Speed isn't a matter of rpm, it's a matter of power. A 600 that produced peak power at 16200rpm, assuming typical modern compression ratio, would make about 105hp. A 150hp bike with just a typical sportbike/roadracer fairing and the rider in full tuck will reach about 150mph. Of course we don't know that the R6 produces peak power at 16200rpm, only that it will rev that high before the rev-limiter kicks in - but it's probably close.
