The bike will do 65 easily in 4th gear, so I've got to think that it can add 25 mph to that with those last 2 gears and a bunch more revs.

5th and 6th are BOTH overdrive gears so that it can attain those speeds on road. That's why you're not feeling any power, why you're getting such great gas mileage and why it has a top speed of 90+ mph. At least that's what Cycle World said in their "first ride" report on this bike.
