AMA FX & Buell XBRR

So Buell decides to build 30 or 50 full-on, turn-key race bikes to enter in the Formula Extreme class. A class that is currently being dominated by 600cc sportbikes.

http://www.buell.com/en_us/mania/racing/xbrr.asp

The Buell's are kinda purty and have some interesting engineering in them.. fuel in the frame, oil in the swingarm (?) but um.. 1340cc V-twin against 600cc I-4's?? Sad. I don't care what engine technology you are using, you still should not be allowed to use +2x the displacement in a certain class.

Buell had 4 of these bikes entered in the Daytona 200.. none of them finished. It was kinda funny when i read on this article that the problem was reportedly 'broken FCC clutches made in Japan"

:dontknow: but I thought this was a purty funny pic and caption.

"I suppose that's Japanese oil gone bad too?!"
