    To Uk riders this would seem quite slow. The speed limit on duel carraigeways & Motorways is 70MPH (112KPH) but on the motorways most traffic travels at 80-85MPH (128.7 - 136.KPH). My NC700X has no trouble cruising at these speeds

    Hi Rocker

    It is certainly good to hear about the capability of this little moto, because I usually avoid freeway or autobahn, or any speeds above 100kmh.
    I am not afraid of high speed or anything like that, but I'd rather like to travel leisurely with my NCX because it is kinda of a hobbycraft for me.
    Also, straight roads are for me a quick way to get to someplace, but then I prefer twisties.

    I was just clocking 100km yesterday with a friend along sunny twisty mountain roads.
    Yes I know I am lucky to live here.

    I wouldn't consider it lucky to live anywhere (regardless of how beautiful it may be) if I'm limited to 62 MPH. I would probably die through falling asleep. Also my commute would take too long

    One can certainly choose to speed along (risk of fine, etc) , but it is not the culture here because everyone takes it easy. (even rushing to work is not the norm here) Regarding the RPM, I decided to forgo the GIPRO gear indicator install, because I learned that I am in top gear when it is between 2600-3000 at 90kmh.
