Buell Unveils Ultimate Motorbike For Riders

By SmartHouse Team | Wednesday | 23/04/2008

Motorbikes are often about style and muscle, but is the rider overlooked in the equation? American motorcycle company Buell has decided it's time to look after the rider with the launch of its new 1125R superbike.

"We designed the 1125R from the rider down," said Buell chairman and chief technical officer, Erik Buell.

"The 1125R takes Buell to a new level of performance, while continuing to embrace the fundamental Buell principles of motorcycle design and offering a great motorcycle riding experience."

Designed to be the ultimate "riders' bike," the 1125R Helicon engine is a new 1125cc DOHC V-Twin, the first liquid-cooled engine to power a street-legal Buell motorcycle. It is rated at 146 crankshaft horsepower, and is designed to deliver optimised usable power, with a broad powerband across its 10500 rpm range.

The engine is cradled in a new Buell Intuitive Response Chassis with massive, rigid aluminium spars that double as the fuel reservoir. The new 1125R sticks to the three tenants of the Buell Trilogy of Technology - chassis rigidity, low unsprung weight and mass centralisation - to deliver race-inspired agility and handling, the company says. The all-new front fairing and radiator cowling was developed using the latest computational fluid dynamics models to deliver improved aerodynamics, rider comfort, and efficient air flow to longitudinal radiators and a ram-air intake system.

With an athletic riding position, Quiet Zone aerodynamics are achieved by managing air flow around the rider. The toe levers on both the brake and shift foot controls are adjustable to match rider foot size. The instrument cluster features a large analogue tachometer and a digital speedometer, plus an Onboard Diagnostic Information System screen and other interactive features. The fairing shape is inspired by the Buell XBRR and features six-bulb headlamps. LED turn signals are integrated into the mirror housings.

The Buell 1125R is available with Midnight Black bodywork, Diamond Blue wheels, Diamond Blue frame and swingarm, and Fusion Bronze engine trim.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
