We have been discussing this bike at www.aussiebuellriders.info on the 1125R forum

opinion is divided but i would say that the greater majority think the bike is a bit on the ugly side.

its a shame because its got a great motor.

no, it's not as sexy as the 1098. But a huge performance leap nonetheless, and not totally utt-bugly. But with all the technological oddities of the Buell line, it's not that surprising to me that their bikes are weird looking

See one in person before you judge the looks. You won't even notice the pods at first glance when you're near the bike.

this bike is awsome, i rode it on the track. I had no problem passing an R6 on the straight. bike hits 160mph with no problem, exteemly powerfull and for the guys that liek ducatis or bikes with torque the 1125r answers your dreams of speed. the sliper clutch is awsome for the price. 8 piston caliper cuts my braking distance in half without any jerking or locking. Erik buell is on his way to see a buell win an AMA within 2 year time.
