Hmm, I have ridden several Buells in the last couple of years and they seemed to run out of motor right when you thought they were going to come on strong. Really easy to hit the rev limiter cuz I was wanting more.
They ride great and handle awesome but the motor was the holdup.
Now that they put this motor in it I may have to reconsider.

From the sound of things that shouldn'e be a problem....

It was the same for me before I bought my Speed Triple. I rode an XB12S plenty of torque too short on legs....

I can't believe no one has anything to say regarding this bike... ????

This thing looks like it will right the wrongs of the previous Buells, the power to weight ratio is pretty impressive....And hey it's water cooled....hasn't the engine been the knock on Buell's?

No its made by Rotax. Well they say engeneered by Buell with Rotax. But i think they do most of he manufacturing. Shouldnt be too bad. I understand they make the engines for the Aprilla bikes? Mabye im wrong.
Either way i really think its neat to see a V-twin out there, for kicks.
It looks like Batman should be pulling up on this thing. I want one

I like that when you open their "minisite" the loading progress is metered by going around the little barber track.


sorry, just thought that was cool.

i think this bike is going to be exactly what buell has made itself good at...marketing hype. they say the bike is based largely on what they learned from the xbrr. sorry, but i wouldn't be basing my latest greatest sportbike on a race bike that never even finished a race it entered.
