The NY Daily News claims that Honda advised top speed of 114 mph in this Oct 2018 article.I'm not brave enough to go that fast on the highways here in Florida, but I am curious. Is 105 top speed?? I can't find a definite number on this anywhere.

I found a vin decoder from NHTSA and it shows 120mph as top speed.https://www.automobilemag.com/news/2019-honda-insight-first-drive/
It's 120mph. The Prius can do 112-115mph.
Edit: I guess it varies by source like @insightfully said.
There's mini discussion on it in this Speedometer Gauge Max Speed thread, where @hasarad provided the quote-of-the-year stating "The only way it will go that fast is if you drive it off of a very high cliff. The published top speed is 120mph." (LOLZ)
Using OEM tire ratings as a directional indicator of upper limits, the LX/EX has V rated tires (149 mph max), and the Touring has H rated tires (130 mph max).
It's been researched, a higher limit on a speedometer triggers an automatic association with "sporty", it's a marketing thing. The only functional reason to have a speedometer go that high, is actually very simple. It puts highway speeds 65-75 near the top center of the speedometer.I wish they had maxed it out at 140 to spread the usable range of speeds further across the dial.
