1125CR - July 23, 2008, 05:59 PM

I didn't see a post on this, so I'm hoping that it isn't a repost.

Anyway, saw that Buell introduced the 1125CR. I'm a big fan of naked bikes (like my old Speed Four). This one looks okay, but for once, I'd have to lop off the rearview mirrors and add bar-ends. They look like bug antennae.

Will have to test ride one. Sounds like they ironed out the bugs from the 1125R. We'll see. Still pricey, though...

Yea - I asked for a naked version, but they really missed the mark for my taste with this one.

Yeah, I'd like it more if it didn't look like they ripped off the light/cafe fairing from the B-King...

If something could be done about the intake scoops and the exhaust, I would be a bit more interested... but I believe based on the radiator design, the scoops are ness.

From the front it looks good... then you move to a profile angle and I want to

There must be better ways to work out the scoops for the radiators, just look at the RC51

The 1125 race bike has full fairings and looks miles and miles better than the giant scoops on this and the 1125r.

Ive seen some aftermarket headlights that would really fix up the front, and exhaust is almost always a necisity on stock bikes.

All in all not bad.

Its not too bad. For a twin the new 1125 is not a bad price when comparing to Ducati

Buell should drop there pants on this bike. I'd try one out if they were priced sub $8000.

That's one of my bigger issues. I know that on paper, Buells try to compare with Aprilias (and to a lesser extent, Ducati), but if the prices are close (and they are), I'd rather have an Aprilia Tuono than a 1125CR. Now, if you drop the price of a 1125CR a few grand, then I'm much more interested...

wish I had a pic of the new scoops I saw on the buells racing in the canadian pro racing.
looks like there are 2 modifications and and maybe more ,one I really love looks like an F14 jet and the 1125R looks HOT.

no offence to anyone but Buells are not trying to hit Jappy market, they are more focused on the european market where they value design and style.
Buell is in the market with Aprilla, Ducati, BMW. this is not for the 7-11 salesperson.

dude i think you are missing it. go to buell.com and see the new 1125R in white and tell me that the scoops mess it up, if anything the scoops gives it another comple look to the asian bikes

Yeah, my entire post (that you quoted) was about them trying to compete with the Euros, particularly Aprilia, but Buell has to beat their prices if they want to gain inroads in that market.

Like I said, if an Aprilia Tuono and a 1125CR are priced the same (and they are), I'm going with the Tuono every time. The Tuono is known quantity--it has a longer history and an amazing cult following (because it's such a fantastic bike). If the 1125CR were a few thousand less, then I'd consider it instead.

Same goes for BMW. If the bikes are priced the same, I'm going with the Germans.

Buell might be making better bikes than before, but they need to undercut the competition first and then raise their price points once they have a stronger market share.

Still looks like someone stuck luggage on the front of the bike.
