Buell 1125R

Performed my 'Repost Due Dilligence' through page 5 and didn't see anything so here goes:

72 degree liquid cooled, claimed 145bhp, BUELL!!!!! Now you finally get all the trick engineering AND a real engine (Rotax I believe).

info from here

buell1125r

2008 Buell 1125R

Specs: (from the video)
Liquid Cooled 1125cc 72º Rotax (maybe?) V-Twin
146 HP, 84 lb-ft torque, 10,500 RPM redline
6 Speed Transmission
Hydraulic Vacuum-Assist Slipper Clutch
ZTL2 Brake System
54.5″ Wheel Base
5.6 Gallons Fuel-in-Frame

What were they saying about dirt bikes?

Big Thanks to Adam for the tip!

UPDATE: Looks like they took the video down. Oh well. Specs are as stated above. Hmm…

OK, for those of you who missed it, it’s a Buell sport bike, not a dirt bike. They may have a dirt bike or two in the works but the 1125R is very much along the lines of their present line up. Twin headlamps, nice looking bike, guess we’ll have to wait a little while longer. Nice specs, though. (just added pics)

Further thoughts: Let’s see, didn’t WSB just decide to up their displacement limit for V-Twins to 1200cc? So Ducati could race, right?

Another Update: The Rotax name may be in question, it may be a V-Twin from somewhere else, … still checking.

Aprilia used rotax with great success. About time Buell got a decent engine.
