I have an old 1975 Kawasaki F7 175cc Enduro that I've used to commute with off and on for many years now. It is a 2-stroke rotary valve single, and it usually gets between 65 and 70 under normal conditions. Recently I began riding it on a 40-mile commute on secondary country roads at about 45 mph and got as high as 77.1 for a couple of tanks, when the wind was mostly at my back. It does not like to go much faster than that under any circumstances, and neither do I, when I'm riding it... Know what I mean?
