Cool How fast can the 1250 go?

Hi,
Just had the 1,000 km run-in service performed here in Sydney. On the way home I noticed that the max speed on the Nav VI (was on 115 km/h) now read..... wait for this.... 281 km/h.... Wow those guys really know how to do a post service check ride Attached the screen shot from the Dashboard option. Tempted to not reset it - this is so cool.
Cheers
John

That must be the high performance version of the 1250 that you have

I think the stated top end is 125 mph, but I've never check. I alway look back to when I had a 1987 K100RS Motorsport pegged at 145 mph indicated and a buddy on a 1100 GSXR blew by me like I was standing still. Now I ask mysef why would I want to go that fast, I'll only get passed by a faster bike.

Had the navigator on my previous XR. Top speed was 254kph. The r1200gs top speed was 221kph. You can always take it aboard a Boeing and record 450!

Your dealer must have taken your NAVIGATOR on board his private Lear Jet... must be affordable with those BMW rates...
