In the Beginning there was "the Buell TubeFrame".
Tons of Personality, as was it's Torque. Wheelie prone, loud and more fun than shoulda' been legal .Much rubber was spread on the tarmac.
And then was born the "XB",
Small. Lithe. Advanced version V-Twin. Voted the "Best Handling Sportbike in the World." Beat out an Aprilia 250 "GP" Bike. The "XB" was also to achieve one of the highest motorcycle dependability ratings in the World.
Next released upon the "Buell World" was the Rotax powered 1125R.
Designed under the confines of the Mothership, this vehicle did just about everything well, except survive. Slight speedbump.
NO PROBLEM !
Now Mr "E"....(thats with a "K" mind you) has the ability to facilitate his ideas freely for the first time since basically the Barton days. And what does he give us? Well, you could imagine, but fortunately we didn't have to!
How about a " P6 " at its 3rd Racetrack.
How many machines did that Sixth place BEAT that had 100's of thousands of $$$ thrown at them? At only it's fifth race ever?
I don't know what anyone else is thinking, but if I was wanting to stock my Superbike Raceteam with a bike that could run at the
front for only 40,000 bones, then I need only remember those 3 Initials. And Oh Yeah.....thats spellt with a "K".
