Used to be able to get it up to 120 indicated... since I went to the Avon Cobra tire which is a 200/55R17 vs the normal 200/50R17, I haven't been able to do that. I can get it to 110 and that is about it. This is on a stock 1600 with none of those fancy after-market pipes or other tunings.
Wells you put the bigger tire on your bike 55 vs 50 percent of 200 mm. You are going to show less MPH then the 50 size, It is going to register 10% MPH less.
So I would say your going the same but be aware when speeding by cops.
I promised my self that I would not speed when I got the t-bird and since 75 is the max speed limit in texas that is as fast as I've gone. However I can not imagine doing over 85 or so it just doesn't seem like it would be that much fun
