Buell X1 1200 LIGHTNING 1999

Driving a Buell is an intense, exciting moment, a source of rare, pure, and wild emotions. A toy with a strong temperament that ignores any compromise, shakes up ideas and makes you share the rage he has in his stomach. The X1 is the opposite of an XJR 1300. Voluptuous and cozy side point of a 4-cylinder with its flexibility and good manners. Here, it’s crude American mechanics. The rocked twin Harley that equips the Lightning gets a nasty boost. Brought to 95 nags by the Buell workshops, the large mill develops an incredible potato in the mid-range.

A thousand times unfortunately, the final reduction, imposed by homologation standards, strain the performance of the machine. Infuriating. Especially after having tasted the excellent road behavior and the vitality of the road behavior of the American … as long as you move on billiards. On less maintained roads, the suspensions do an inglorious job. Although reversed, the fork may be overtaken by strong braking. Because power, the big front disc does not lack.
To match the strong mechanical personality of the bike, the design is singularly revealing. Stocky appearance, pot and shock absorber stashed under the engine, passenger seat almost non-existent – It’s clear, it looks good. Forget the practicalities, the machine only exists for adrenaline. A motorcycle that demands passion, that is experienced more than it is driven.
