This is the kinda long wheel base I wanted Buell to stick with and keep available. Too bad it doesnt have an all Aluminum frame with gas in the frame. Or an Alum swing arm with oil in the swing arm .

Love the nostalgic look, hate the radiator. If it was air cooled I would be having a sit on one.





Why on Earth would you want this to be air cooled?

Nostalgia?

I don't understand..

Help me out here .

I like that it doesn't have a lot of body work covering it up. Nice raw look to it. I couldn't ride one that riding position would have me sore very quickly.

Aftermarket will probably make something to go around the radiator to blend it in better.

Looks tiny. At 6'3, I need to stretch out a bit. If I add another bike to the stable, I might go for an Eluder.

See post #7. I completely understand the necessity but I just think they look like an afterthought, rarely incorporated into the design of something that is otherwise well put together. I love the simplicity of air cooled and you can still get more than enough performance.

Like a flatty in a 32, it is just the way it should be.

There is no way they could have done that because.

1. BS EPA regulations that do not care about your recreational freedoms.
2. The motor maybe needs the volume and design. It is packing HP. Not a HD 750
