According to what I found, the top speed is 168 MPH.

Well first there are several versions of the 999. Base model does 168MPH top speed.The 999S and 999R can do over 170MPH because of the superior exhaust setup.The 999 F06 Testastretta is said to be able to do 194MPH+Any of them have just about the best handling you'll find in a sportbike. If you get one, I'm jealous.

Is a SuperKike anything like an UberMensch? If so, then pretty fast.

They say top speed is 168, however, as a streetbike owner myself, you'll find there are many ways to make the bike go faster. If you extend the swing arm you can raise the top speed. For example. My 2005 Yamaha R1. Top speed of 170, I extended the swing arm, put on a power commander(computer generated--changes fuel&air intake), and steering stablizer (for handling). Now the bikes top speed is easily 210-230 (NOT SURE-- THAT's FAST!) If you wanna go faster than that.... NOS.

I'm gonna have to call bullshit on the extending the swingarm to get more top speed. The length of the SA has NOTHING to with top speed. the only reason guys put extended SA's is mostly for drag racing and top speed contests. It extends the wheelbase so the bike won't so be"wheelie happy"when the throttle is full open.

ducati 999 ...good bike...and honestly it can go fast like 175Mph in a plain road...if u are ding for 55sec..on increasin speed..- means full acceleration..!but it all dependet to wind and ...all sort of stuffs..but its betta not to go dat speed..cos da disc break of ducati is too good...., means it might lock up ur bike...on a supreame speed, if u tried to break!disc brake works like single arm..evev it is not!...plus...da other probl;em for dat speed is automatic electric spark ...well it wont make big problems..., it indeed it ruins your bike...!but if you are looking for a clean ride...ducati is nice bike..., and good reliable too...good luck jo

I ride a 2005 999 all stock. The posted top speeds are all too low. At 175 the speedometer goes to --- after that i counted pace with the RPMs and figured my top speed at 178 MPH! There was still more throttle to go. I backed off and have never been at that speed since...she won! and I do not know the TOP SPEED! These days I ride responsibly.
