Maximum speed it will reach in some parts will be up to 160 km/h

The new intercity train seems to be the Koncar prototype.

Yes, it is. It is the first of the Koncar's new regional trains. ZFBiH may purchase more, if this one proves alright and the financials can be worked out.
Also, Croatia will be buying these for commuter and regional trains around Zagreb.

At first, it will reach the current maximum speed limit, which is 70km/h. It is not known when the infrastructure will be improved to the point where this limit will be raised.

The speed limit before the war (before 1992) was 120km/h and that is a realistic goal for our trains in the mid to near future.

There are also some speculations regarding Talgo's ability to raise the max. speed due to its tilting technology, but it is unknown how much help this will be given the state of the infrastructure.

There are sections that have been reconstructed, so it is possible to drive faster than that 70 km/h.
Where did you get this 70km/h?

70km/h is the maximum speed limit for passenger trains that is valid on all ZFBiH rails. The limit for cargo is 50km/h.

There are also sections where the limits are even lower (i.e. Semizovac-Sarajevo - 50km/h).

You can find this information in railroad forums and on ZFBiH web site.

Yes. These limits are system-wide.

There seems to be a little political angle to this whole thing where noone at ZFBiH wants to be the one who approves higher limits and put their jobs on he line in case something goes wrong.
Also, changing the speed limits involves signalization and other changes that ZFBiH in not willing to do at this time. I believe that these changes also cost money.

So, to summarize, it is just a lot easier to keep the speed limits than to "rock the boat".

It's a shame all those narrow guage rail lines were ripped up...there would be a huge tourism opportunity if some parts were to be restored. Same with old locomotives which were sold off or scrapped.

They are planning to restore a narrow gauge line from Serbia to Visegrad. And as you sad it, tourist potential is large.
