2009 Buell Ulysses XB12X

With long-travel suspension, generous 6.75-inch ground clearance, and aggressive Pirelli Scorpion Sync tires, the Buell Ulysses XB12X can carry its rider over dirt, gravel and other unpaved road surfaces. On smooth pavement, the XB12X performs as a high-performance sport motorcycle, ready to blitz through the twisties.

A wide Supermoto-style handlebar gives the rider extra leverage and control behind wind deflectors and a two-piece windscreen designed to limit buffeting. The broad, torque-filled powerband of the 103-hp Buell Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin engine gives the Ulysses the ability to proceed at lower speeds over unpaved roads with less gear shifting, and the power to bomb down paved backroads.

Premium Showa front (6.51 inches travel) and rear (6.38 inches travel) suspension is fully adjustable. Rear spring preload can be adjusted by turning a dial located below the left side of the seat. Features that help make the XB12X adventure-ready include the Triple Tail system, which folds through three positions to function as a luggage rack with tie-down hooks over the rear seat position, as a cushioned passenger backrest with grab rails, or as a luggage rack extended over the rear fender. Optional top and side cases are also available for the XB12X as accessory items. A dual front fender system provides debris protection for the rider and the bike. The XB12X is offered with Barricade Orange or Thrust Blue bodywork.

Media Press Release:

BUELL ADVENTURE SPORTBIKES ARE DYNAMIC PERFORMERS
Two Buell Ulysses Models Display Distinct Personalities

EAST TROY, Wis. (July 22, 2008) – The 2009 Buell Adventure Sportbike line includes two Ulysses models created for riders seeking a motorcycling experience beyond the ordinary. While the Ulysses XB12X and Ulysses XB12XT are designed to perform distinctly different missions, each offers a combination of comfort, versatility and performance that make them among the most dynamic motorcycles on any road today.

The Buell Trilogy of Technology – chassis rigidity, mass centralization, and low unsprung weight – forms the foundation of both Ulysses models. The hollow aluminum perimeter frame is the core of a rigid chassis, and doubles as a 4.4-gallon fuel tank to help lower the center of gravity. For the same reason, the muffler is located below the engine, and the Ulysses swingarm is also does double duty as the oil reservoir. The 103-hp Buell Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin engine is tuned to deliver a broad powerband and the on-demand torque a rider can use in the real world.

An upright riding position, comfortable ergonomics, and rider-focused features like a two-piece windscreen, adjustable suspension and heated hand grips, make these Ulysses models truly multi-function motorcycles, ready for commuting, touring and back-road exploration. Handling is intuitive. The performance is thrilling.

New on Buell Adventure Sport Models for 2009

Improved Drive Belt – A new Veyance Hibrex drive belt with Flexten Plus technology, based on the belt developed for the Buell 1125R, has increased strength and durability.

Improved Footpegs – New black footpegs have an aggressive sawtooth pattern for optimal foot stability in all conditions and riding positions.

New Ulysses Police model – The Ulysses Police XB12XP is designed for use by government agencies in situations requiring travel on paved and unpaved roads and the agility and performance of an adventure sport motorcycle. It is equipped with police-specific lighting, a larger top case and more-compact side cases, and other special equipment. (See separate release for full details.)
