Default Re: Buell XBRR News

Make that 465 lbs wet. I saw the XBRR racing at Daytona and I really doubt that they ever had 150 HP. They were just getting smoked by the 4 cylinders that had that kind of power.

Default For those who say why Race? This is why you race to get better

The GPTB crowd, longride, Buz, Fenton,etc. is always saying HD-Buell should bow out of racing...I say bunk... Look at the number of things that Buell changed... Racing is great way to test your machinery under extreme cases...It's obvious why the big 4 Japanese makers have such great quality...They Race....Kudos to Buell for racing but you they are still cheating with the huge V-Twin. Make 1000cc liquid cooled motor and race in superbike...Opps I forgot V-Twins are dead in racing..

Default underdog Overdog.

Seems like they are the overdog with the way AMA bends the rules for them.

I don"t think their cheating at all. they are probably making about the same h.p. as factory teams now if they go faster with privateers riding their bikes I"m sure the jap factorys will cry till they get some kind of penalty ,and thats ok just racing.

Yea, big over dog. 30,000 dollar buell $250,000 to $ 360,000 factory bikes from yam and honda when are you jap fans gonna get that out of your head .these are factory racing bikes ads fast as the japs can make their street bikes within the rules not a $9,000 street bike.

This is reallygood news for formula xtreme if a privateer can buy this bike and close to factory teams it might encourage other manufactures to build real race bikes.

You don't understand. Ksquid believes that racing is divinely ordered to be classed by displacement. You are wasting your breath.
