12 to 16 mph from the factory. They don't want you to get killed then sue. Many aftermarket companies manufacture motors and controllers to get you over 20 mph. Add a rear gear set, 48V and a 600 amp controller with a high speed/high rpm motor and you're going 35mph. Bottom line is that speed costs about $1500 in a golf cart.
