My ES100 action produces up to about 100 during regular playing and up to 115-127 by applying force.
Regular playing is mp and mf dynamics? mp and mf should be about 60-80. Do you sure that you use "normal" internal velocity curve of ES100?
Regular playing meant anything between and including p and f. Playing mp/mf happens around 50 to 64 with the "Normal" touch setting and the internal sound seems to reflect that. In the 64-80 range it gets quite bright already.
The medium range moves above 64 with the "Light" touch setting and allows reaching 127 by pressing hard, but the silent note detection also moves up, so it's difficult to play velocities below 45 then.
Currently I'm using a more rounded sinus-like curve:
Velocity = [0, 16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 111, 127; 0, 10, 28, 50, 72, 93, 112, 124, 127]
Maybe there isn't "the" curve for the ES100, as build quality seem to vary quite stark on Kawai instruments.
