Top Speed

Steven Evans /

Evening All,

I have a 2016 Peugeot Vogue with 123 miles on the clock. But, the top speed I have had out of it so far is 31kmh (19mph). Is this normal?! Will it 'loosen' up over time? Could the speedo be faulty?

Just seems a low speed even for these bikes!

Thank you.

Will it 'loosen' up over time? Nope!

Could the speedo be faulty? Yes, it could be off but not 10+ mph bad.

Theres a Wikipedia about the Vogue, all in German though. But in das section about motor, it mentions 2 versions. One being good for 25 kmph and another at 45 kmph. So, she’s either exceeding expectations or coming up quite short. I’m guessing you’ve just got the more restricted one:(

Right, ok. Thanks for the replies.

No idea what 'full tuck' means.

You have a 25 kph model for sure. That's just the speed they goes.

Re: Top Speed

It means squat down and ride in an uncomfortable,but streamlined position.

:) Ah right. Thanks. I think I'll try derestricting it instead though.

Standard, when my Maxi still had one it showed 36kmh when it only got to 29, later the Spring wore out and it started to show 60 at 40, and in the end it was back at 0 when going 10kmh.

Re: Top Speed

Most of the speedos, because it's cheap to do this way, are calibrated at one point, usually expected stock max. so tomos get set to read 30 at 30. and zero is obviously zero, so they read pretty accurately in that range. but above that top expected setpoint, single point calibration cheap speedos can get quickly way off. eg: 45mph readings on 35mph tomos'

Take. It to nj.

You do gain 2% engine gain due to altitude and avg temp/humidity... Slap a biturbo and a 14,12 on that a3...
