It should go around 60 or so. Speeding on a atv is never good thou. Accidents happen at high rates of speed and rough terrain. Ride safe. You should be able to do anything they can.

my 400 will do 60mph. And you should kick the **** out of them in a Race if your is going to be a 400
(mine Will kick the shit out of 2 other 4 stroke 400 quads that i know of).
