Brief History of Buell Motorcycles
Founded by Erik Buell, a former Harley-Davidson engineer, in 1983, Buell motorcycles initially gained attention for using Harley-Davidson V-twin engines in smaller sportbike frames. One of their early standout models was the Lightning XB9S and XB12S, known for their minimalist design and exposed components.
Over the years, Buell introduced new models such as the adventure touring Ulysses XB12X and XB12XT, as well as limited-edition and concept bikes like the track-focused 1125RR and the futuristic Barracuda.
In 1993, Buell re-established its relationship with Harley-Davidson, eventually leading to the acquisition of Buell Motorcycles. However, in 2009, Harley-Davidson discontinued Buell due to restructuring. Despite no longer being an active manufacturer, the Buell brand continues to have a loyal fan base worldwide.
Most Popular Buell Motorcycles
Renowned for their innovative design and performance, Buell motorcycles have garnered a devoted following. Although the company no longer produces motorcycles, its iconic models are still highly regarded. Here are the three most popular Buell motorcycles:’
- Lightning XB9S
The minimalist XB9S features a 984cc V-twin engine for responsive power. Its rear fully adjustable Showa shocks and upside-down front forks contribute to improved aerodynamics and a controlled ride.
- Firebolt XB12R
Known for its aggressive styling, the Firebolt XB12R boasts a powerful 1203cc, 45-degree V-twin engine, and proprietary KTL brakes, offering impressive acceleration and responsive braking. Its focus on aerodynamics is evident in the "Uniplanar" frame, which utilizes the fuel tank as a structural element, reducing weight and enhancing handling. The Zero Torsional Load (ZTL) braking system also reduces unsprung weight.
- Ulysses XB12X
Designed as an adventure tourer for off-roading and long-distance touring, the Ulysses XB12X features a rugged design with a 1203cc air/oil-cooled, 45-degree V-twin engine for exceptional torque and power. Its higher seating position provides better visibility, while the front suspension handles bumps effectively. Riders can adjust the rear fully adjustable Showa shock for personalized responsiveness and shock absorption.
