2009 Buell 1125R
For most superbike manufacturers, engineering the perfect sportbike begins with a focus on the machine. That’s not the case with Buell. It all begins with the rider. It features intuitive handling, an ideal rider environment and a broad, predictable powerband, compliments of the light and compact 1125cc liquid-cooled, DOHC V-Twin.
The Buell 1125RR is the newest bike to be approved for competition in AMA Pro American Superbike and will make its debut this weekend at Mid-Ohio ridden by Taylor Knapp.
