2007 Buell Super TT Ride

More powerful the City X, more nimble the Ulysses, the multi-purpose 2007 Super TT steps up to fill the between the two.

Let me in, get me out. do more than twist and Lost my soul without a found it again in my secret — Dave Mustaine,

Like a heat-stroked renegade with a bad attitude, Buell’s Super TT kicks open the of the saloon, smacks the barmaid on the downs a double-shot of liver-…, a smoky burnout around the before rolling into the burning out sideways, flat style, and heading due west the sunset waving a middle in the air.

And that’s why the XB12STT is so cool, because it is what it is and no apologies for it. The Super TT is an in-your-face that combines the best of two of most current design into an ultra-fun and easy-to-ride of transportation that is sure to public opinion on the topic of its and functionality.

This latest of the Lightning series is a multi-purpose that occupies one specific in the Buell line-up located between the CityX and the Ulysses. CityX is based on the Lightning XB9 leaves the 984cc X a bit underpowered to be seriously as a full-bore hooligan

The tall adventure-touring Ulysses the 1203cc Thunderstorm motor and suspension travel that a smooth long-distance ride but a bit ungainly when the road tight and twisty. The Super TT a 23.1-degree rake, a bit sharper the 23.5 degrees in the Uly and XB12SS, but more relaxed than the degrees of the standard Lightning. A 4.7-inches of trail combines to things relatively stable for a quick-turning bike.

A tall fork with nearly a foot of travel smoothes roads.

The Super TT’s suspension consists of a 43mm inverted fork that is adjustable to allow a rider to the set-up for any situation.

The journey to the appeal of the Super TT began an early afternoon jaunt Southern California’s I-5 to Highway 74 revealed its rider-friendly ergonomics. The riding position is afforded by the of the rear-set pegs, motocross-style and its long, slim seat. would be the first, and least test of the 5.63-inches of travel up by both the fully adjustable Showa inverted fork and adjustable Showa shock.

a 31.4-inch seat height as Buell and H-D do, with a rider and an unobstructed view of the road it makes for a good base to the chaos developing before The concrete whoops pounding beneath are kept in check by sprung suspenders, the first of a list of compliments the STT deserves. along SoCal’s infamous highway on the STT further proved it is equally at home in the canyons.

As it is with all Buell motorcycles, the STT twisties with minimal on the part of the rider, thanks to its nature. It has a very neutral while navigating the seemingly onslaught of curves found Ortega. Thanks to the well-balanced and centralized mass, perpetrated by Trilogy of Technology philosophy, the STT rider input without and provides a level of riding usually reserved for pure

At the heart of this canyon-consuming is the air-cooled 45-degree Thunderstorm It has the torque necessary to accelerate in almost any of its five gears, for on-demand passes and impromptu wheelies when conditions even though the motor making power rather immediately after redline. keep the Buell on the boil by around 6800 rpm and there’s a 103 hp on tap.

This is more enough motor for the average to get their kicks.

The Super 1203cc 45-degree Thunderstorm carries a powerband wide to feel the acceleration through all gears.

And in the event someone the power of the Twin, they be thanking Buell for another of its components. If you do find yourself it into a turn, the massive ZTL front brake rotor and caliper offers up amazing power along with feel at the lever. So, late won’t always end in disaster, and the single rotor looks cool, too.

But the Super TT has even more to the discerning rider than being a comfortable commuter and competent-canyon carving motorcycle.

the road gets really, tight, really, really and full of really, really imperfections including, but not limited to, chuck-holes, braking bumps and elevation changes, that’s about the time the Super TT is in its And this is the secret place Buell intended to dominate the Super TT.

This particular the most exciting and truly portion of our SoCal excursion, on a rarely used single-lane path that our trail Big Cat revealed to us out of the kindness of his heart. the ride my adrenalin was pumping, I was and laughing, and Megadeth’s Secret was running rampant in my head the time. Thank goodness the of running across The Man was all but non-existent for what seemed like an hour, the SuperTTs were mercilessly, wheelied incessantly and pounded into the ground in the interest of discovering the answer to all-important question: Why build bike?

The Super TT’s stable is due in part to its incorporation of the 4.4 gallon tank into the frame and the oil into the swingarm.

After research, the answer to that is surprisingly simple: Why not? so much damn fun to ride a and so much fun to ride a supermoto it now makes perfect sense to the two. The STT is more fun to ride and fast than a number of focused bikes on the market plus the variety of roads it can make it a truly multi-purpose

A pure sportbike, for example, be hard pressed to hang that type of terrain at speeds, and, frankly, the fairing would have smashed to oblivion five into the ride. As it was, the exhaust did take a pounding. guys.) There’s just exciting about the bike is hard to put a finger on. I think it may from the dirtbike-like riding

The torquey V-Twin that such an admirable job on a standard of canyon road is damn perfect for a street-bound supermoto as this. With 84 lb-ft of on tap at such low rpm, the 180/55ZR-17 Scorpion Synch rear grabs plenty of traction, when combined with the 54-inch wheelbase, 2-inches than a standard Lightning makes the front end ultra

When cresting the sharp and road undulations that the majority of our covert canyon the 120/70 ZR-17 front was off the ground more often not. The point is that the end was light and wheelies were simple on this rollercoaster of a

When the ride was over it was that this is where the TT belongs. Sure, it does a job as a daily driver, and the 4.4 gallon capacity and nearly 200-mile makes touring an option as But if you want to experience the best of the you need to roll hard and get it on at your secret place.

it’s a favorite hidden or fire road, the STT is capable of it in fine fashion. Once you the STT in its element, then you too will why Buell went through the to build a bike to address the hooligan in all of us. An interesting Super TT is the uniquely graffiti-inspired color available directly from

The STT is available in either Barricade or Arctic White versions but painted tank cover, and side number plates are available.

The massive twin-spar cell wrapped around a belt-driven air-cooled V-Twin and oil is at the heart of all but one model (the entry-level Blast). The gauges, mirrors and bodywork are all basic hardware, as are the 6-spoke wheels and bodywork. It’s the minute that make the Super TT

Buell produces a number of on its proven base platform, like a number of its competitors do, so get it.

It is a multi-role urban-assault offered to us by the man as a solution to satiating our child.
