Redline? I don't know about that, since I don't have a tach, but I do know the bike pulled strong at 80 mph, and still had some room for 85. Now, I wouldn't keep it there for an extended period of time, not with the 14/48 gearing. Where I ride single track I'll often hit the dirt road to get back to my trailer. I'll often hit 75 - 80 with no issues or worries.
