Buell RX

If this is a Repost--Go ahead and Delete it BUT, I'll just leave this here.

Peak Torque
101.6 ft-lbs. @ 8200 rpm (137.8 Nm @ 8200 rpm)
Peak Horsepower

Glad to see Buell has brought that 40K Price tag down, Hopefully this one is more easier to mass produce--and HOPEFULLY this means a Naked bike in the future..

Ummm, all the time or just during braking? The engineers must have accounted for any shift in the center of gravity that having a rotor and caliper on one side would cause, or assumed it to be negligible. Now I am curious.

I would think so too. millions of bikes have been built single rotor up front. this is a modern race bike designed by a guy that you know "knows" and I am sure if there was an inkling of anything to it, change would have happened well before the release.

If it had two wheels on the front and only one rotor on one wheel then it would pull

I love it. I will be getting one.

Same brake system on all the x and newer bikes. That design holds the record for stoppies.

You are stopping a rotating mass from one side. That being said it may be very negligible and perhaps it was just something I wasn't used too so it "felt" different. But I have heard similar remarks out of people who track them...

I agree.

But the production models are about curb appeal and street use. Yes the bike was originally designed for the track. And then they made a street version...

just like that ugly fender eliminator and exhaust, if you ask me.

Other than that, it looks amazing. I like that EB Racing went the opposite direction from other bike manufactures. Instead of super edgy EBR went with clean lines and curves.

Meh, I don't think it's very appealing at all. 18k is still too high imo

there is no pull to one side, on a single disk set up. Unless as stated earlier, it was independant brakes on a multi wheeled vehicle.

Bike reminds me of the Fischer MRX 650.

I just remember the Daytona race when none of his $50k race bikes finished the race due to mechanicals........


Think I'll pass.
