Buell Ulysses XB12XT

Buell had been steaming along producing quirky with Harley-Davidson at the tiller, it suddenly changed course to an adventure-type machine in the shape of the Another swift manoeuvre and the Ulysses XB12XT touring appeared to not a lot of applause outside of the Fan Club.

Not that there was a lot with the Ulysses XT despite the tag offered up by non-Buell owners. sets the XT touring version from the normal Ulysses is the but ‘normal’ suspension and the pannier/topbox that is standard fitment. accessory packs are solid and and accept a fair amount of etc.

Take the topbox off and the mounting doubles up as a convenient pillion rest. Other niceties a decent sized screen to windblast at bay, handguards and 12v socket.

What you have to be aware of the XT is that it’s not a modern in the Japanese sense – where the and its ancillaries are up to date(ish), the 1203cc Thunderstorm) engine is a basic Harley piece that and pulls from low down ease. Gear changes are but precise and top speed doesn’t far past the 115mph zone. Its area is engine heat, the rider in slow moving

As a touring machine the XT is surprisingly in a straight line and through flowing twists. Considering the performance it can make short of getting across town or When loaded with and luggage, it reduces the amount of from the front end and leads to steering.

Braking is best as adequate.

Buell finish has always questionable but most complaints been aimed at the exhaust giving way to rust. Belt drive isn’t a problem it hardly wears, that and the it doesn’t need lubricating at all perfect sense for touring

Now Buell no longer officially within the UK has left many cautious about second-hand This isn’t a problem, All official Harley-Davidson dealerships are up for servicing and supply of spares and can be a starting point for a bargain

+ points – comes with all for touring.
