Thats not quite true, I believe teh XB9s are pretty light weight. I race Harleys on a weekly basis. I believe the motors are too tempermental to use in a reliable motard application. And dont even consider the Blast...it could easily be rebaged the POS. Now if Erik Buell could talk HD into designing his own, self built motor for a Motard application, we would pry have one bad streetbike. Look what he has done with a 100 year old design..imagine what we would get with his ability applied to modern day thumper....SuperMoto7 said:I agree. Buell isn't know for building light bikes. Plus some of the "old school" Buell riders have been crying for a larger bike since the XB series came out.
