i.e. power limited) - even if both naked

I was leaving that one out since it is a wild card, but your close. 150-151 depending. It accelerates harder through the gears (that's why I have it) but its aerodynamically a brick just like the others.

Don't know how fast the Tiger goes, it get funky at 110. As for the Adventurer, it's a work in progress and honestly I don't care. There all just as fun at 80 then they are at terminal velocity.

(just to clarify)

Indeed, you may not even make it to the rev-limiter in 6th gear.
