Why don't our bikes reach at least 280kmph :(

Cmon everyone, this is a bloody liter class beast that goes from 0-100 kph in 2.6 secs. I know it has the power mines the faired one, but my friend who owns a zx6r 636 out runs me everytime, he reaches close to 290 on his 636cc bike. What the he'll I own a 1000cc monster and I have more bhp and torque than his bike. At max I reached 250kmph... ****.. Why is it so

lower Rev limit and the secondary throttle plates start closing over 1000rpm in 6th gear.

Reflash and you can change both

It's not designed for top end.... perhaps you should have bought the GSX-R1000.

According to the specs the top speed of this bike is about 264kmh

Your friend probably done some mods to it?

Ok i get it now. Well I love my bike, thing is I just expected a bit more top speed from the k5 motor. Some where between 260 to 280. The gsxr 1000 goes 300 on stock but you would never get the ergonomics you get with this bike. It's super comfortable and sporty at the same time. I hope the next iteration of this bike gets a lil more top speed.

Yup... The GSXS does what it was designed to do very well. If they designed it to have a higher top speed they would have had to sacrifice other aspects of it.

250kmh =155mph. That's pretty good. I know what you're saying though I got my 2003zx6rr up to 265kmh +/- 165mph. Today I hit 140mph/225kmh on the gsx. To be honest I'm fine with that on this bike. I don't need more for sure.. there was a reason I switched from a pure sport bike to this.

I doubt it very much. Not on the naked bike. I just don't think it is designed aerodynamically to cater for those kind of top speeds.

There's an easy remedy to this problem, if you require it: TURBO! No need for aero then, just a good grip so you can hang on! The K5-K8 engine is a good platform for it.
