That tail is ... uh... interesting... I wonder how tempting it would be to secure a bag over the back "parcel shelf", unkowingly or accidentally obscuring your brake light?

Wierd.

I test road a Firebolt in Loudon during bikeweek, and it is a wonderful machine. The riding position is too much for my old body, but in the new guise it ought to give any of the other naked roadsters a run for their money. Now let's see the Revolution motor in one !

Bravo Buell !

Another progressive move for H-D. I like the front end treatment better than the FireBolt, but the tail section is a bit funky. I also think the frame and swing arm would look less bulky if dark anodized. All in all, impressive year for Buell. Now,with the next generation light weight water-cooled twin from H-D this bike would be highly desirable. Perhaps the KTM LC8 engine would fit...

Hey, Man,

A bottle of agua and AND a jumbo bar of soap?

The end of the ride is lookin' better and better. At the end of 40 miles, I can have actually worn my leathers without driving off every female inside five clicks.

If Buell would just throw in...um...a kitchen sink, we'd be all set.

Default Better late than

Glad you MO guys finally acknowledged the new Buell. I was starting to wonder if you guys were all adopting the Burn's work ethic. Thanks Hackfu for restoring my faith.



I love the looks and the lower pegs. Give Buell an A for innovation and A+ for making the best out of what he is given by Harley i.e. the motor.



How about a side by side comparo Lighting vs. Bolt sometime kind of like a SV650 and SV650S comparo
