First Ride: 2008 Buell 1125R


The recent unveiling of Buell's all-new liquid-cooled V-Twin superbike sneaked up on most everyone, but the cry for such a machine from Buell has been in the wind for years.

"If only it had a modern, liquid-cooled engine," was often the plea of so many who would characterize their thoughts on Buells as, "I wanna like you, buuut..."

Has a partnership with BRP-Rotax given Buell lovers and those vacillating on a purchase what they've clamored for?

As fate would have it, in the matter of one phone call I went from pondering the above question like everyone else to seizing the opportunity to attend the 1125R intro. The much-chronicled roads surrounding Monterey, CA, would serve as real-world proving grounds, and Laguna Seca, home of the U.S. MotoGP would be the race track du jour.

In case you didn't get a chance to read our Buell 1125R First Look in early August, we'll go over some of the specs here. Developed in conjunction with BRP-Rotax, makers of the 998cc 60-degree V-Twin engine in the Can-Am Spyder as well as a similar motor found in modern Aprilias, Buell specified an 1125cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected 72-degree DOHC eight-valve V-Twin as the heart of the machine.
