What is this?

I don't know what it is. Would somebody enlighten me? Notice the chain drive on the throttle side. The only thing I know is that I want one!

That's a race prepped Buell Firebolt.

I'd like one too.

A black Firebolt! I want one!

Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.

I never thought I would find anything appealing about a Buell. I do like it though.

Check out the front brakes, they did away with the ZTL single rotor and put on dual rotors.

I'd like to see where they mounted the muffler.

It's probably in the usual place for Buells. Under the engine where you can't see it.
I like the frame-tank idea.
This is the first purposeful looking Buell I ve seen!

it doesn't look like there's enough room under that lower for a muffler

Very nice!!!!

The muffler is still mounted underneath the bike. You can see it very good on the stock bike which doesn't have the lower fairing, just a chin spoiler.

Question

I haven't really been keeping track of the Firebolt since it was introduced. Has anyone (publication, website, etc.) tested it yet, and is it for sale to the public yet?
