I wonder if we can do that to our bikes? I think I will wait for some BadWeb guys to start busting that out...

I understand your concern, if it were most peoples choice I'd be riding on a Buell Blast for 12,000+ miles until I could even step up to a Ninja 500. I know everyone is just trying to look out for the well being and safety of others but I think people tend to exaggerate the OHV liter V-Twins power....alot.

Lately I've been getting alot of ride time on our three dirt bikes here. A 125 2 stroke, a 250 2 stroke, and my 200 4 stroke...when it works. Everyone told me I can't handle the 2 strokes, that they're potential death machines even idling and that if I get on it it will be 100% guaranteed pure death....

Then as I was frustrated at my broken 4 stroke I got on my fathers racing geared Suzuki 125 2 stroke...and after 2 hours of slow familiarization with the bikes handling, clutch, and gears, I was ready for a cruise... All I could think about the entire time was "Man, forum go'ers kinda uhm...exaggerate power...alot"

I would never buy a liter I-4, but if I want a Buell and they only make big v-twin's I'm not going to settle for a moped and be unsatisfied for years to come.

I visit my cabin about two to three times a year depending on some factors. I couldn't imagine taking an air cooled twin for a 4 hour cruise without it getting hot and getting way too rich. The heat coming from those air cooled engines on a 90 degree day also don't feel too good...

The problem with the new bike for me is, now that it's a DOHC and has been tuned for racing, I doubt I could make it a starter bike. I'm still thinking about it though because everyone on my dirt bike forums stressed that a 125 2 stroke geared high is such a devilish monster and the front wheel gets way too light and that I'll kill myself on my RM125...yet when I rode it it seemed tame to me, I handled it just fine..so we'll see.

Bluebolt man i logged into the buell site hoping for some exclusive specs, prices or something but just seen a few extra pics and vids.

i really like the bike but that front needs some 'adjusting' also i think id give it a year or two for the bugs to get worked out since its a totally new design.

still think its badass though

Heh... Going to the liquid cooled engine is the beginning of ruining these bikes for me... I like the retard simple nature of the Buells...

Phenix_Rider Funny thing is- that rear shock is mounted the same as my 650R!

Steel braided lines front and rear and a wicked rear caliper setup. They definitely need to scale down those air scoops though. And the headlights

I'm actually not into the white. I admit it looks good...but I'd rather have the red on black.
