However the tiger seems like it could loose 1000rpm and still do fine at 70. Does fine now at 80 anyway.
It's at 6K @ 80mph now. And yes, the engine will be comfortable because it's so smooth. If my T955i is anything to go by, I think it'll start to drink a lot more fuel pulling 1000 higher at 80. And remember, it's not brilliant now.
