15 front, 48 rear. Cruise dirt roads at 50-55 smooth. 60 slight vibes begin. Does great for trail riding.

Never went over 70, but it has further to go. I'm a woods trail rider, concidered fast. Never topped out because top speed is not in my type of riding,, that's supermoto conversion street riding stuff. I have knobbi tires for dirt.
