    It will do as long as you maintain it well.

    that should have read.... it will do as long as you maintain it well and dont remove the limiter for no reason.

    My ducati redlines at 8500 revs. But the real power and drive peaks at 7200. On a rolling road/dyno test a few years back, the drop off in power was like dropping a brick the further up beyond the 7200 it went.

    The engine made more noise (and could potentially confuse your head if you just go off the sound) but the power just isnt there anymore, all you are doing is revving the engine higher for no reason.

    Oh, and just for reference, the only rev limit on the duke is the rider. At around 9300 revs the motor explodes into a million bits, so I am very aware of rev limits and the risks of going beyond them.
