American V-Twin muscle and track-inspired chassis dynamics, the 2008 Buell Firebolt XB12R offers sportbike riders an unrivaled riding experience. Powerful, well-balanced, reliable and also easy to own, the Buell Firebolt is a sport motorcycle, perfect for track-days or carving up and down mountain ranges. Won pro and amateur roadracing championships around the world, the Firebolt was also presented with the coveted "Best Cornering Motorcycle of All Time" award by Britain?s Bike magazine.
The Firebolt XB12R is powered by the air/oil/fan-cooled 1203cc Thunderstorm V-Twin engine tuned to deliver immediate, usable power over a broad rpm range and launch the Firebolt out of corners and down the road. The Buell Trilogy of Technology principles ? frame rigidity, low unsprung weight and mass centralization ? are employed to give the Firebolt uncanny, intuitively responsive handling. Styled to reveal its pure, mechanical beauty, the Buell Firebolt looks and performs like no other motorcycle on the road.
