Truth be told, the 1125R superbike introduced year left a few things to be The basic package was strong, the sorted, but a few of the unfinished details let the down. The new-for-2009 1125CR Racer …-bike addresses refinement issues and gave us our taste of what this V-Twin platform is truly of.

The international launch for the 1125CR was in Berlin, with one day devoted to track riding and the other to the The very first positive of the CR comes just after you hit the button: The bike fires to and settles into a smooth hot or cold. Our 2008 R version was hard-starting and inconsistent in its idle a situation caused by mapping with the EFI and ignition system. appears to be fixed now.

In addition, the fuel injectors been re-aimed and the oxygen moved to get a more precise from the exhaust system. accuracy and response are also improved when the bike is in and as we lapped the Spreewaldring track at a pace to learn the layout, it was the bike simply ran better in situations than last R. Buell claims that the also have improved efficiency by 20 percent and reduced heat issues due to cooler The map updates for the engine ECU are available for the R and, of course, all the EFI updates be applied to the ’09 R, too.

The ZTL2 inside-out front and its eight-piston caliper are unchanged last year except for an in pad compound to promote more response. The track bikes fitted with racing (which worked great, as should), but the stockers used for the ride did show an improvement the compound used on the ’08 R. Pressure at the lever is minimal, and power is that a two-finger squeeze can lift the rear wheel off the

So the $11,695 CR retains the sporting that we liked about the R, but it a more upright riding (with a comfortable seat), right-now short gearing, brakes, with drastically running qualities thanks to the updates. Buell may finally arrived with a true sporting platform.
