2006 Buell Blast

2006 Blast® Overview

The Buell Blast is a motorcycle any rider will enjoy. This lightweight single inspires confidence in beginners, yet offers enough power and refined agility to satisfy the performance expectations of the most experienced motorcyclist. Easy to own and maintain – and easy on fuel at 68 miles per gallon – the Buell Blast is a fun and economical way to get around town or down the highway.

Built for the Real World
The Blast is powered by a reliable, 492cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 34 horsepower and offers a broad powerband for easy starts and brisk acceleration, and ample power for highway riding. The muffler is located below the engine to promote a low center of gravity and keep the exhaust away from the legs of the rider and passenger.

With a dry weight of just 360 pounds, the Blast is easy for most riders to handle, and when fitted with an optional low-profile seat, the seat height is just 25.5 inches, so just about any rider can reach the ground to balance at a stop. The standard Blast seat height is 27.5 inches. A Showa gas-charged rear shock and 37mm Showa forks feature progressive-rate springs that provide a controlled and comfortable ride. An automatic choke, low-effort brakes and a low-effort, reduced-reach clutch lever are all designed to make the Blast easier to operate.

Easy Economy
The Blast is also designed to be easy to maintain, with self-adjusting hydraulic valve lifters and a Kevlar-reinforced drive belt that never needs lubrication or adjustment. Fuel economy is 68 mpg in city riding, and a 2.8-gallon fuel tank delivers a cruising range of nearly 200 miles. The Blast is built to be durable, with tough Surlyn composite body panels. The color is molded into the Surlyn, so light scratches can simply be buffed out. The 2006 Blast is offered in Battle Blue or Midnight Black.
