 New Buell 1125R DSB 2009Comparison


An engine is an air pump first. The more air it can pump the more power it produces. The faster that it revs, the more air it pumps. Displacement is just one measure of how "big" an engine is, and it is not the best one”... What then would be the best measure??? RPMs? But surely you realize Jimidan that an 1125cc motor spinning at 10500 rpm pumps way more air than 599cc motor spinning at 15000rpm. And it is true because if it wasn’t the Buell would not be putting down way more HP than the 600s. Notice I did not mention torque because the Buell’s displacement alone will guarantee an advantage there. But its HP number shows that not only is the motor bigger but it is also pumping more air. Motors that pump less air make less HP it is a fact not my opinion. This is also why super chargers and turbo add so much HP; they pump more air, this is why bigger motors built to similar tune as smaller motors make more HP, they PUMP more air. This is a fact lost on you I guess. “If you think that the Kawasaki used in this test has similar performance stats to Hacking's bike, you are dumber than the Buell is ugli”. Please tell all of us Jimidan how much more HP is Hacking’s zx6r making over a stock zx6r, I am just dieing to know!!. “but has bodywork that was designed by the wind tunnel and not some gay fashion designer named Pierre. It is also quite functional...and function should be above form on a sporting motorcycle, or all of them would look like cruisers too. The Buell was NOT designed to be a race bike” If the 1125r was NOT designed to be a race bike then why all bother with wind tunnel testing? “Just think how good of a race bike Erik Buell could have designed if he had wanted to” Jimidan, don’t you mean if Austria/Rotax wanted it to be a race bike. Without the European motor in that American “assembled”, not built, bike, the Buell would not stand a chance no matter how many cc you give it, as in XBRR. The Buell 1125r racing in the Daytona Sportbike class is a joke, DMG is a joke and so are all the BuellTards trying to justify and rationalize why the 1125 is allowed. Well I will close with a simple question that will always silence the BuellTards: If it is fair for the Buell to race with 1125cc against 600s because it is a V-twin then WHY can’t Ducati race their 1098 but instead are only allowed 848cc???



If I was a racer with teams coming to me to ride for them this year I would go for the Buell knowing what I know now. With the modifications and cc advantage allowed it seems to have a distinct advantage and if I made my paycheck based on winning races I would want whichever bike would make it easiest for me to reach that goal. No doubt that’s the Buell. It’s the easiest on tires, the easiest to turn – everything about it is easy. And when pushing at that level I want it to be as easy as possible. Behind it would be the Kawasaki and then the Aprilia. As we all know the Kawasaki is awesome. Handles great, big power for a 600, looks way better than last year – it’s an awesome bike. If I was buying a personal track bike that would be my choice, but when it comes to racing and considering the rules this year, you would be stupid to not ride a Buell. As for the Aprilia, if I had a load of cash and wanted a cool street bike this would be it. But it’s just getting a bit long in the tooth for track duty and for sure it would be hard to race something that starts out weighting as much as a WWII armored tank.
