Buell M2 Cyclone

Think Davidson and you think lumbering plated pose-mobile, right? you believe that Harleys the potential to be rip snorting sports that could give any or Honda a run for its money? Neither did I I sampled the Buell Cyclone, but a quick history lesson. For the two decades, Eric Buell has an engineer working for Harley and a part time bike dedicated to making racing for tuned Harley engines.

He was at it too, and bit by bit he turned into a manufacturer of Harley based A couple of years back he the stakes and went into with Harley Davidson to a brand new marque, Buell Motorcycles. These bikes are now on in the UK for the first time, and the bike I been riding is the first one let on the roads of Scotland.

Believe me, let loose is the right

What we have here is venerable old 1,200 cc Sportster but heavily breathed on to give 86 and a monster dose of torque. is tied into an extremely geodesic designed tubular to which are attached the minimum of to make a bare bones Not a cheap motorcycle mind you at but quality costs, and this has lots of trick kit in its suspension, and cycle parts.

Point it down a bendy and you soon see where the money has

This is one seriously rapid but in a way that has almost been To riders raised on a diet of revving Japanese 4 cylinder the feel of the Buell will as a complete surprise. It climbs on the cam at 2,500 rpm, and then pulls like steam

You can rev it hard, or short shift, it no appreciable difference, as there is a broad power band. It has the of an old British bike, the sort dad would remember, only it the ground in a way that no 50’s racer ever did. It feel like a Norton, but it like a Fireblade.

It also makes a truly noise (and lots of it) is decades away from the pitched whine of todays it has a deep roaring note will attract the attention of Eddie Cochrane fan within a mile radius!

The Buell has the to go with this tidal of grunt too. It is painfully work on the motorway, but show it a road or a series of roundabouts and it though them with This is clearly a chassis by a racer, it is stiff and unyielding, is of course exactly what you for maximum handling finesse.

In the real world though have lumps and bumps, and can upset the road-holding. I did not have to try any suspension adjustments, but a bit more would be to my taste. No worries the brakes though, they are

The front may only have a disc, but it is huge and is gripped by a six pot of colossal power. Go easy on less than clean dry would be my advice.

By now you must be that this is the greatest ever invented, but life is that simple. At town where the engine is off the cam, it through the whole bike so as to make you eyeballs wobble. vision and fast bikes are a bad The ergonomics are less than your knee bangs on the air the clutch is achingly heavy in and the all important seat/backside interface is painful after more an hour in the saddle.

It is Union made in the good old U S of A, labour rates are high, so it is not as cheap as its rivals.

So if you want a quiet, practical bike is great value for money, elsewhere. On the other hand if you thrilling modern performance, but a touch of that old Harley magic, this Buell is a have. The only Scottish is Alvins Motorcycles, at the foot of Walk in Edinburgh.

Remember to tell them you it here first.
