It might be big mouth full of sh... euh, dreams or maybe the difference beetween euro spec speedo or the air is better this side of the ocean, or fuel or maybe we're lighter or a combination of all those but when I was looking for a CBR 125, I read everywhere they were able to run an indicated 130 km/h when really pushing it (4th well in the red then 5th, red again then 6th).
I believe 130 km/h is 83mph.
What I don't know is how much the speedo is out at that speed.

The worst gas we have is 95 RON by the way.

By the way, I went from an Helix to a GN 250 of the same mileage because the Helix transmission / wheel / stupidly vertical windscreen combo means an extra 10% fuel required for the same use
