Good...I'm glad it's late so I can tell you the truth about this bike before everyone here bashes it.
I test rode one and it's a great bike. A lot of fun to ride. It handles well and has decent power (not like R1 or busa power). The power is down low in the rev range so for everyday riding it's very useable power. The riding position was good and it's comfortable enough to take some long rides on(although at speed the lack of wind protection gets old) The reliability factor for buell has gone up tremendously in the last few years. Personally I like the looks of the regular lighting and the firebolt better. On paper the cityx looks sweet but in person it didn't stir my soul. But it might stir yours. Good luck and don't let all the "it's a POS harley" comments that I'm sure will follow completley talk you out of the bike.

In the end....if you like it and are happy with it..then it's a great bike.

I've only sat on one but it felt small. The gas tank thing looked neat and there were a few other cool things but it's not for me. What type of riding will you be doing?

They just seem so small, but then again I am used to the size and weight of the 954.
Like Mike said, good comuter bike.

great gas milage, you will feel the torque on it. it will get you to 135mph what else do you need. it looks good. the HD riders will like you and the sportbike guys will like you.
easy maintenance, just do oil changes. i got an 03 and over 18k, very reliable. if long distance is what you want then go with the ULyses the new modified frame holds 4.4 gallons.
if you are not sure test ride the firebolt and lighting too, i was so close to getting the lighting and then when i rode the firebolt i knew it was made for me. if you are 5'11 and under its perfect. go to this page tons of buellers www.badweatherbikers.com.
if you wnat to test ride a bike , i recoment you bailtles cycles or ft washington HD. nice sales people.

I test drove the CityX in Frederick HD. Really I just wanted to get the free sling bag. It's definitely different from my CBRF4i. The riding position is comfortable until I got on the highway. I had to get used to having to hold on more. One thing that really bothered me is how clunky the clutch is. I figured it would be different after break in and synthetic oil.

I'm looking to get a 2nd bike, preferrably a V-twin. I'm also looking at the Monster, too bad they don't let you test ride those.


Thank you, that will be all.

ducatis are high maintenance and then trying to get someone to service them is another story.
i love their anti theft alarm though its really cool, wish buell would add that up to theri bikes.
