2004 Buell Lightning® XB9S
Purpose built bikeBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 19, 2008
Know what you are buying. If you are looking for a bike to get around town and very limited highway usage (no wind protection), this is the bike for you. It looks the way a sport bike should look and sounds like a sport bike should sound but.....if its hot outside (80 degrees or higher) be prepared ... to serve your legs up on a bun because they will cook. This bike has tons of torque and is geared for endless wheelies and massive acceleration. Everyone will take notice and say "What the hell is that." If you want to blend in, do not buy a Buell.
