2008 Buell Ulysses XB12XT Review

Motorcycle.com reviews the 2008 Buell Ulysses XB12XT. Be sure to read the article and watch the video and let us know what you think by posting within this thread



As a company, Buell's products not only defy many conventions, the business itself seems to be defying the trend of challenging sales in some parts of the industry. "Sales were up in January and February," Paul James, Buellís Director-Product Communication told Motorcycle.com. Though exact figures weren't available, thatís an interesting fact considering Buell's parent company, Harley-Davidson, has felt a bit of an impact from the tightening U.S. economy.

No doubt the forward momentum owes a great deal to the company's late-2007 release of the highly-anticipated liquid-cooled V-Twin 1125R, especially considering "dealer fill" (each dealer that wanted an 1125R has received at least one unit) has already been achieved. But the company's current sales success is also due to the humble Ulysses. Of the nine bikes making up the product line, six of those carry the letters XB; of those, the Uly is the strongest selling machine according to Chris Nelson, Director of Product Planning for Buell.

Good article!

For some reason that bike just looks kind of scrunched up to me. Is it just me?

I have had my XB12XT for a week now and have put 1500 miles on it. So far the only complaint is TOO MUCH HEAT off the exhaust. Any ideas as to how I can cool it down some?

I bought my 08 XB12X last year in april.* My wife, coolest girl ever, bought it for me for my retirement from the Army present! * My bike gets hot at slow speeds during summer.* But during the winter it is great.* I guess you can't have everything.* I am running conventional oil, wonder if it would stay cooler with synthetic?* Whatcha think?* Be safe ou there!Rick
