Geez,

I thought my 2001 lightning was different! Only Buell could make a (old) Buell look run of the mill........



Now if they can just add some power

I'm disappointed. Clearly this is just a modification of the 9R. That would be fine if they were selling that well. Maybe they are and I admit that I don't know for sure, but somewhow I doubt it.



Personally, I was hoping for a replacement for the S3T. Something one could really travel on w/significant fuel range and hard bags. Neither of the XB bikes are anything but day ride/sport bikes. I won't be waiting another year for a Buell sport-tourer, but I wish them well (BTW, that 3.7 gal. gas tank just dosen't cut it, all innovations aside).

LOL Hey longride I saw this flyer for yoga for Sr. Citzens. Maybe if you took that you would be able to ride bikes with out sticking your feet forward. Yep you are right one week with me I would fix Buells problems. Heck one week I could fix Harley's problems as well.

Overall I like the styling, but I would have to agree with the others, that rear fender doesn't flow with the rest of the bike. The fender needs to be elimintated completely or at least redone.

This is the bike I should own someday, except for now I'm getting acquainted with my new Triumph Speed 4. The Triumph and Buell seem to be very similar bikes. I hope some magazine or other will see fit to test the two together.

I'm also waiting to see if they come up with a sport touring version with this frame but more long distance ergos, somewhat larger wind screen and a little more power or a 6 speed would really make an interesting bike.

Looks like the back end of a Ducati monster. Harley always coping and then trying to take credit

We had no issues with the exhaust causing heating problems to our tire. When you ride the bike it appears that the turbulence generated by the rear wheel, your foot and off the lower belly pan is enough to disperse the exaust away from the bike.
