Thank the European Union for it. Either Kawi and Suzuki "voluntarily" limited them to 186mph/300km/ph or they wouldnt be allowed to sell cycles in EU countries. Being now the EU is the largest consumer of motorcycles now (US still is if you go country vs country), the mfgrs will listen. Be glad it was 186, because 155 was brought up also.ninja_steve said:rob, do you have any idea why the governed speed is 186mph of all speeds? ive always wanted to know.
