vickytulla - Bro yesterday night I used that Ulysse Speedometer aap for the first time. I was on canal road with my gs150 and I was gunning it down real hard to know the top speed of the bike. Out of no where a cg125 guy started to race me. I throttled the bike to maximum and soon I was riding at 105 km/h on the speedo. The shegee guy tried to catch me but I know that at 105km/h I am out of reach for shegee-dumchi-removed boys. When I reached home I took out my phone and BAAM!! I was shocked to see that actual top speed, according to aap, was just 101km/h. This means that the shegee guy was not even at 100km/h :o
Previously at canal and ring road, I have had been head to head with modified shegees (engine modification) and I know that when my bike speedo shows 110km/h I am out of their reach (unless I have to brake in which case shegee take over momentarily due to higher acceleration). The test yesterday night showed that even with engine mods shegee still would manage to do only around 105km/h (this figure is calculated based on the 4~5 speedometer error on my bike which wwas identified after yesterday's test) :S
I love the shegee sound and know it to be a powerful bike but yesterday's test proved that stock bike doesnt even do 100km/h. And for those who have ridden on canal road, you can actually get pretty good speed on this road as its wide, clear, well carpeted and most of all, it channels air perfectly giving you maximum attainable speed on your bike. No wonder I used to overtake shegees at 100km/h (speedometer reading) on GT road. I had long suspected that shegee struggles to do even 95km/h on the open highways where wind drag slows down the bike :-!
By contrast Ravi Piaggio is a much better bike. I know it to achieve 110km/h on GPS test and also have enough torque to pull weights beyond shegee's capacity to places like Thandiani The Ulysse speedometer app has been an eye opener indeed
