Well, I can say it looks nice; however, it seems they based it from the FZ1. The front light are almost the same except they are round. I guess you cannot blame Buell from trying. That exhaust pipe sucks though. It would of been cool if they made the exhaust like the ducs have.

Looks like a Buell to me.... it's cool how it stores the engine oil in the swing arm and the fuel in the frame rails instead of the typical tank.

Cool

Man, I go on leave and when I get back the world has turned upside down. A new Buell, and a new power cruiser from Harley. And rumor has it there is another Buell on the way. Judging from the price of this one I expect an even more performance laden Buell coming in around 12-13000!

Ride the Pace,
JD

Hey JD, hold on 'cause some wild s**t's coming out very soon. That Porsche tweeked VR motor's found it's way into a sportbike chassis with spectacular results. Funny how using plastic from other sportbikes can mask test mules

What's funny about all the slam's on Harley motors is that everyone likes to suggest that EVO's and TC88's are no different than Shovel's which is pure bull. A review of factory recalls for powerplant problems will show the big 4 with a healthy dose of manufaturing defects.

Now with the VR based motor showing respectable numbers (in a usable RPM range) I guess the nocks will be about PRICE, which sadly will be a fact of life for a few years.

I'm just thrilled to see HD FINALLY bringing out something that will compliment the Buell design format. It sure is getting interesting. (BTW did you note that the VR motor has Mahle pistons...same company that builds all of Porsche's racing pistons...them babies aint cheap) cool

Our greatest challenge in life is living up to our own potential.

Cool

True! I had a Harley for 5 years before my current bike. I rode the pis out of it and never had any trouble except for a cracked diaphram in the carb. An easy fix. The evo was a good motor, the twin cam was even better! I can't wait to see the new Buell with the VR motor! Guess I'll have to get a downpayment ready!

Ride the Pace,
JD
