Buell Releases New 1125CR


So Buell has now got a new iteration of the kick-ass 1125R. With actual clubman bars and a small bikini-faring to go with the (some might say massive) cooling pods, the new Buell 1125CR looks to be a bike that can easily hang with other street-fighter-esque machines such as the Aprilia Tuono or the Triumph Speed Triple. There has been no downgrades on the spec sheet that I could find, so it should be as light and powerful as the R model. I can’t wait to see one of these in person.

So I am on the Sportster Cafe Racer mailing list, and the overall consensus seems to be that the bike is fugly. Is this true?!?!? I think it is a good looking bike, and certainly places function at the forefront of its design ethic. On the other hand, if enough people (read “potential buyers”) think it is ugly personified, then perhaps I can pick one up at the end of the season for a steal… 😉

    Was this Buell promo shot taken at the exit of Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris? I think I see the paparazzi chasing Dodi Fayed’s black Benz.

    Thanks, Lorenzo! I appreciate the kind comment. And very astute of you to notice that it is a Buell promo shot.
