The Buell 1125CR offers technology and responsive handling a proven platform based on the Trilogy of Tech principles. The Helicon 1125 powertrain the foundation for this riding This 1125cc DOHC engine features a compact, design and is rated at 146 crankshaft and 82 ft. lbs. of peak torque.

DDFI3 closed-loop EFI produces operation with a quick, response.

New for 2009 on the 1125CR are targeted fuel injectors, O2 sensors, and updated engine and fuel maps. The combination of features offers improved below 6000rpm, even throttle response, improved management, and significantly improved economy.

sticks to the 1125R superbike and chassis, but goes against motorcycles, preferably ones have already made a in this segment. Japan is a great supplier from point of view and among the popular nakeds built we’ll have to mention the Yamaha FZ1N and the Kawasaki There have been about Suzuki planning to the GSR750 next year and bike might very compete with the new Buell, the 750cc four-cylinder engine not to mention the chassis.

Also, the Harley-Davidson XR1200 is a choice to be although we don’t dare that Buell built the like a direct competitor for it.

From the old continent, the new Ducati 1100 and 1100 S are definitely rather stylish alternatives to the American streetfighter, while the Tuono 1000 R and Tuono R Factory are probably the most models to the 2009 Buell

Still, the latest entry in category is one that brings a new feel in matters of streetfighter and the Buell kind of rider is to grab the opportunity almost so the competition is pretty much out of in this case.


behind the black-anodized, tapered clubman-style handlebar and streamlined and flyscreen, the rider has a wide-open forward that intensifies the of speed.

All that performance is in a motorcycle that is visually A narrow headlight pod incorporates a flyscreen, while a removable covers the passenger seat The blacked-out frame and chassis contrast with red highlights on the brake caliper, wheel rear shock spring and adjusters atop the fork

The Buell 1125CR will be with Racing Red or Midnight bodywork.


The $11,695 is sure to make the brand new 1125CR even more but not the most tempting in its class as makers always turn the in their favor.


products are all about bringing a new look and feel on a market with models that virtually all the same. If you’ve one, you’ve seen all. This is not the case of the so you better check it out.

From where we stand, the looks like great and we can’t wait to take it for a ride.
