Manufacturers don't always get it right.
My 2008 Harley Ultra couldn't effectively use 6th gear under about 75 or 80. Mileage suffered and any incline sucked.

My 2010 does much better due to revised gearing and changes I've made to the power.

Oh and mine can scream down the highway bouncing off the limiter at 6100!
