BUELL GROW UK SALES 37% - January 19, 2008, 09:06 AM

BUELL GROW UK SALES 37%
18 January 2008

The word from Buell UK;

An independent report has confirmed the rise in popularity of niche motorcycle brands in the UK, with Buell® displaying the fastest growth in 2007. The innovative American manufacturer – whose founder Erik Buell is still heavily involved in the development of new motorcycles – grew by 36.96 per cent in the UK market.

Two other niche motorcycle brands also appeared in the top four percentage growth figures, while some of the major manufacturers showed signs of slowing sales. However, the overall picture for motorcycle sales growth looks positive for the industry as a whole, despite increasing legislative threat and the introduction of more difficult testing and training procedures later this year.

The Buell® brand’s growth is expected to accelerate further in 2008 as a result of the introduction of the unique 1125R. The liquid-cooled machine – in authorised Buell UK dealerships from March with an on the road price of £8,495 – represents a new direction for the brand and complements the existing air-cooled range.

The 1125R replaces the popular XB12R Firebolt in the 2008 model line-up. It also has an increase in horsepower of 46bhp over its predecessor, making it Buell’s most powerful production motorcycle to date. However, the focus on performance and handling (as opposed to top speed) has been retained in the motorcycle’s design along with the Trilogy of Technology concept.

Buell® was the first manufacturer to use a fuel-in-frame design to achieve the optimal centre of gravity, which helps to make quick direction changes seem effortless. The other two key design components are chassis rigidity for improved cornering and low unsprung weight for increased stability.

“These sales growth figures are extremely positive,” says Buell® UK Managing Director Paul Stroud. “2007 was a strong year for Buell® and we aim to build on that to make the brand’s 25th anniversary in 2008 one to remember.

“We’re entering an exciting new area with the 1125R and hope that this will provide an added dimension. In addition, the air-cooled XB family is stronger than ever with improvements to existing models including small engine updates, heated grip plug-ins and limited edition anniversary graphics.”

Once again, it takes about 3 seconds to make an ass of yourself. Way to be predictable.

Men are qualified for civil liberties in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites: in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity...Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. ~Edmund Burke, Political Theorist and Philosopher

Wow, proof stupidity is not merely an american invention.

Isn't gas about 80 guineas, 4 shillings, a thrupenny and a half pence a litre over there? And aren't buells about the lease fuel-efficient motorcycles known?

I think the primary sales pitch is "Buell, so little horsepower, you don't have to worry about speed cameras or high UK insurance"

Fortunately, this means our secret plan of exporting people dumb enough to buy buells before the adoption of the rotax motor is working...unfortunately, we exported them to our friends. Why can't we send them to burma or someplace...without internet access
