What kind of top end would you expect from a 500-650cc supermoto if you tinker with the sprockets?I DO realise that this kinda bike isn't built for speed but i'm just interested to see how fast people get them...........and also to work out if my speedo is buggered or not!
Mate, your lucky if 50 % of peeps on here have speedos.......
hi there i have a husky 610 and have seen over 120 on speedo with different gearing usually geared for about 100 though much more fun :burnout: hth chris
It might well be right then huh? Shes fitted with an Akrapovic titainium system along with airbox mods so it could be right enough.Its the first bike i've owned where i need to think about where i'm going and then change the sprockets to suit. Like Chris said its much more fun with the husky topping out at 90/100mph but then a 30mile run on the open road is a total nip! The way its set up just now i can cruise at about 80/90mph without sreaming the tits of it but 5th and 6th gear aint very responsive I guess i need a road bike now too!
Sounds like you need a Highland mate Mine will cruise easy at a ton+ with it just tickling the max torque rpm range
Sounds like you need a Highland mate Mine will cruise easy at a ton+ with it just tickling the max torque rpm range It's just had its first service and ecu reprogrammed and apparantly it's even quicker. I shall pick it up tomorrow and see
Yeah but the title says Top speed of supermotos?
I know nothing about Highland bikes at all. Infact i don't know if i've even seen one before.Think i'm gonna buy a Superduke when i get back from Zimbabwe. I'm taking a test drive of both the Superduke and the SM950 in 3weeks time.I'm almost wishing my holidays away!!!!
Lets face it guys theres a few things were missing here,just how many times do you go flat out?,and i know kitefighter must be using that hill down off the dava moor to get 127mph out of a husky .But this is the real prob unless you have you speed clocked on a pukka timing lights etc then its all boll$£ks as its just indicated speed which is worth nothing ,but does make you feel good
Supermoto enough to race in the NORA series
