Top speed
 
I'm leaning towards buying a new 2018 850 high lifter but I wanna know the top speed stock. because the internet doesn't show

i remember this was discussed last year, there is a good thread on here that mentions top speed and gears to swap out on a HL to go faster, hopefully for u someone will post the link up . Maybe with a search u will find it .

If you are a go fast guy, maybe the highlifter isn't quite the right choice...

50 mph to 55 approx and thats on rev limiter of engine 3 of my riding buddys have them and like them but they are a mud specific bike ,

I just picked up an 850SP. If you are looking for a speed comparison, I saw 72MPH with it on the gravel road in front of my house last week. Still had throttle left.

DAMN - my red prototype 850 doing only 66mph... :nerd but maybe that's good / maybe I'll live longer :grin

55 mph, 7,700 rpm. Tough to do that in mud, tho.

Riders like to quote their top speed but forget to say the altitude that was at. Difference between sea level and 10'000 feet can be as much as 10 MPH. And tire size will make a big difference also.

In this case altitude will not affect top speed because it's rpm limited, the quad will reach top rpm regardless of altitude. And going to a 2 inch bigger tire only gets you about 2mph more
