Erik Buell, founder of the company with the same name, managed to amaze the motorcycle industry from around the world by destroying his own creation, a model which no further represents Buell Motorcycles: the Blast.
The Buell Blast was manufactured for 9 years in the United States and it was powered by a 492 cc single-cylinder engine developing 34 hp. Given also the bike’s light weight, the Blast stood out as a user-friendly and very reliable motorcycle.
Instead of showing how the 2010 model year will look like, Erik Buell brought bad news to the British from Mac Motorcycles , which will start producing a range of motorcycles powered precisely by the engine repudiated by the creator itself.
Buell’s entry-level segment is pretty much sorted out by the 2009 Blast model, a small, light and versatile motorcycle powered by a simple, but claimed very fuel efficient, 492 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine.
Among all models of the American motorcycle manufacturer, this is the only
one that gets a nice European look, but features such as the aggressive wheels, one-piece seat and belt final drive still set it apart.
The Buell Blast is a motorcycle any rider will enjoy. This lightweight single inspires confidence in beginners, yet offers enough power and refined agility to satisfy the performance expectations of the most experienced motorcyclist. Easy to own and maintain - and easy on fuel at 68 miles per gallon - the Buell Blast is a fun and economical way to get around town or down the highway.
