Although Buell doesn’t build bikes any more, their 1125R half-faired superbike remains a machine with great tuning potential and we’ve seen some good ones ever since HD decided to kill Buell last year, but none is as good as the Magpul Ronin Buell 1125R with girder suspension.
Looking at it, it’s easy to think this bike actually suffered no modifications whatsoever as the girder front end looks similar to the original frame and swingarm, but it completely changes the whole look of the bike. There’s actually much more to it than just the girder suspension, but little information is available and we hear we can’t really hope for a production version as this is pretty much a demonstration of power right here and not quite THE way to go big on the highly competitive market of custom motorcycles.
Recently we’ve been publishing reviews about Buell’s 2008 Lightning models and now I’ve come across one special Lightning XB12Ss which has become a radical street fighter.
It’s called the special ThunderBuell and it was built by the Germans from Thunderbike. The base motorcycle is an XB12Ss, but if you’re expecting at a price situated around $15,000 you should reconsider and double the amount because in a happy case this is the least you’ll pay for (...)
Phillipe worked nearly 5 months for magnify the number 470 of the Millenium series.
