06 yzf-r6 top speed

Hey, everyone. I have seen a few post on this and different boards stating top speed of the 2006 yzf-r6. I purchased my 06 yzf-r6 here in Germany new and have reached speeds of 178 mph/ 286 kph on the german autobahn as displayed by speedo no radar gun was used, has enyone gone faster, i think it will go faster traffic is tricky, germans like to to change lanes without signals.
peace ssg d.

Don't forget, European spec bikes verse US spec bikes are different. The Germans don't have the restrictions like the US have.

SSG D., Welcome to the board. There is a lot of good info here. Where are you stationed in Germany? I just left about 6 months ago after 3 1/2 years. I was stationed in Katterbach/ Ansbach. I am now at Ft. Carson Colorado. After about 2 months of being back in the states, I deployed to Iraq. No big deal, just more money to be able to spend on my 04 R6 when I get back home.

Good Luck!! Be safe on those autobahns! Make sure you wear your gear!!

Later,
SGT Harper, Thomas

I was at bike sprints today...there was a dude on an '06 R6 and on the flying, he did 161.5mph. It's timed over a quarter mile, with about a mile run up.

I did 159.8 on my '03 R6, I've put a video on YouTube here

The speedo is in KPH.

My FZ6's top speed is listed as 143mph....but i've gotten the speedo up to 158mph....DOT only requires a speedo to be accurate up to 70mph, because there are no speed limits above that in the US.
