Ninja 300 TOP SPEED!

Yes you heard right. I know its dangerous to go fast on public roads but what is the fastest anyone has taken their 300? ON a closed course in Mexico of course.

Somewhere on YouTube there is a review that sounds reputable where the reviewer said the GPS verified speed of the 300r was 103 mph. I know there are all kinds of claims for the 250r, but I think the actual top speed of that is 95.5 mph. I hesitate to mention these numbers because there are people who swear the 250r goes 115 mph.

What is of much more interest to me is what the revs are at an indicated 82 mph which, if the speedometer is about the same as the 250r, is the normal middle-lane commuting speed on I-35 where I live. The 250r was really winding out..too much I felt...and the suspension was kind of squirrely compared to the 650r at that speed. The 6th gear in the 300 should allow you to cruise at a lower RPM...say 9,000 at an indicated 82mph which would be fine and not so hard on the engine. I hear conflicting reports on how the suspension on the 300 has improved. Guess I'll just have to buy one and try it out.

I saw a clip on YouTube showing a top speed of 185kmh/114.95mph. I think the rider's weight is a factor, too, judging by what I was reading about 250s before I heard about the 300.

Sound pretty good. But I don't see where I would need it unless I was a track, even though the straight away is not that long.
