Buell’s new bike has lastly been revealed to the plenty!
Exhibiting off a blacked-out piece of muscle set to launch riders into 175hp of hooning happiness, CEO Invoice Melvin has been cementing the Tremendous Cruiser™’s objective in our group by way of a current press launch.
“The market is stuffed with American producers recognized largely for large, heavy bikes – not quick, sizzling ones just like the well-known V-twins of the 30s,” explains Melvin.
“[This] design lends itself to the West coast scene the place customization is a part of bike tradition… and Roland was passionate about incorporating Buell expertise into that tradition, creating the quickest, coolest cruiser in the marketplace.”
As an alternative of the 185hp pony that we had beforehand anticipated with Buell’s teaser on social media, we see Buell®’s new Tremendous Cruiser™ touts 175hp and weighs in at 450lb, making for a power-to-weight ratio of .39hp per 1lb.
Rolands Sands (Roland Sands Design) contributed some fairly nifty tweaks, as properly; we see a revised chassis geometry aligned to a swingarm, forks, authentic 17″ wheels, and the compulsory Zero Torsional Load™ (ZTL™) disc brake design for which the corporate is so well-known.
“Floor clearance, bar place, and comfy seating and foot positions are key to getting the cruiser look with sport bike dealing with,” provides Sands within the launch.
“I’ve been engaged on tasks like this for 20-plus years, and that is the primary time we’ve been in a position to construct a efficiency cruiser with out the standard V-twin efficiency compromises of weight and motor width and size.”
All advised, we’re taking a look at a motorcycle designed to ship “distinctive dealing with in a non-sport bike format.”
