Gov at 110?

So my 2019 rgs with the 114 motor hits a wall at 110mph. 4000rpms. Now I don't drive that fast, so please refrain from the comments about it. But on an open road I know well, and had no vehicles on it, I decided to find out it's top speed. I assume a few people were curious like me. Hit 110 at 4000rpms and bike fell flat. So I assume it's governed to 110. Not a big deal, but still an annoying thing to have.

Sounds about right. Even a little faster than some. They don't let you peg em in high gear, its a hard setting in the oem map.

Can it not be over ridden with a Tuner?

My Highball is governed at 120(tried it a few times lol). Many have been able to over ride it from what I’ve read on Vic forum and sure it can be done on Harleys too. Pointless to me since at hwy speeds like to hang around the 80-90 range tops during normal interstate rides

That's 3mph better than it was. I know that when the 107 came out that's where it hit. Same with my 16. With my FP3 and a higher limit I was able to hit 119mph. Had to do it twice to see if I could seek out that extra 1mph. Lol.

I went home at that point.

Cars are governed at the speed rating of the tires the manufacturer puts on them, per DOT regulations. I would imagine motorcycles fall under the same regulations. I have a ThunderMax tuner, I think the governed speed can be changed or eliminated.

My 2016 hits the wall at 110 mph

Panic, chaos, disorder, my work is done here.

Right 110. My bike gets there pretty fast. A good tuner can get rid of that limit.

Yeah eventually I'll do some engine work and have that tuned out. And agreed, it gets to top speed surprisingly quickly..

I've read 108 MPH is where the speed limiter is set by the factory. Might be different with different and newer models.
