For the first 800 kilometres, the limit was 5500 rpm. At the time, that seemed quite high enough, but since yesterday the bike has ticked over the 800 k mark and a whole new world of torque has opened up.
Not, mind you, that I had a great opportunity to try it out yesterday. The ride from work was not to home as per usual, but out to family's place in Berwick - which meant an hour and a half on the Monash carpark ... moving ... very .... slowly.
But today I got a good chance to run it up to the 8K mark. Indeed 8000 rpm in second gear puts you at around about 80 km/h. It's going to be damn hard to push the bike up to 8000 rpm on the trip to work and back - I don't get much opportunity to get it up to those kind of speeds, and I don't think running along at max revs in first gear is really what they have in mind!
