Buell rumors

You all know how rumors works, 1 guy tell another guy, he toll somebody else then after a dozen persons you hear the rumor but transform at a certain degree.... OK, here is the rumor: Buell is changing engine for their bikes in 2007. from who did I heard that? from a buddy who have a buddy working in THE LARGEST SELLER OF HD AND BUELL in Quebec and ( I think but not sure) in Canada. At what level the engine will be different? Lets speculate on this......

Anything that is a HD motor would be the greatest improvement. I have test rode Buells and their motor is their biggest short coming!

A fresh design, dedicated to the buell line only would be nice but perhaps too much to ask. A shrunken/lightened VROD motor mabye? I dont know, but whatever it is... it will be a twin fo sho.

Whoa!!!

A buell with a vrod motor in it! Cool... Increased displacement, more hp, higher torque numbers... think R1 numbers...



That'd be a great rumor.
