Buell will add two new bikes to the Lightning range for , and will also bring back the Lightning It also has a similar wheezy old pushrod engine with the obligatory box of spanners masquerading as a gearbox. Male runner, 35, dies during Two Oceans Marathon. And to the rider. Injection somewhat jerky with this particular motorcycle. What a blinding bike.

BUELL XB12S LIGHTNING () Motorcycle Review | MCN
Easy to love if hard to justify. Just take it for a test drive. The big rim-mounted front brake rotor is powerful enough to lift the rear wheel. The old tubers are known for exploding engines on motorways.
Much improved in the bhell year as the gearbox and clutch were brought up to Jap standards. Jousting with buses, taxis and delivery vans has rarely been as rewarding.
Buell XB12S Lightning
Now after 5 years and mls I still love it like on the first day. You don’t need to be a Rossi to scrape your knee with the XB. It is a real shame as the 05 buell was the best bike i ever had but the 08 model is the worst. Everything else is beautifully thought out, the engineering solutions are spot on.
As Clarkson always says you have to own at least one Alfa in your life. It stops almost as fast.
Buell XB12S Lightning: Flawed genius
I was simply amazed at how you could become xb2s with the buell so quickly. Free breathing, 2-into-1 Buell Interactive exhaust system. The transmission is very direct, the throttle response is crisp enough although not exactly razor sharp and the whole thing generally gels together budll a very satisfying way. When I get up on my day off after a 14 hour day, tired and exhausted I look out of the kitchen window and see her sleeping and Xb2s just know I gotta get out asap.
Above sb12s this big, brutal torque-mountain of an engine pulls smoothly and the pulsating world in the mirrors comes sharply into focus. Ok they are down on top end speed, but they are just so much fun to ride, what does that matter?
Than there is the exclusivity turn up at your local biker caff and you will see how many other Buell’s there are most times you will be the only one and you will piss these mid life crisis weekend granpa-rossis on their sunshine bikes off in stealing them the show.
And to the rider. Buell may of sadly shut down, but that’s good news for bargain hunters. Erik Buell leaves Harley, looks happy again! This bike would make a Buelligan out of an IAM examiner. A good kick works better. Electric motorcycle manufacturer Lightning are hoping to wrestle the title of world’s fastest Ad closing in second s Then 20km later it has you giggling inside your helmet and marvelling at just how much fun urban riding can be.
It is, of course, Harley-Davidson derived, pushrod technology pushed to bbuell maximum.
BUELL XB12S LIGHTNING (2003-2009) Review
buelll Ground clearance is not a problem — I think you will touch your elbow down before anything solid decks out on the bike. Naked bikes used to be fairly mundane commuters.
Never had a bike before giving me so much confidence to throw it into corners and get my knee down than the XB. Just as the electric bike market is heating up with more manufacturers and increasing sales, US firm A flawed character, perhaps, but no less loveable for that.
If I could only enter one sentence here, it would be:
