Buell Company continues to challenge the status quo in 2007. Six Buell XB innovative in design and bold in offer a riding experience for riders. Each is engineered passion, ingenuity and one goal in to wring the last ounce of fun every mile of road.

For Buell XB motorcycles are offered in distinct model families. Buell Lightning* models …, Streetfighter attitude and cut-and-thrust performance.

The Buell XB12R defines the Sportfighter with a razor sharp chassis design propelled by American V-Twin torque.

The features intuitive sportive with low bars and high for almost limitless cornering This motorcycle features an short 1320mm wheelbase the same as a typical 250GP — and a steep 21 degree head angle. The result is an yet stable package that is rewarding to ride.

The Buell XB12X is an Adventure Sport with Buell’s trademark chassis married to long-travel designed to offer control and on any road surface.

Last Buell charted new territory the introduction of the Ulysses XB12X and the Long XB12Ss, and for 2007 we to keep moving forward by enhancing the entire line of motorcycles, said Erik chairman and chief technical at Buell Motorcycle Company.

New on XB Models for 2007

Pirelli All 2007 Buell XB models roll on high-performance Pirelli The Buell Ulysses XB12X and CityX XB9SX are fitted Pirelli Scorpion Sync which combine high with an aggressive look, all other XB models are on Pirelli T tyres which offer performance for the road. Specific on Pirelli tyres can be found at

New Colours: A new colour, Cherry Translucent Red, will be for the Lightning XB12S and Lightning models. An exclusive feature to the translucent airbox cover and are made of a special see-through that gives the bike colour but also allows mechanical elements to be seen the material. Also new for the Lightning is the combination of Midnight Black Black wheels.

The Firebolt Buell’s premium sportfighter powered by the 1203cc Thunderstorm engine that revs to rpm, will be offered in two new colour combinations: Midnight with new Cherry Bomb Red and windscreen, and for the first time in Sunfire Yellow with wheels. In 2007 the revised of the inner airbox cover airflow potential to the engine adversely affecting intake levels.

The Buell Philosophy

intended to meet a specific challenge, each Buell is shaped by a single, guiding To deliver superior performance for riders on real roads, a premium placed on responsive delivery and precise handling.

most riders don’t all of their riding time on the track, we don’t design our motorcycles exclusively for the track, Buell. Rather, we design our to satisfy the performance needs of street riders. Some be on the circuits at the weekends or on track but others will just be for fun on public roads or might be commuting to work.

Either way, we give the ability to extract the most fun every ride.

Every motorcycle is engineered with the principles of the Buell Trilogy of

Chassis Rigidity: Buell’s Intuitive Response Chassis the front fork, rear arm and even the engine (as a stressed of the chassis) are designed to contribute to motorcycle stiffness. Limiting throughout the chassis results in an steering precision and enhances and control for the rider.

Mass The motorcycle’s centre of mass is as low as possible and centralised within the For example, the muffler is located the engine and between the wheels, than the high-and-aft position of most sportbikes. Fuel is within the hollow spars of the frame, rather than on the motorcycle in a traditional fuel For the same reason, the swingarm as the engine oil reservoir.

The result is a that feels almost responsive to rider input. Low Weight: Minimising the weight of component not supported by the motorcycle’s helps the tyres stay in over changing road and reduces the rotational inertia of the cutting the gyroscopic effect and to handling response.

A key design is the Buell Zero Torsional (ZTL) front braking which mounts a single rotor near the wheel gripped by a six-piston caliper. The rotor provides exceptional power without the weight of rotors and calipers. Because forces are transmitted directly the rim to the rotor, torsional load on the rest of the wheel is virtually

This permits the use of a very front wheel that helps reduce steering

Belt Final Drive: Instant Throttle Response features an idler pulley keeps the final drive tension constant, providing a connection between the throttle and the wheel. A Goodyear Hibrex drive belt with Plus technology provides strong link and is much than a standard drive system. This makes significant contribution to minimising weight.

The drive belt requires no scheduled service or

Power You Can Use

Buell Thunderstorm Powertrain: Buell understands in most street-riding situations, torque and a wide powerband are functional than peak With that idea in Buell Thunderstorm V-Twin are designed to deliver loads of torque. Power — for through traffic or accelerating from a corner — is on tap.

This 45-degree, powertrain is also compact and in profile, another contributor to centralisation. Buell DDFI II injection delivers crisp response in any riding situation. The Uniplanar engine mounting reduces vibration to the rider and rigidity by incorporating the engine as a member of the chassis.

The Buell series of Streetfighter motorcycles is more accessible in 2007 the arrival of the XB12Scg — a that’s perfectly suited for the with the shorter inseam but who is not to compromise when it comes to and attitude.

Heaps of V-Twin an intuitive, commanding riding and unique Streetfighter styling each of the four models in the Lightning line: the 984cc CityX XB9SX and the 1203cc XB12S, Lightning Long and now the Lightning XB12Scg.

Each Lightning model is from the original American the 1996 Buell S1 Lightning, and the core Buell Trilogy of engineering principles in a bold, spirit. Aboard a Buell the rider is in position to command the behind wide handlebars and V-Twin torque flows a smooth, responsive belt to a fat rear tyre rolling a stubby rear fender.

agile, aggressive and raucous, Lightning motorcycles are loaded Streetfighter attitude and offer a riding experience that is fun.

What Else is New for the range in 2007

Pirelli are now standard equipment on all 2007 models. Buell engineers determined that advances in the Pirelli Diablo T make it a tyre for all round real-world on the Lightning XB12S, Lightning and Lightning Long XB12Ss. The CityX XB9SX wears the tread pattern of the Pirelli Sync.

The Buell Thunderstorm

In the corner-to-corner, light-to-light world of the Buell believes that matters more than horsepower and that is why each model is powered by the Buell engine, a 45-degree air/oil/fan-cooled tuned to deliver the broad and tyre-twisting torque that’s for real-world street performance.

the middleweight Thunderstorm 984 and muscular 1203 feature DDFI II fuel injection for precise control. The Thunderstorm 1203 also features the Buell Exhaust, which utilises a in the dual-chamber muffler that is by the ECM and adjusts exhaust flow to riding conditions to smooth delivery and optimise engine whilst meeting noise and regulations.

Technology That’s More Different

Like all Buell each Lightning is designed the Buell Trilogy of Technology frame rigidity, mass and minimal unsprung weight to achieve uncompromised handling Fuel is carried in the compact frame, engine oil is carried in the and the muffler is located below the all in an effort to centralise mass and the centre of gravity, so the Lightning is to flick into corners and willing to take an aggressive

The Buell Uniplanar engine system reduces vibration to the and also increases frame by utilising the engine as a stressed of the chassis. The Goodyear Hibrex drive belt with Plus technology is lighter a typical final drive and contributes to smooth, lash-free response. And unlike a chain, the belt requires no scheduled or replacement.

Doing its part to unsprung weight, the Buell Torsional Load (ZTL) brake features a single 375 mm mounted near the wheel gripped by a six-piston caliper. The rotor provides exceptional power without the weight of rotors and calipers.

Because forces are transmitted directly the rim to the rotor, torsional load at the wheel is virtually eliminated, permits the use of a very lightweight aluminium front wheel. suspension components include a Showa upside-down fork for pre-load, compression and rebound and a fully adjustable Showa rear shock.

Exclusive Bodywork

Translucent bodywork (available on models) makes Buell the ultimate … bike. An feature to Buell, the translucent cover and flyscreen are made of a plastic that gives the colour but also allows mechanical elements to be visible the material. This see-through element is offered on certain models in Valencia Orange, Blue, Kick Ash, and new for Cherry Bomb Red.

of these models also cast aluminium wheels in an exclusive, high-gloss translucent that produces a beautiful or Cherry Bomb Red colour natural variations and depth.
