Top Speed for VII

Recommended Posts

I seem to recall the speedo needle on my Vll in the vicinity of 240 kph, is that even possible or am I dreaming?

Guzzi claimed 135 MPH or 216 KPH.

Not unless your speedo is wildly optimistic.

240 kph is 149 mph. Even downhill a stock or near stock V11 isn't going to go that fast.

I could see 135 on a good day (a REALLY good day). A V11 is quick more than fast. It will accelerate really well for a 500 lb motorcycle with only two cylinders. But it lacks the raw power and aerodynamics to be able to pull 150 mph.

But it is good to dream.

240kmh on the odometer is really 223kmh because every instrument is out of phase by 7% due to the rule of the manufacturers.

yours is also quite optimistic or you don't have the original configuration.

On my 2002 LeMans I have pulled 225 KM for quite some time on the road but I was full throttle. So I don’t no how fare out my speed is but it was fun.
