2008 model and 25th Anniversary edition. Barely run in. just done 2400 miles from new.
A very rare chance to buy what is now an instant classic. an immaculate Buell XB12 SCG. "Centre of Gravity" version - slightly lower and shorter than the standard 'S' Model and much harder to come by!
Bought new from HarleyWorld in 2008. this machine was one of the last produced at the East Troy plant in the USA. making it an instant modern classic. Without exaggeration. this is a superlative example of this historic. iconic motorcycle.
Awesome handling. thanks to its unique design - fuel in frame. oil in swingarm. ZTL radial brake. steep steering rake and underslung exhaust. belt drive - all creating exceptional balance and low centre of gravity.
Coupled with the highly tuned 1204 Harley oil and air cooled V-twin 'Thunderstorm' motor. with over 100bhp and nearly as much torque. this bike is an effortless joy to ride. whether its thumping along the M1. blasting through traffic or howling through the twisties on a B road. Fun from the moment you start it to the moment you stop.
This bike has the added benefit of being tastefully uprated. but all original components have been kept and it can be returned to factory specification if you so wish.
The modifications are:
Free spirit Belt tensioner
Remus Poweriser ECU
Stealth stainless steel exhaust with slash cut tip
Pipercross high performance cotton air filter
Wider Renthal bars
Oberon performance billet aluminium bar end mirrors.
Oberon performance billet aluminium reservoir covers.
Oberon performance black billet aluminium led indicators. front and rear.
Oberon performance black billet aluminium tax disc holder
Oberon performance black studded footpegs. F&R
Polyurethane crash bobbins fitted F&R
LED stop tail forged alloy tail tidy
Carbon fibre bodywork comprising of Air filter cover/tank. front mudguard. flyscreen. and oil cooler scoop.
Rear pillion seat cover
Polished footrest brackets. chromed rear brake lever.
Genuine Pazzo '5 click' brake and clutch levers.
This Buell attracts a great deal of interest. in fact pull up anywhere on this bike and you'll soon have a group of admirers wanting to know what it is etc. Run of the mill and anonymous these bikes are not.
This bike is a 2008 model. with just 2400 on the clock and a current MOT. It is kept garaged and covered and is in exceptional condition. Never crashed or dropped.
It is a very reluctant sale but I simply do not have the time to use or enjoy the bike as I should. I know I will never get a machine like this in this condition again.
Prices of these machines. in fact all Buell XB12's. are now on the up. They rarely come up for sale and even rarer in this condition. I'd go as far to say it is probably the only such bike for sale in the UK at present.
A unique opportunity to buy a piece of motorcycling history.
Will be supplied on its original number plate marque and with complete original tool kit.
In response to queries about PX - No thank-you.
I will not be considering shipping the bike outside the UK at present.
