    ahh.. this might be my next bike

    i pipe dream ofcourse, since im broke..

    but buell just released their new sportbike.. a 1125CC 72* vtwin... liquid cooled... 6spd... 146hp, 84ft-lbs torque...... they fixed just about every bitch i had about their old bike.. if it rides anything like the current one, i really want one.

              Yeah I agree MrD (sorry to hear about your engine grief, by the way).

              Rotax engine in the Buell so like the Tuono to me (yaaay Tuono at Daytona too! ).

              Ok I admit I'm an Aprilia nut, hehe (ex BiL was an Aprilia dealer by the way).

              But that new 750 V twin, with 95bhp, Shivveeeeer indeed! *grins*

              Nice write up, piccys, etc on Shiver here:

                Have been looking at the Aprilia Shiver and wondering if it the spiritual successor to the Bros/Hawk. I want one! But then again I want just about every bike there is! Dream is of a CR500 cafe racer. All stripped back and minimal with a stinky stroker sitting in the middle - air cooled, all fins and oil with an ear splitting expansion chamber
