Buell Motorcycle used the XB12R Firebolt as an opportunity to break all the sportbike rules. The XB12R is aimed at that group of people who desire the weight, agility, and style of a sportbike but crave the sound and feel of an air-cooled American V-twin engine. If you’re interested in a bike with plenty of torque and quick handling the 2010 Buell XB12R Firebolt is worth a look.
