2003 Buell XB9R
Great fun! A real grin machine. Get one
The speedometer sensor failed early on. Factory upgraded component was installed, and have had zero problems since.
Excellent street bike. This thing handles like no other I've ridden before, and will nip at the heels of bike with almost twice the horsepower on a tight twisty road. It will spank them if you're a better rider.
It's comfortable to ride given its ergonomics. About 300 miles in one day is about the best I've done.
The reliability of this bike is equal to anything currently on the market. It's got 20k on the odometer now, and I know it's good for many more times that.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
