Brand new car, so I haven't pushed the limits of the engine yet. Perhaps after the first oil change.

I normally turn on the cruise control around 120km/h. Don't want to get a ticket.
Ontario laws on speeding and "road racing" are absurd and I definitely don't need the hassle.

Haven't done any long road trips though, I'd probably try to push to 140km/h... not sure if I'd be comfortable going much faster.

I was pretty surprised at how stable the car felt at 140. I wouldn't do this on a regular basis at all but hey, I had to know.
130mph and still pulling, provided no one was looking. Just the desert, cold air, "new brakes" and a vehicle that sans a little tightening on the ole spring rate could easily do much better with just a little squirt of happy gas. The engine was rebuilt after knee high water met with the intake (which was below knee ). Slightly larger pistons and some awesome work by H&R Racing make triple digits an easy target. Unfortunately this is So. Cal. and most the time is spent below 10mph. 4 years, 90k and yet I still love this vehicle. Yes, maybe foolish, but the only damage would have been to the rocks and sand for they now would have the pinkish hue we Honda owners know as "Milano Red".
Its a "Fit". Drive it like ya stole it. Kudos Honda, kudos.

The most I've done is probably between 85-90mph. I'm curious, for those of you going about that same speed or higher, which gear does your car kick into then? At 85mph mine is usually on 3rd gear.

Default Fast

105+ on Hwy 93 south of Kingman, Arizona on our way home from Las Vegas. We were cruising along at about 75 and a pack of high dollar BMWs, Mercedes, audi, and a couple of other vehicles blew through, so we hopped into the middle. That stretch of highway is a divided 4 lane mountain road with lots of roller coaster turns and our car stuck like glue. We have the sport model, bone stock. The only complaint was it was underpowered on some of the uphill sections. Other than that I felt like a kid at a go kart track.

I hit 110 MPH in my Fit Sport on the way back to Mesa from Vegas. A little KIA Rio wanted to give me a go. like he said this thing is like a go kart and hugs the road around the bends. felt safe at an unsafe speed!

Well I did 190 MPH once on my partner cruiser just to see, what it would do a bit of a down mountain awesome bit, of end breeze she didn't really proper care too much for that on her car so I haven't tried since.
