Buell has recently launched the 2010 lineup and the implicit press release for it. From there, we’re caught up by the Lightning series, one that is diversified and so allows different categories of riders to find their place on one of the three models available: the XB12Ss, XB12Scg and XB9SX.

Like any true roadster, the Buell Lightning XB12Ss offers a comfortable riding position and passenger seat (not like on a brother of it I recently met).The taller and wider seat together with the 54-inch wheelbase manage to offer a better riding position while keeping the bike as sharp-cornering as ever before.

With the 2008 Lightning Super TT, Buell delivers an outstanding Supermoto that is meant to make an awful good impression on the streets. The bike aims towards performance so the Buell Thunderstorm 1203cc V-Twin engine is used. In communion with the impressively versatile chassis and the competition look, the powerplant is extremely well valued so we’re in for an interesting ride.

The 2008 Buell Lightning XB12S enters the scene as a tire-shredding torque provider which not only enjoys offering great throttle response, but also sharp handling and a lot of innovative features that are only found on Buell motorcycles.

CG stands for center of gravity, and the Lightning XB12Scg keeps it low with a reshaped seat and lowered front and rear suspension that reduces the seat height to 28.6 inches. It’s all accomplished with no compromise to handling or performance.

Cut for the rider with a shorter inseam, the Lightning XB12Scg offers a seat height that’s 1.5 inches lower than the Lightning XB12S with absolutely no compromise in handling performance. Lowered front and rear suspension and a reshaped seat lower the center of gravity and reduce seat height to 28.6 inches for enhanced rider confidence at stops and low speeds. Power comes from the same rockin’ Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin with Buell InterActive Exhaust.

Hundreds of detailed and highly stylized entries were submitted, but only 10 finalists were chosen by Erik Buell. Then, through on-line voting by visitors to buell.com, the winner was chosen: Paul Oliver from Largo, Fla., and his design of the globe etched in stone. (...)
