I don't know if this has already been posted but: Here's a link to Buell's new Firebolt. I kinda like it myself. Any thoughts?

Can't wait to test ride one

Thumbs up Hey

I'm actually thinking of buying one sometime next year. It'll probably be late next year because I'm sure the bike will have multiple recalls and I would like to get one after those have been taken care of.

It looks good until you get to the nose - it looks like shit - does not even look like it belongs on there. Just looks like it is suspended in air.

I like some of what is going on, but the goddy swingarm has to go also.

Damn...... thats one seriously ugly bike.

I see they finally put the oil reservoir in the rear swing arm. Now while it leaks oil, it will spray past the tire, rather than right on it. Ingenious.....
