A premium performance motorcycle, the Firebolt XB12R is powered by a 1203cc Buell Thunderstorm V-Twin engine that revs to 6,800 rpm with pounding out 103 peak horsepower and 84 ft. lbs. of torque, delivered in a powerband so broad that serious thrust is always on tap.
This is Lightning in its purest form. The Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin engine pounds out 84 ft. lbs. of torque, a mountain of power made more tractable by the Buell InterActive Exhaust. The short, 52-inch wheelbase gives the XB12S the reflexes of a tailback. A coarse-texture seat and athletic riding position offer outstanding control.
