Top speed is over rated in a street bike. It's more about how quick you get to a certain speed for me.
Back in the day, I had a GTO that would've had most shitting themselves. Wasn't much for top end speed but it got there real quick if you could keep it on the road.
Even factory, it was a powerful machine.
I rarely go faster than 70mph now days or even use 5th gear.

And, for me, that is the allure of the electric motorcycle; now if they could just increase the range & decrease the charge time...
