Well, lets see. In deep snow maybe 80, on a packed smooth road, plowed, I say 100. On a trailer behind a Corvette maybe 140...if the trailer tires will hold out. On the space shuttle, 17,000 mph and with an 80 year old grandmother maybe 20-30. I would also want to know how fast it goes in reverse, if it has it. Now, you can gear it up, put a low lug track on and it could help it go faster. What have you been hearing?

90 mph is about all theyve got. They were only 95 hp.
I had a '95 XCR 600 that was pretty much the same thing. Mine was geared down for better acceleration and would only do about 80 mph, but it got up to 80 mph in a real hurry.

I had a 2000 Triumph which is the XLT with a GEN II chassis and a different name. Single exhaust, 38MM flatslide carbs and the standard .82 lug track. According to the speedo it gets to 90 pretty quickly and will eventually top out at 97. It's now at 7800 miles and still tops out the same as when it was new.

Also, my Polaris dealer told me that the Triumph was rated at 100-105HP. I also have a 2000 XC SP with the same chassis and the 600 twin/VES and the twin can walk the 600 Triple pretty easy and that motor should be making around 115.

FWIW, in 97 me and a buddy bought new sleds, him a new XC600, me a new Yam SX600. After break in on a hardpack road, totally stock and we weigh about the same ~190, we had a dead heat at 98-100 mph on the speedo. Neither pulling away from each other. Two totally different feeling sleds but the same as far as speed goes. Say what you want about the speedo accuracy, I dont know the actual speed. Just telling what happened, mine read ~98, his a touch over 100.

I think your dealer is blowing smoke up your a$$. The engine in the Triumph was the same engine the XLT and single-pipe XCR 600 had.
The 600 big block domestic twin put about 105 hp, but not the Triumph.
