It is actually a Rotax engine, not made in the USA but Austria! Very similar to what Aprilia has been using for years.

Thanks I'll send that link to the skeptical editor

It's now on

And it looks as if Erik and his minions did their homework.

Okay, from a styling standpoint, it's a bit odd, but those choices are supposedly functional. As par for Buell, a few interesting engineering features, too.

Looks like a contender, if only for the price...$11,995 MSRP.

Oh, sh*t! It's only $11,995! They do seem serious, don't they?

Eh, that should be $11,995. Why can't I edit my posts?

-It's also a claimed 20lbs lighter than the previous 1200cc models. 375lbs vs. 395lbs.

I agree about the styling..not as clean as the current Firebolt. But still looks interesting.. Need more pictures i.e side views and different colors ..

I say, leave it in all black (okay, maybe those "Cherry Bomb" wheels would look nice); it might look ultra dopey in another color. In black, it at least looks kinda Road Warrior-ish. It could be one of those bikes that looks a lot better in person.

Yep Saw a new yellow 1098 at the gas pump some young stud with young girl on the back with a helmet flip flops, halter top, and shorts :rolleyes: .. But hey the bike sure looked and sounded great. He had full leathers on..:confused:
