Default Re: Buell's V-twins aren't

Buell doesn't make the Cyclone anymore and I'm certain you could pick almost any manufacturer and find at least one person with a horror story.

After the VFR, SV650 and Concours riders are done whining there isn't enough oxygen left to be a hyperventilating bitterman.

The VRSCA has an Aluminum finish, While the VRSCB has a Black finish.

Next will come the two tone 100 year anniversery model VRSCS&B, and for the police version the VRSCB&W/wL&S.

Enlightened now ?

Default Following

I've thought about why they haven't done much with the v-rod and I think I know why. Harley corp is trying to build a following with the v-rod and it hasn't materialized to their expectations. When Harley does something they want the product to have "at minimum" a 10 year life with only minor upgrade iterations during those years. Look how long it has taken to just rubber mount the Sportster. Notice that they didn't fuel inject the Sportster....yet. Within 3 years it will have fuel injection. Harley doesn't pisss money away on anything. Everything is measured and calculated to return the faithful to the dealer to get the latest model with its small iterative upgrades. I know for a fact that many Harley riders trade their mounts in every other year with only a few miles on those bikes. Personally I'm kinda of like Harley in that I keep a bike for at least 10 years before I get another. That way, there are really noticeable changes that make it more worthwhile for unleashing the cobwebs in my wallet. Besides, I get pretty attached to my bikes because I do the maintenance along the way.

Anyways, back to the v-rod. I'm not sure what they have in mind in terms of using the revolution motor but you can bet they are building something. I'd hope they would throw that engine into a touring rig and tune it for a great low and midrange. Doing 130 mph is not something that is necessary in a touring bike.

Default Just my tastes, mind you.

They need to get rid of that insect stalk looking thing that holds the handle bars and gauges. Looks femmy to me.

Default Demo's XB12S

I rode the 12S Buell in Milwaukee the other day and it just flat out hauls ass. Naturally it feels fast in comparo to my 97 glide but everyone including me was pulling the front wheel up on the demo ride. It is a great looking bike and I'd love to have one some day.

Default Corbin

Ugly as sin in this eye of the beholder. All corbin crapola looks alike. Beatle bags and all that other stuff has the same curves and really looks like shiite. JMHO
