150 hp. Not bad at all. Can't wait to see a full test on this one.

So Harley makes a slow factory drag racer for 30 grand and you say they suck, but Eric makes a slow factory road racer for 30 grand and he's sooooo fuggin cool? I don't get it. Maybe I need to be a liberal to figger that one out.

what up, Idi Amin?!

something tells me this thing will be competitive instead of needing its own class. On tight tracks especially, 100 ft-lb of torque could be good, esp. since it's in probably the most advanced chasis out there.

You only need to be a liberal in order not to have knee-jerk simplistic strong reactions to things outside your comfort zone, ie, practically everything in your case.

Damn, look at them beeyootifull cases. Maybe that's how they make an HD designed lower end live at 150 hp.



I want one.



Looks like the Thunderbike series mo'sickles folks have been running lately. Even has a chain.



Rat on Eric.

Given that this machine will have a 739cc advantage over the 600 SuperSports, if raced in the AMA Formula Extreme class, it better hold its own..i.e. it has a engine as big as a Hayabusa..I still wonder how the Buell frame would do with a Ducati or Suzuki V-Twin in it..Cool to see though. Keep trying Erik..

Thank You Mr Buell!!!!!



I truly look forward to seeing it in action.

It will also be nice if some of the additional ponies make it into Buell's other offerings.



I don't follow all of the different classes that bikes race in. Where and against whom is this bike targeted to race?

In Canada liberal isn't a bad word. It means progressive and open minded...So it is no surprise to me you don't understand..

Too bad I don't live in Canada. It's even worse that you don't live there either.
