I went 107 mph , according to my GPS , before the bike hit the regulated speed limiter. The bike still felt like it had a lot more to go.

The Vulcan 900 has a speed limiter? Hm, I had no idea. When and why did this get introduced?

I've only had it up to 85, but clearly there was more throttle left to go. Just too ticket adverse, I guess.

I think "rev limiter" is what Stephen is refering to.

The larger diameter Avon Venon 200 gets you past the 107 mark (gps) before hitting the rev limiter. I did some runs on private property; my crazy days are long gone.

I've done 115mph more than once. I believe they top at 115 dough.

I've only had it for 2 months now (just went over 2k miles) and it is still box stock.

I took it to 85 (on the kawi speedometer) for a brief few seconds. Still had plenty of throttle left.
