Full details

I am selling my Buell XB1200S Lightning. The bike is in immaculate condition and has never been out in the rain. It has only 2,160 miles from new -I am the first and only owner since it was purchased from Sycamore Harley Davidson centre in November 2009.
I have a full dealer service history. Tax to November 2014 and MOT to May 2015. It is kept in the garage. The bike is totally original except for uprated tax disc holder.
The technology in this very last ever produced Buell is fantastic, the brakes are out of this world, the fuel is in the frame and the oil is all in the swinging arm, all designed to keep the weight at the lowest point.
This bike is a collector’s item and I am not interested in offers or swaps or dealer enquiries. There will not be a better bike out there for the money and super low mileage.

£6500 OVNO.

Review, spec & performance

Buell XB12S Lightning (2003-current)

MCN overall rating rating is 4
Owners' overall rating rating is 4.5

MCN review overall verdict:  "The Buell XB12S Lightning is weird but it works. An antique, character-rich engine in a stubby street-fighter motorcycle chassis dripping technical innovation. Buell motorcycles is a subsidiary of Harley-Davidson set up by employee/ motorcycle racer/visionary Eric Buell. The Buell XB12S Lightning is a very individual motorcycle and hugely enjoyable to ride. Easy to love if hard to justify."   Read full review
