999R -fastest bike in the world (probably)

It's just been pointed out to me that, according to the tech data at the back of last month's Bike magazine, my bike's got a top speed of 1,800 mph! I'm still running it in at the moment, so I'm only taking it to 7k revs, but this only gives me around 125. I can't see that I'm going to get another 1,675 mph on standard sprockets??

Any ideas?

Just run higher tyre pressures, a lot higher, thus your wheel size increases, acceleration is a slower but that 1800mph rush! WOW!!!

Actually this is only true if you have the Rolls Royce Olympus Turbofan with re-heat option. Certainly beats a Power Commander

no, no it's not a typo it actualy true!
I have the baby R and it will easy do around 1,600mph.
