Yesterday a nice package of literature arrived featuring the new 2008 Buell Sportbike. Looks like they have really done thier homework with this design. What I like is that Buell claims to have built the bike with the rider as #1 consideration. Things like adjustable footpeg location & adjustable levers are nice touches but the performance will ultimatly be what sells this machine. The dyno chart looks impressive with a torque curve almost completely flat and emphisizes tractable power from idle to redline unlike most sportbikes with the topend bias. Should be more fun to ride, somewhat like a Firebolt but with almost double the rpm band available. This machine looks like the machine many riders wanted an American manufacturer to build, I know I did. The only thing missing from previous Buell efforts was more power and even like that they were some of the funest bikes to ever be built IMHO. Don't know how many Superbike titles this concept will take, but I'd bet there will be more than a few converts from the foriegn sportbike brigade. For me its a no brainer, I want one NOW!
