Buell 1125R is FFFast - November 1, 2007, 03:33 PM

sorry I have taken so long to post this up, but here are some pics for the none believers.
track day at VIR was awsome I was moved from beginner to intermediate on my second session.
this bike is fast and I could over 160 easily as I went by an R6 on the straight without a problem but my biggest surprise was how even better the corner grabs. Its like being on rails. the Sliper clutch as some people have refered to it is easy noticible when you make a mistake and notice how the rear tire does not lock on you. the clutch is smooth so that takes care for the people that did not like the clutch on the XBs.

The scoops on the side as some people have referd to it, which i was not too happy about changed my mind when I saw it in person. they don't stick out, they are anout 1.5" thick thats all and that is where the radiotors are. the braking system is even better with its 8 piston caliper and ZLT rotor gives quick stoping and extremely smooth. I was braking at 600 feet as i entered turn 1 with my xb, with the 1125r i was able to lower it to 300 feet and got out of the corner way faster. I have to admit that my xb has been a great bike but compared to the 1125R is simply no contest. This bike is a beast. I am glad Buell desigend the mufler underneath as they have with all the XBs. Its nice to see how all the rest of bike companies have tried to copy this from Buell.


Buell was awsome, got free lunch, drinks, use of leathers, free bike to test the whole day,lol

I am glad Buell is doing the same thing Ducati does for their existing bike owners.

For those who have a hard time reading Buells' posts I have done my best to clean it up a bit.

Buell thanks for posting this up. Ascetics aside, the 1125R has me very excited.

For all the haters, name one company who hit a home run in their first 10 years. Let alone in this market, where technology has bikes leap frogging each other every two years.

The track day at VIR was awesome. I was moved from beginner to intermediate on my second session.

This bike is fast! I could reach over 160 indicated easily. I went by an R6 on the front straight without a problem.

My biggest surprise was how much corner grip the bike offered. It was like being on rails.

The 'Slipper Clutch' as some have referred to it, is easily noticeable when you make a mistake, and the rear doesn't lock. The clutch action is smooth, so much so that it compensates for the XBs and address all the issues that were raised about the clutch on the XBs.

The air scoops on the side, which I was not too happy about, were not as bad in person. They don't stick out as much as the images would lead you to believe, they are only about 1.5" thick; that's all. These scoops house the radiators.

The braking system is even better that the XB's. With its 8 piston caliper and ZLT rotor, the 1125R gives immediate stopping power and extremely smooth porgression. I was braking at 600 feet as I entered turn 1 with my XB, with the 1125R, I was able to brake at 300 feet, and got out of the corner much faster.

I have to admit that my XB has been a great bike, but compared to the 1125R, there is simply no contest. This bike is a beast!

I am glad Buell designed the muffler underneath the engine, as they had with all the XBs. Its nice to see how all the rest of bike companies have moved towards this.

Buell was awesome, they ran a great track day and demo, I got a free lunch, drinks, use of leathers, and a free 1125R to test the whole day! LOL!

I am glad to see that Buell is providing the same kind of support and ownership benefits that Ducati does for their existing bike owners.

Body positioning leaves something to be desired.

Interesting. I'd love to compare it to the buells I have test ridden. That's probably the first Buell I have actually been interested in. AHHHHH. Did I just type that? (Of course I also like the Hypermotard as well.)

Get the hypermotard... well only if you want a hooligan, wheelie, sliding, tire spinning, curve eating type of bike

That way when we get back from riding on the dirt we can cause trouble on the pavement.
