gearing has changed?        

I just did a test ride on the new 300 and it can get up to 70+, of course, but it just takes time and some serious revs.

I'd forgotten how high these smaller bikes need to rev, and was shifting a little too early at first. Given a long enough stretch of highway the bike should easily be able to top 100 mph, but if that's all someone wants from a bike I would suggest something bigger. I was impressed by the way it turns in so easily (compared to my 650R) and at how it revs about 2,000 rpm lower at 70 than my older 2008 250R.
