Pictured Used as a graphic element above is the Buell that never was. Captured testing near Milwaukee by a Road Racer X photographer, it was rumored to be a lighter, more powerful 1199cc version of the 1125R platform. It looks like a serious competitor for bikes like the Ducati 1198 and Aprilia RSV4 R.
Then there’s the next photo. If you think Buell’s lost potential is
hard to look at then we warn you, the fate of bikes leftover at the
factory may bring you to tears. If you think you can handle it, you’ll
find it below the jump.
Update: Image pulled at request of photographer who fails to understand the power of teh internets. Rights free illustration of the bike courtesy of HFL to follow shortly.>

didn’t calculate how much money it would save, if any by killing Buell;
