May be sac religious but does anyone have any feedback on the Buell 1125 with the Rotax power plant? Thanks

I don't know much about the 1125's other than my buddy that worked at Buell said they handled great and made great power...Ö.and the early ones did have some gremlins.  Check out Badweatherbikers 1125R forum at the following link.

Hopefully the link works, otherwise just google, badweatherbikers.............ted

from what I hear it has 145 horsepower on a 385 pound bike. That power to weight ratio is astounding. I would love to try one out although I don't think I would want to open it right up...

No sir itís not and mine is the CR model which has a bit lower gearing than the R easy 90-100 in 3rd. Redline is 10,500 gets there in a hurry. Only real problem Iíve read about is the charging system but it can be fixed . There are 1190 big bore kits available thinking about doing that!!
