2008 Buell 1125R

is a narrow and gnarled piece of asphalt California likes to a road. Elevating from its Ocean starting point it doubles back as it climbs the kicking gravel on itself as it The road is a challenge to a rider on a enduro machine, let alone a on a first-ride press intro a bike he’s been not to crash.

But this is where new 1125R shines.

Tight, switchback after tight, switchback the 1125R seemingly nothing away to the handling of its shorter wheelbase XB counterparts. The swingarm is 3.5 inches longer that of its XB brethren but the bike has a 2.5-inch longer wheelbase to the stacked transmission that the swingarm pivot one inch to the crankshaft. Necessitating the longer is the increase in horsepower to a claimed 146 to keep the front end aloft with the additional inches.

Between corners I recall the morning tech briefing and was said about mass-centralization and the weight advantage the 1125R has the XB12R. Putting that on hold I roll off the throttle, the Buell with its six-piston caliper and navigate through a 160-degree, dirty, uphill The Buell finesses the corner the aplomb of Santa landing 200-pound reindeer on a rooftop waking the children.

All that about trilogy of technology and handling and power delivery were feeding us along the breakfast buffet seems than just imaginative when riding a road Nacimiento-Ferguson.

Three-quarters of the way up and my internal mechanism is telling me I’m riding far too on a bike I need to return. A that  if I’m this comfortable the 1125R as fast as I am with no than two hours seat  something must be right this new model.

The literal and figurative downside to road is a 20-mile drone Fort Hunter-Liggett at 35 mph  a speed the military base is serious And it’s now, with to do but sit and sweat in the summer heat exiting the base, that of the Buell’s foibles are exposed.

it_s liquid-cooled, the Helicon emits enough heat to a a booted foot uncomfortable, a right one. After outside the base, swigging warm bottled water it apparent after touching the and brake levers that are too hot to touch. Granted it was August, but kind of heat is excessive on a with no lower fairing heat dispersal.

Is that big black can to blame?

the engine, residing in the same of all Buell models for decades is the system. Eric Buell be smiling as the trend for under-engine grows among Japanese instigated from current competition. Unlike fully bikes from Japan, the exhaust is exposed and is therefore to styling protocol and ridicule.

The grind across the embattled training ground also forth a searching problem the fuel injection system trying to maintain a steady at the restricted pace. Buell the company is aware of the problem and have it smoothed out before bikes to dealers.

In full-throttle on the freshly resurfaced face of Raceway Laguna Seca are no readily apparent flaws than a tach needle doubles as a useless shift because it imperceptibly turns orange to red, and the need of a damper to keep chassis to a minimum.

It is also on the track where the new and slipper clutch make advantages known. Where the XBs are impossible to speed shift, the new transmission is as smooth and willing as to come out of Japan. The new six-speed, transmission’s stacked configuration engine length and maximizes placement, utilizes a belt drive (on the left side) and a Hydraulic Vacuum Assist slipper clutch.

Besides as well if not better than the customary ball and ramp clutch, the HVA system reduces pull when the bike is from 16 lbs. to 13.5

It actually engages the clutch a when you roll off the throttle and the close, says platform director Tony Stefanelli.

Where the XB models lack horsepower to make things in a closed course environment, the 146 hp is enough to keep any track day This newfound horsepower, with Buell’s inherently handling provides a classroom a person can focus on improving skills without invoking the anticipation of inadvertently breaking the tire lose like riding one of the 1,000cc hypersorts of the Big Four.

The 1125R’s aerodynamics, largely from the XBRR create a massive quiet behind the bubble, and the rev-limiter throw the operator over the when it kicks in. Some is felt when riding the new but nothing I would consider or irregular from a twin two 500cc jugs at 10,000

Famous for coloring outside the Buell cannot be scolded for its critics. Condemned for the company’s adhered to air- oil- 45-degree, push rod engine the 2008 1125R is none of While the bike maintains the for which Buells are famous, it the level of engineering and performance above the high-water mark set by Buell models.
