A standard 1198 would beat that round the track and would be alot cheaper.:slight_smile:

Single front disc!!!

Exhaust that looks like it comes off a 250

Mmmmm I’m not feeling it to be honest

i know what u mean about the can lol defo take that off and put this on:

:smiley: :w00t::smiley:

thats better:D looks like its trying too hard too look like an 1198 tho;) 185 RWHP…with a single front disc!:w00t: good luck:D

The exhaust looks like a typical Buell fuk up.

Tried a Buell 1125CR on a track day. 150+ bhp vtwin Rotax motor. Dont believe the single front disc is inferior, ruddy thing had me almost over the bars at Castle Coombe. A pretty horrible thing overall. Unrefined and unfinished but very sharp steering. A shocker. :w00t:

I’ve always thought of Buells as ‘film’ bikes. I’m happy with how conventional superbikes look, and I want all my hard earned spondoolies to go on a bike I can take seriously…call me old fashioned

I thought Buell went pop last year or the year before. There was that video of Erik Buell getting all emotional and thanking all the people who’d bought Buells etc etc…

As for the bike <shrugs> I’m indifferent.
