2008 Buell Lightning® XB12S

Lightning® XB12S
The streetfighter is at the core of what Buell® is all about. Pure sport-muscle performance. Broad, seamless power delivery. And superior handling. Upon closer inspection, you'll find nothing but premium components and lightweight materials. The Lightning® models also feature neutral ergonomics with wide bars and naturally-positioned footpegs. They provide great leverage, enabling you to ride confidently and aggressively.

With those muscular streetfighter looks that refuse to be ignored, the Lightning® XB12S is truly an original that is equally at home playing in the back alleys, or out on the open road.

An American streetfighter with radical 52-inch wheelbase, 21-degree rake and 3.3-inches of trail. Great agility for any riding situation. The 1,203-cubic-centimeter Thunderstorm® air/oil/fan-cooled, fuel-injected 45-degree V-twin pulls like a freight train right off idle.
