On the flat, without any wind, I can almost get to 120km/h (74 mph) if I'm lying on the tank.
It will sit at 100-110 ish ok (62-68 mph), unless there is a head wind, or a hill, then it slows down a bit.
The top speed thing isn't too bad, I just sit on the throttle stop in 6th, and it's like having cruise control
It can be a bit sluggish to accelerate towards the top speeds, so you need to be a bit strategic with overtaking.
