2008 1125R First Ride

1125R- First Ride By Tom Monroe

Rosamond, California. 16th 2007–

As I followed the riding “coach” around the Streets of Willow Springs course, I thought to myself this guy’s pretty but we’re on the same bike so I be able to keep up, right?” As it turns out, this new is pretty easy to ride even though I had just handed the bike five earlier.

Those familiar Buells will feel at on the 1125R. In fact, if you just at it you might mistake it for a Firebolt. Trilogy of Technology is again at here, and the frame as well as of the bodywork look to be interchangeable earlier Buells.

For those not familiar with let me briefly enlighten you: front disc is attached to the with a new eight-piston caliper it from the inside; fuel is inside the main frame; now, XB series Buells their oil in the swingarm, but not so on this bike, which holds the stuff inside the crankcase “normal” sportbikes.

The motor, developmentally started out years ago for use in Mille and Tuono, has been and refined for this new bike. As a Tuono owner, it was easy for me to a direct comparison. And this motor rocks! It was smoother the Aprilia’s, with a more powerband, but it lacked some of the of the Italian bikes.

However, engine character is and the Buell’s motor does not in performance.

1125Rs were the track all day, going faster than the XB12 that were also Handling was very similar bikes, but the 1125’s additional and considerably lighter flywheel it squirt between turns giving the rider a big advantage. advantage would translate to the street, where the smooth can get you out of – or into – trouble quicker the old air-cooled Sportster-derived motor.

Vibration was also noticeable – of it’s absence. I’ve Buells parked on their running, that looked they were about to themselves apart. Sure, smooth out when you get going, but the at stoplights was a bit much.

Not the 1125R. In my only complaint with motor will easily be by the aftermarket. It seems Buell did a great job engineering the 1125R’s to work well, that lost sight of how it looks or

I could barely hear any coming out of the muffler, most of the was generated by the motor. While certainly pleases the EPA, I wait to hear one that’s uncorked.

The gearbox was another significant operating as smoothly as my Tuono’s, is a far cry from what you get on the air-cooled Clutch action was smooth, in all the controls were placed in a neutral sportbike position and operated like you would on any Japanese sportbike.

Handling was Buell- great. Get on and ride … off, right without any worries or surprises. I myself operating mostly in the but at just over 100 mph through sections of the Streets, this was unflappable.

I noticed a bit of standup while into turns, but not enough to me. It feels like one solid piece beneath you, yet it’s the stability that you.

A friend named was likely among the first ever to crash an 1125R, it down gently in a slow-motion, turn lowside. The bike is so he described the experience as “almost although he was pretty dismayed he had crashed someone else’s To the bike’s credit, it looked rideable, albeit with of scuffing on the radiator shroud, and tail section.

Buell has down their own road for carving out a small niche of but never penetrating The Big Time. The should be able to change all
