I've always like them. The fear of not having backup and support after you buy it has always kept me away. (With good reason x 2 now)

A really innovative and unique bike.



I think buy one if you are keen , just don't pay a bomb for it. Maybe check how long Harley will carry Buell spares for and you can always bring in spares from USA. Who knows maybe they will be worth a lot of money in years to come. If you look after it you should have years of happy riding.

As far as I know, HD had to keep Buell spares for 7 years, which is now passed.
My wife wont part with her Buell (XB9SX)for anything, and quite understandably so. OK its not exactly
a high mileage bike, but all its cost in the 10 years we've had it is a battery and a fan. The fan
was working 100%, but kept throwing up an error on the ECU. Once my ship comes in (and it will
eventually), I'll own a Firebolt.
