2009 Buell Firebolt XB12R

The original Buell sportfighter, the Buell Firebolt XB12R has evolved into one of the most versatile sportbikes on any road or track today. The Firebolt is known for the precise handling provided by a 52-inch wheelbase, 21-degree rake and 3.3-inch trail. Combining agility with the performance of an American-made Thunderstorm 45-degree, air-cooled 1203 cc V-Twin engine, the Firebolt delivers both character and performance.

The blacked-out Thunderstorm engine produces 103 peak horsepower at 6800 rpm, and 84 ft. lbs. of peak torque at 6000 rpm, with 85 percent of peak torque available over 2500 rpm. The Buell InterActive Exhaust system
utilizes a valve in the dual-chamber muffler that is controlled by the ECM and adjusts exhaust flow according to riding conditions to smooth torque delivery and optimize engine power.

The 2009 Firebolt has enhanced braking performance from the Buell ZTL2 front brake, a four-pad, eight-piston system also used on the 1125R and originally developed for the Buell XBRR race motorcycle. Three-zone Pirelli Diablo Corsa III tires are also now standard equipment on the Firebolt.

Up front, the Firebolt features a fully adjustable Showa inverted fork, while the rear is equipped with an adjustable Showa shock.

The Veyance Hibrex drive belt with Flexten Plus technology, based on the belt developed for the Buell 1125R, is strong and durable while weighing about four pounds less than a chain drive. The Firebolt comes with clip-on-style handlebars for optimal control, an aerodynamic quarter-fairing with dual projector-beam headlamps, and a covered trim passenger pillion.

New colors include Midnight Black with Cherry Bomb translucent wheels and Arctic White with Hero Blue translucent wheels, with color-match translucid windscreen. For 2009 the Firebolt has blacked-out frame, powertrain and other components.

BUELL SPORTBIKES BUILT TO PERFORM WITH PRECISION AND POWER
Buell 1125R and Firebolt XB12R are the Real Deal for 2009

EAST TROY, Wis. (July 22, 2008) – Buell Sportbikes take control of the road in 2009, ready to fuel the passion of the most demanding sportbike riders on the road or track.

Buell sportbikes feature an athletic motorcycle riding position, which allows the rider to fully enjoy the handling advantages of the Buell Trilogy of Technology: chassis rigidity, mass centralization, and low unsprung weight. Designed to respond intuitively to rider commands, Buell sportbikes combine real-world street performance with race-proven design. With incomparable styling, the Buell 1125R and Firebolt XB12R blend innovative technology with premium components to create an extraordinary riding experience.

The 2009 Buell 1125R stands out in the sportbike field with exotic styling and technical innovation, including the performance of a 146-hp, liquid-cooled 72-degree V-Twin engine. The 2009 XB12R Firebolt is a muscular sportfighter providing award-winning handling and raw torque from a 45-degree air-cooled V-Twin engine. Designed from the rider down, each Buell sportbike combines V-Twin power with unmatched precision and agility.

Buell 1125R
The motorcycle that redefines the superbike category the 2009 Buell 1125R is powered by the 1125 cc liquid-cooled 72-degree V-Twin Helicon engine generating 146 crank hp and 82 ft. lbs. of peak torque. With a foundation built on the core Buell Trilogy of Technology creating optimum performance, the 1125R remains true to Buell’s original sense of sportbike style and design.

New for 2009 on the 1125R and 1125CR models are targeted fuel injectors, relocated O2 sensors, and updated engine spark and fuel maps. The combination of these features offers improved drivability below 6000 rpm, even crisper throttle response, improved heat management, and significantly improved fuel economy. The updated engine spark and fuel maps will also be made available for 2008 1125R models.

A new gear position readout is added to the digital display on the instrument panel as a scroll-to feature. A high-output alternator has increased capacity for accessory use. Slider bobbins have been added to the swingarm for protection and easy use of a rear stand.

The front wheel rides on fully adjustable Showa 47 mm upside-down forks, while the Buell ZTL2 front brake has an eight-piston caliper. A smooth-shifting six-speed transmission works with a HVA (Hydraulic Vacuum Assist) slipper-action clutch that uses engine vacuum for easy clutch-lever action and reduced engine braking during downshifts.

Quiet Zone aerodynamics optimize air flow around the rider for enhanced race performance and rider comfort. The fairing shape was developed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, and features six-bulb headlamps, while LED turn signals are integrated into the mirror housings.

The 1125R is restyled for 2009 with new blacked-out chassis components, and is offered in Midnight Black and new Racing Red with Phantom Metallic (Black) wheels, and Arctic White with Hero Blue translucent wheels. Production of the 2009 1125R is scheduled to begin in late September 2008.
