Little bit of a contradiction there, must be a small error in the tacho?
the GPS is often a bit delayed and results not always taken for sure.
I had it on my BMW R1200 GS that a peak speed was measured with 430 kph and the last ride on my rocket from the netherlands had 338 kph in the list .o)

I would say the speedo flickers in a range about plus 4-6 kph compared to the real speed.

Come RAA West, if I bring the Panigale and we find a road long and straight enough, we can test the true top speed beyond the indicated...
@140 in the quarter she approaches 200 @ the mile but doesnt quite get there stock. You would know precisely though so tell us :cool: :thumbsup:

The speedo show 150mph but the true speed is 138mph according to my dyno. The throttle shuts down to 40% in top at 5900rpm. I have a PCV fitted and it shows whats happening. (I made one work from another bike).
