Default Is it normal for my car not to rev beyond 4000 rpm when stationary?

I have a 2004 Honda Civic (UK Model) 1.6 petrol. I have not had it long and it drives perfectly well. No engine warning lights are on. When I am parked and press the accelerator it will only rev to 4,000 rpm and not beyond.

I had not driven it for a while and noticed some smoke from the exhaust. I just revved it hard to see if it would clear, which it did, and noticed it would not go beyond 4,000 rpm.

Yes it a rev sensor or revolution sensor, it prevents you from over reeving your car and damaging it.

Why the hell are you reeving it that high anyways?
