This would be a GREAT around town/campsite scoot. I had one for about 6 months to intro my GF to bikes with clutches. It would top out (stock) at 45mph (GPS verified). Just fast enough to get run over where I live. Video of my bike I used to sell it on CL...

I read a report that claimed the 125 Madass reached a top speed of 56 mph and that with some bolt-on goodies it could top 75 mph. That could be a FUN little urban assault scooter!

There's even a forum devoted to them HERE.

Good luck, even with a new sprocket it MIGHT make it to 55. I doubt it. The video I posted shows how hard this nearly new bike had to work to make 45.

You might get to 75 with the motor swap.

Saw one of these at the dealer yesterday. Very cool in person. Wouldn't mind it today at all.

Took a test ride on one of those a while back. Nice bike. Looks good. Did everything well. Got off of it bored senseless. Then again, I just don't enjoy riding anything powered by an inline four cylinder, sewing machine, no matter how well it works. Other than that though, if that's your thing, I think it is a nice ride.
