You mean the Bosnian ones? Thanks.

They are supposed to go up to 120 km/h, but because they are intercity, i doubt they will go over 90 km/h.

There are also the new Bosnian Talgo tilting-trains:











The new Talgo trains usually go over 200 km/h, but on our railways they will reach up to 160 km/h.

And some more of the intercity, and talgo:
