Are you sure you aren't talking about the new Buell 1125R?

Interesting - that is the bike with the Rotax designed V-twin. Specs call for 147 hp and 82 lb-ft of torque - the horsepower is about on par for a 750 cc class machine. But, the dry weight is 375 lbs, which is also on par with a 750 cc class machine. It won't be class competitive with other 1000 cc supersports, but it's probably a fun ride nonetheless.

Pretty sure you're thinking of the Buell 1125R. If im not mistaken, Buell is a division/is owned by Harley Davidson.

I think you would be talking about the new Buell. I don't think it's being taunted as a I-4 killer, but I think it will be a great bike and a big step for Buell.

I wouldn't be surprised that in 20 years or less that you will start to see dealerships that say "BUELL MOTORCYCLES and Harley Davidson motorcycles "

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

Just to point a few things, 375 is not the dry weight, 375 is its running weight , and its officially 146Hp and 84 lb-ft.
Buell designs thier bikes for the road and the twisty rides.


p.s. what 750CC class machine puts out 84lbs of tourque?

i think he was comparing the weight and general horsepower....not many sportbikes have that kind of tourque.
