Default This is what he means

"The cylinder heads and the top quarters of the cylinders are cooled by water,[ The lower 3/4 is cooled by fins] which is cooled, in turn, by an unobtrusive black radiator snuggled between the front downtubes." Motorcyclist Online.

Enough of this V-Rod water cooled air cooled CRAP!

Which bike is faster down a really tight twisty road?

The new Buell 1125R or a Ducati 1098 or a Honda RC51 or an Aprilia RSV1000R?

For that matter which of these three bikes is faster around the streets of The Streets of Willow (1.8 mile road course)?

Oh and by the way the article said that Honda stopped making the RC51 but if you do a search for 2007 Honda RC51 in Google you find plenty of sites talking about it.

Let's get this conversation back to where it belongs, about a new sport bike and how fast and far it can be ridden comfortably.

Does any one else love the idea of heated grips on a sport bike?

Smile 1125r

Good for Buell! This new 1125R sounds like it will be one FUN to ride curve carver with power to spare. Based on the pics I'm rather suprised to see the dark look instead of Buell's more normal use of bright, attractive color.

If the ergos are what I suspect, from the pics, I'm unfortunately not a candidate for one of these no doubt very capable bikes...nutzz. OTOH the Uly, with its modified Sporty lump is a very comfortable and impressive bike. I rode one @ 2 weeks after I got my new '06 FJR....otherwise I would have purchased the Uly. Well, maybe in a couple of years a new Buell of some sort? This little company continues to put out ever better motorcycles full of innovative thinking; more sales success to them! DFO

Why? I've never seen one ridden when it's cold enough to possibly turn them on. Maybe the guys at the Burger Barn would be impressed though.

Not in the slightest. I'm waiting for someone to come out with a seat and grip cooling system so I don't roast my ass and hands after the bike has been sitting in the sun all day at work, or fry at every stoplight on the way home.

It seems like the only reason they're entertaining it on this bike is because of the substantial "air envelope" around the rider. That fairing is huge.

Yeah well were you actually out riding when it was that cold?

I've had my in Show Low AZ one morning at 18°F.
