That equates to 99-100 MPH. My 2003 1500 Nomad would do better than that... BUT NOT BY MUCH. Could be fuel quality, climate...etc. Good luck.I'm following this thread with interest. I discovered last summer that my 2008 Nomad was topping out at 160KMH as well. Don't get me wrong, I seldom ride with the joy grip twisted all the way open. This summer I fully tuned the bike and tried the top end speed thing again only to find that she runs out of legs at, yup - you guessed it - 160KMH.
I am curious because I would have thought that a scoot with a 95 CID engine would easily achieve 200KMH. Again, please don't think that I am some kind of speed freak. I have noted that the bike really isn't as crisp as I think it should be in stock form. I am contemplating modding the intake and exhaust components yet I don't relish the thought of the expense in exchange for disappointing end results. My ride has just 19,000 miles on her (US bike imported to Canada).
Just joining the conversation.
