That looks quite mad.

A friend had a CBR250RR four stroke bike that redlined at 21 and a half grand. Madness. It sounded like an F1 car.

I think he gets to about 8.5K on a motor that's redlined at 7.2K.

But has he taken it to 125% redline speed (RLS)? 26.8K.
I twice took a CB125S that's redlined at 9.5K though the red band and 1K back into the green at 12K (125%RLS). It was pulling so well at that rpm in top it didn't slow down up a hill.
Doing the calcs for port size and valve timing, the max power speed of a lot of engines will turn out to be higher than redline. Run them into the red and lol and behold there is a power peak. There's a bloke calls himself motoman with a site mototuneusa that advocates making inlet ports smaller to bring the tuned rpm down within the redline speed for proddy racing as they aren't allowed to mess with the limiter.
