2006 Buell Firebolt XB9R

The middleweight Firebolt XB9R is powered by a snappy Thunderstorm 984 V-Twin engine that serves up 92 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 70 ft. lbs. of torque at 5,500 rpm. The XB9R is a scrappy performer that offers precise handling and outstanding drive out of the corners.

Inspired by the track. Built for the street. The Buell Firebolt is less a machine and more an extension of your body. Precision handling. Raw power. Exotic style. Any the way you cut it, its the ultimate sport-riding experience.
