Well don't you guys have it rough? Those damn Buells have been calling loudly to me lately and I think the old CityX might just be winning me over. There ain't a bike you listed in the whole test that I would feel bad about owning. Life is good these days. Very good.

Thanks guys. Always a great day when you get to ride "naked"



Question on the FZ-1; Has the '07 FI been "fixed" to resolve the snatchy low speed response? Or, is there a fairly resonable fix (pcIII, sync, pipe..etc) that has been used with good results?



(I got to use snatchy & naked in the same post)

Default Re: A Cool Short for the Short of Inseam

Although you tested the XB12s Long, Buell also offers the XB12s cg, which is something NONE of the other naked bike makers offers: a real sportbike that people with short legs can ride.



Erik Buell is a wise man. He knows that short people also like to ride sportbikes and resent being relegated to the cruiser section of the showroom by virtually every other bike maker.

Default I rode that thing, mon!

At Buttonwillow and on the street ride during the 2007 Buell press intro. It was pretty fun, too. In fact it was more fun than the Long, but I had already ordered the bike and it was too late to change to something else.

I can't believe the Ducati and the Triumph weren't included instead of at least the Honda.



I think when most people think of 'hooligan' or 'naked' bikes, these are the two they picture.



Regardless, it's nice to see a naked bike comparison.

Busload of Swiss...



It's nice to see that there are options in this category, but are any of these bikes mean enough?
