Which of their two engines will Buell use in the off road closed course competition bike, the 1200 V twin or the under powered Blast single?

Got some really outside of the box thinkers that work for a company with REALLY deep pockets... Could be something pretty cool! This may be the platform to launch a new, light compact, (more) modern powerplant that could find it's way into other models.



Who knows?

I agree. Unless they plan on doing more of a Beemer GS they kind of need to, don't they?



"an off-road, closed-course competition motorcycle"

--That doesn't sound like a GS to me. So I'm assuming if it is a competition dirt bike it's going to be 450cc or less, which doesn't match anything they offer currently.



So there will be entirely new motors everyone can complain about!

Half the Buell dealers don't even want Buell *road* bikes in the showroom next to the bread & butter. What are they gonna do with a dirt bike?

They can stack the bread and butter next to each other and jump 'em with the Buell dirt bike?



They can add fireworks and cheerleaders if it makes it fit in better.

Default Should be interesting...

Should be interesting.



Buell always comes up with some very unique answer to making an over sized under reving under achiving engine and transmission work in a totally cool bike.



Common Buell!!! Do what ever it takes to get us a new engine design.



One does wonder with all the unique ideas Buell comes up with what they could come up with in a clean sheet designed engine.

Now maybe they can give us a real single cylinder street bike. Been looking for something like that for quite some time and I ain't gonna buy a Indian Enfield although the Enfield style is just fine.

Har! I've been looking long and hard at a Ulysses and from what I can tell reading the various forums, a dirt bike (no matter how good) is not the answer to any problems Buell has. Start by cleaving Buell from HD dealers and allow them to merge in with the dealer that sells sport bikes. Then have a look at the motor, etc.
