    And he only weighs in at 145 pounds. I'm afraid I might start modding sooner than I thought. Hopefully once more people get on the road we will get a better sample of the true top speed.

    Yes, indeed. I'm sure many will be posting their top speeds and conditions at which they do it. Lets not ASSume anything just yet.

    I had 70 showing on my speedo.......Oh hang on that's in KPH.

    Don't worry guys, it WILL do better than 55mph
    I had a Suzuki 125 struggled to reach 50mph until it was broken in.
    After that it just flew, easily reaching 65 plus.
    I expect the Honda is going to need 1000miles under it's belt before it starts to show it's best

    Anyhoo, it's a nice sunny day here.
    I'm off to put some miles (Killometers) on my Grom.

    55mph long periods, you'll need a seat and balanced tire/rims. Oh and if 40 miles straight without stops, GOOD LUCK. Man that woudl BLOW.
    Your butt will get used to it, well atleast mine did! Longest i did straigt was 175km then i had enough

    As for the modding, dont start too fast, give the engine some time and miles!

    I never expected 70! Where did you come up with that? 60mph was always top speed.

    I don't recall seeing any performance specifications or claims put out by Honda. Also, I have never had any vehicle that was more than 3-4 mph off on the speedometer. So an indicated 65 would be more like the 62 you were hoping for.

    As for me, I know it will hit 55 which is generally going to be at lest 10 mph more than I need.

    This bike is going to be great for the roads I have intended for it.
