2006 Lightning® XB12S Overview

The new Lightning XB12Scg offers uncompromised streetfighter performance with a lower seat height. Altered front and rear suspension and a reshaped seat lower the center of gravity and reduce seat height to 28.6 inches - 1.75 inches lower than the standard XB12S. Thrust comes courtesy of a Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin with Buell InterActive Exhaust and a new, smoother-shifting transmission. Available in Midnight Black or with a new Valencia Orange Translucid airbox cover and flyscreen with Midnight black front fender and chin spoiler, both with high-gloss Translucent Amber wheels.
