Ok, that's106 mph.
First time went to pass a semi on the highway I was doing 115 mph (185 kph) as I pulled back into my lane. It wasn't on purpose. I had been riding a VN900 for 10 years and didn't fully understand the difference at the time. Mechanically stock 2017 Vaquero.

Top speed is in 5th gear, not in 6th as the owners manual says.

Sold mine last year, but had her once a tad before 200kph on the speedo in 5th.

Haven't really tried to see what mine will top out at. I did have it just over 100 mph with the wife on the back, just to show her how smooth it was. She didn't realize we were going that fast until I told her to look at the speedometer. Then she started yelling at me to "SLOW THE F%&* DOWN!!!"
