Ummm, yeah, call me skeptical, but I'm thinking the only place you're gonna see an Aprilia Mille hit 210 mph is in the cargo hold of a jet aircraft.

The Ducati also has that feature where you can save V-Max, lap times and such. I bet other bikes do also. How about a Busa or RC51? Any other brand owner want to weigh in on here?

Only if it had the Hp to pull 10,000 with that gearing, which it does not... Again that bike would be lucky to see an HONEST 170, Period...
