Since 160 kph is approximately 100 mph, you have exceeded the design parameters.
What is the engine rpm at that speed?
It is probably in excess of 14k rpm, which is beyond its tolerances.
However, if not intentional, the most likely cause of limited rpm range would be a clogged fuel filter or too low of an octane rating in the gas.

I have a CBF1000 '08 model that jumps out of gear usually when shifting from1st to 2nd and also when shifting from 5th to 6th The bike has only travelled 3500ks !.has any one else suffered similar problems...

Jumping out of gear from 1st to 2nd usually indicates damage to the dogs of the transmission. This is common if the bike is raced and shifted hard between gears.

2006 R6 Shifting Problem

Howdy: The 3rd and 4th gears are used the most, after awhile the dog and shifting forks get worn more. Try changing to Yamaha Lube simi-syn oil 10/40. Drain oil after warm up (get trans oil warm). The oil is in a silver 4gal containe at the Yamaha dealer. This oil has helped me.
Good luck - Doug
