Hello! I just got done test riding a WR450 and the guy said it topped out at 120MPH!! My dad believes him 100%, me, not so much, I think it is all BS. Therefore, he asked me to come on here and ask you guys, what is the top speed (road) on one of these bikes. I know it is a newb question and I know you won't ever use the top speed, but I just want to prove him wrong!
If you rode it, why don't you know?
Almost all 450cc WR/CRFX/KLX/RMZX top out around 80 depending on lots of factors.

'07 WR450, 90 mph on stock speedo with 14/52 gearing,
probably closer to 85 mph...the stock speedo are no where near right

optimistic speedo possibly, but now on 17" SM wheels and 14/42 gearing my Vapor reads 93 mph and that's confirmed with GPS, bike gets there quick too so I believe could be geared to do 110 or more easily if one is desperate, I have a road bike too to go fast so WR is geared down 13/42 now to fight gravity easier
as long as your speed is gps verified then i believe you:thumbsup:
as for 110 i really dont see that happening unless you have some serious motor mods
BTW post up some pictures of you bike sounds sweet looking!
