Buell 1125R

Buell’s tool stands out from the

During its 25th anniversary Buell released the new 1125R. Erik Buell’s dream day one has been to build a real sportsbike. Has he hit the mark?


Buells always look – this one too. Overall, its works for me. The broad but shallow nose and screen styling a while – but I’m getting the program. The bits I’m digesting are those side which feed air to the side-mounted

The new 72-degree, 146hp ‘ ‘ engine sits in a new between two deep aluminium spars that hold the in the Buell manner. This though, the swingarm doesn’t to double as an oil tank. Although a dry-sump engine, the tank is within the engine cases.

novel feature is the unique-to-Buell, slipper clutch. And there’s a trick cush drive. trick because it’s two compensators in one and it’s fitted to the sprocket, not in the rear hub.

The familiar rim-mounted, single brake rotor is clamped by a new caliper.

The new 47mm inverted are designed for reduced stiction. other details are new to the 1125R, its bare bones are readily


The 1125cc engine’s an easy starter makes all the right noises and lovely performance in an unfussed Below 5000rpm I reckon a whisker down on the mountainous of the old H-D Sportster-based engine, but then a engine’s torque is very to beat in the midrange.

Once, you move towards the top-end, into territory that’s owned by four-valve engines. new territory, too, on a Buell – 50hp up on its predecessors. Induction a little reminiscent of the haunting cry of a big SV comes on sweet and strong as the needle swings upwards.

Vibration-wise it’s well with three balancer Clever engineering, though, feeds enough pleasure to the rider to make it feel an authentic V-twin experience. is lovely when you’re on the right across its broad rev (redline is 10,500rpm).

When just feeding it a whiff of in the 2500-3500rpm range – classic traffic stuff – it surges and as do many injected singles or

It’s up to you whether you call behaviour ‘character’ or see it as an irritant further finessing by the factory. certainly milder here with the fuel-injected two-valve The gearbox is quite a sweet

When you’re really into it, clutchless upshifts are as as a maiden’s caress. A couple of my test mount blocked from third to second. it was punishing me for being a bit tentative on occasions.

The new slipper clutch makes for entry to tight corners. Its isn’t as strong as some clutches I’ve used – I had the wheel start to step out a of times on downshifts into – but the mechanism intervened to put a cap on the degree of A consequence of this softer action is that it transmits a amount of engine braking.

a bonus everywhere except on a race bike.


new Buell’s ergos were great for my frame. Erik intention to set it up to be rider friendly to have worked. It doesn’t on a tiresome ‘racer crouch’. it drops you into a nice of a posture – loads on your aren’t excessive in traffic, but you can duck out of the breeze at warp The screen and broad fairing well at deflecting most of the load and buffeting.

Seat comfort was a nice too.


The suspension was adjusted to suit my before the ride by Buell I’ve come to understand to get the best out of a Buell you need to set the to suit your weight and style. The bike’s handbook all the information you need. Buells love a winding road.

like a train on rails in sweepers and they’re ultra and quick steering in the very bits too. The 1125R a little more compliant previous Buells at very low – perhaps that’s down to the new design.

Like earlier the 1125R isn’t a happy It’s inclined to stand up brakes, but less so than When you’re driving out of a bend high in third and then you strike ripples or you a rise high in fourth and the front wheel, all that back is a non-alarming quiver the front end.

It never threatens to develop a proper wobble. Despite its wheelbase and sharp steering this Buell is inherently stable. And that’s without a damper.

In slow, feet-up the 1125R demonstrated its improved lock, gained by moving the further forward from the spars.

The brakes really me. The eight pistons gave of progressive power and feel, the vicious initial bite some like – but I don’t.

The is a real goer that its stuff in a very rider-friendly Power delivery is strong, and so linear. You never fear going to bite you when heeled over and driving out of a second or third-gear bend.

a bit down on top speed compared the 170-plus-hp, four-cylinder litre-class bikes, but that doesn’t for much on the road or around a for that matter.

The finish and fit on my bike was excellent. I however, about the durability of the vinyl ‘tank’ badges. The is the sportsbike that fulfils Buell’s dream – and it’s a priced one.

If you’re behind in very fast it won’t be due to any shortcoming on the part of Buell.
