well I have an 08 and im pretty sure mine does 70 plus but like everyone else said my eyes are on the road when im going that fast but dont run first out very often maybe a handful of times theres no need to when second has plenty of pull.

hey, grasshopper,, if you come back and read this thread, then all i can say is this,,,,

what the guys here say is true about the 600 RR,, but more personally, the riding of these bikes involves a "equation" that is always changing
where ever you ride!

i, (as well as probably most of these folks here), have been on many sport bikes, including ducati, hyabusa.. they ALL give you speed and power,, BUT, that being said,  it is the "ride" and the freedom,,,  props on the gear (protective) factor..   but my thought on riding , (if you have ever seen the movie "Top GUN" you'll know this phrase,, "Ice Cold,NO Mistakes!"

that is what matters

all of this , IMHO

be safe !

Because if it will go 90 mph in first and it's a 6 speed transmission it's easy to do the math----this thing will do 540mph---DA!

 :P :P :P thats the funniest thing ive read all day, all the inmates in my unit are watching me laugh looking at me like  :-X

HURR DURRR!

It's so when im down the pub with my mates i can say "BUT MINE GOES 90MPH IN FIRST GEAR!"

Becuase buying a bike based on what mph, in what gear it will do, gives me a lot of comfort, in the knowledge that those souls are not long for this world.  :drool:
