Dunno mate, never had one but I know from what ive read that they are not fast, they are not supposed to be fast bikes, take it easy or get a DT125X if you want fast... ;) I would guesstimate about 60 myself.

Mr Ttaskmaster might have some opinion on this, possibly Goff ?? There are a few folk with these sort of bikes who can give you some real advice, rather than the gusssing game I'd have to play.

As a comparison, my missis had a XL125 Varadero (V-Twin), and I could get that just above 75, but the bike only had 1500 miles on it, so the engine was hardly broken in.

Yea im not getting why i keep hearing that the dragstar can hit 70 in 4th gear, a lot of people have said 55-60 max. i have pushed 65 on dual carriage way but nothing over that. And my bike only has 5.5k on it. and only had 1900 when i got it.

Hey barwell yea but the Aprilla Gilera is a very light and small bike, the dragstar is like 150 kilos dry weight 4 stroke, cruiser....but yes i have hit the 65 mark on a long dual carriageway (straight) but i remember Ttaskmaster saying that this bike can hit 70 in 4th???? i want to see this...my bike only has 5000 miles so i dnt see why that would be affecting it

The 1100 is limited to 170kph in high gear. It'll go something like 158kph at the chip in 4th.

From literature, not experience.

Although I did have it at 150kph this week going round a truck on my way to work. Nice

What displacement is your bike?

Edit: Sorry, now I see 125. I thing 65mph should be going pretty well for 125.

im not sure man.....

my 74 dt175 does 70+ mph.

when i got it the odo said 2600 miles.

either it was barely used, the soppdo was replaced, or it was rolled over.

Right.....

Yamaha XVS 125 Dragstar - 2002 model.

Unmodified in anyway. 15,000 on the clock.

MY top speed on flat motorway = an indicated 76mph in 4th gear.

How to do it?

Use the search function and read the several other posts I've already put up about it.
