The future beckons
Sports bike enthusiasts seeking a unique proposition will soon get to experience a taste of things to come from Buell® motorcycles. The innovative manufacturer has pushed its design principles to the limit and produced a totally new hypersport offering for 2008.
The all-new Buell® 1125R combines cutting edge design with the top quality performance and handling already associated with the American motorcycles. The sportfighter utilises the all-new Intuitive Response Chassis with a 72-degree V-Twin 1125cc liquid cooled dual overhead cam engine.
Improved performance is guaranteed with 146hp – just four less than the Buell XBRR race motorcycle – a fuel injected engine and six-speed gearbox. The new design still incorporates the Buell brands Trilogy of Technology. The frame is designed with chassis rigidity in mind to ensure the Buell® 1125R stays firmly in line when flicking through corners.
It also carries fuel in the frame, for mass centralisation, which allows better agility and handling. The unsprung weight on the 1125R comes from fully adjustable suspension combined with Zero Torsional Load front brake and premium tyres to inspire rider confidence with excellent levels of grip and traction.
The distinctive looking motorcycle has a more relaxed riding position for enhanced rider comfort and will be available at £8,495 OTR.
Buell enthusiasts will also enjoy benefits across the whole range with small engine updates for improved reliability and durability, an updated instrument panel and a heated grips plug. There will also be limited edition graphics available to celebrate the brands 25th anniversary.
We are extremely excited about the new offerings from Buell for 2008, says Buell UK Managing Director Paul Stroud. The 1125R represents a totally new direction for the brand, so we eagerly await the reaction from UK motorcyclists.
We believe that the updates and new introductions further demonstrate the continual evolution of the Buell brand UK motorcyclists will hopefully appreciate the new motorcycles as premium products.
