Here's the official press release of JR-East of the order for the trains based on the Fastech 360:
http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/press/20070704/index.html

and the "Tohoku Shinkansen Speed Increase" outline:
http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/press/20071101/index.html

320 km/h will be the maximum speed on the Tohoku Shinkansen.

And how come a grade separation can influence the performance of a moving veicle is beyond the scope of modern science.

Its bureaucracy not physics!!

You are quoting either EU or UIC regualtions which are classifications developed to assign different applications for funding to categories which have little or no relationship to operations.

In this case the bureaucrats consider level crossings a risk at high speeds so they will only fund high speed lines which are grade separated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CYA!!!!!!!!!!

Why 160 km/h not 140 km/h?
When the regualtions were first formulated 160 km/h was the normal maximum speed of operations on most railways!

I'm beginning to like it more. It has a great utilitarian feel, a no-nonsense practicality.

I think Alstom did it deliberately. They went for a "techno" design rather than soft aestetic lines, inter alia to underscore their sales arguments vis-a-vis Siemens. They have always harped on the more solid design of their TGVs, which for instance unlike the ICEs don't fold up in the case of derailment. A second set of benefits of the AGV is supposed to be the better energy economy and the (marginally) higher top speed. By designing the train in this slightly "edgy" way they make the following point: "Yes, yes... Siemens's Velaro is sweet and stylish. Here now comes strong and fast!"

Notice now how Siemens are talking about 360km/h for the Velaro now?

I think this is possible now, in Spain can run at 350 km / h

That's competition....

And the best thing about it is that the AGV prototype is only limited to 300 km/h because it's only 7 cars long and won't have enough brake power for it's maximum speed that can only be achieved when the train is 11 cars long. And until September the maximum speed during the tests will only be 200 km/h on the test ring in Velim. It still has to prove that it can actually reach 360 km/h in reality

Also 2 small pictures of the NTV livery.
