Help needed to reach required speeds!!!

Hi. I'm fairly new to riding. 

I own a ybr 125. I've been told by the seller and by the owners manual that I need to keep the rpm down and limit it until so many miles. But this seems to be causing a problem in getting the bike to go above 40-45mph. Ideally I need to be doing 50mph at the most. Am I doing something wrong or is there an easier way to reach 50mph at a low rev count? I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!
