Buell 1125CR 2009 : Reviews and Specs

Buell 1125CR  2009

Buell 1125CR 2009 , The 2009 Buell 1125CR is powered by an 1125cc Helicon engine with a claimed 146 hp @ 9000 rpm. The Helicon 1125cc engine is extremely compact and benefits from three internal counter-balancers that keep vibes down. Buell's proprietary ZTL2 front brake system works well on the track, but on the streets it feels vague. Beull took riders to Spreewaldring Motodrom for some tire-shredding fun aboard its newest track weapon.While its rigid chassis lends itself well on a smooth, fast racetrack, on the often bumpy, cobblestone-laden roadways the entire bike - especially the rear end, feels way too stiff.Riding through Germany's beautiful autumn countryside revealed perhaps the only real flaw in the 1125CR's relatively impregnable armor. While its rigid chassis lends itself well on a smooth, fast racetrack, on the often bumpy, cobblestone-laden roadways the entire bike--especially the rear end feels way too stiff. Even removing most of the preload from the rear shock did next to nothing to reduce harshness. On the contrary, the bike's seat is one of the most comfortable I've ever sampled on a sportbike, but due to the rough riding rear suspension its advantages are almost canceled out.
