That makes sense - break it in well by not over-reving and varying the speed and after that you can run her up to the red-line on the speedo. I have a 55T rear sprocket on mine so my red-line should be around 50mph once broken in. I have about 130 miles now on the 06 so I have not exceeded 35mph but I also have not been on the highway yet. Once broken in there should be a power gain. My other 200cc, (the Reflex) certainly runs well at 3700 trail miles.
