.. just realized this one is a wee bit shorter than the other one I just watched. The other one mentioned they had quite a few problems with the bikes all day, but that they are pre-production models.

Yup, sounds just like the 'Priller!

I'd bet that the price is not that great, but probably less than the Aprilia though...

Engine sounds nice. Looks to handle well also.
Is the production model going to look the same as this one?

I like....very nice! Liquid cooled Buell designed Rotax V-Twin. Listed 146 HP and 80+ lbs of torque. Price was 11,900. Not too bad considering. AMERICAN made and designed. Lotsa tech going into this bike if you resarch the Buell site. Might just be my next bike!

Can't wait to ride one.
Every time I've ridden a Buell, I felt like just when the engine was about to start really making power, it would hit the rev limiter. The new engine sounds like it revs freely and with the displacement increase it should be a good ride.

I'll be riding the bike at a Buell Dealer event at Laguna in December.
Expect to see a Buell Superbike team in 2009.
1200 cc limits for V-twins.

Yeah the bikes okay. I'm just not really sure why anyone would really care when you've got Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Yamaha making bikes that you know you can depend on and probably run and handle just as well or better.

One thing I can tell you for sure, I'd sure like to ride that track!
