Buell motorcycles

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.

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.

The Buell Ulysses is an Adventure Sportbike of almost unlimited versatility. Its broad, V-Twin powerband and rigid chassis make it a capable performer on urban streets and winding backloads. Comfortable, upright ergonomics, a roomy cockpit, and a wide seat provide all-day comfort for rider and passenger. Available hard-shell sidecases and top case transform Ulysses into a long-range touring mount, ready to roll from Interstate to back road to fire road and anywhere in between.

A metro-middleweight, the Lightning CityX XB9SX is the perfect tool for the rider who needs to slice through congested traffic, blast away from green lights, dodge construction zones and occasionally bump a curb. The tall Skyline seat helps the rider see over traffic.

The expanded ergonomics of the Lightning Long XB12Ss make it better suited to taller riders. The wheelbase is stretched two inches, to 54 inches, thanks to an extended swingarm. The seat is taller and wider than that of the XB12S, and the expanded tail section offers more room for a passenger. There’s also a larger under-seat storage compartment.
