2004 Buell Lightning XB12S

New this year is the Lightning XB12S. Powered by a gut-wrenching 1203cc V-Twin stump-puller, it cranks out 24% more torque that puts the power you need exactly where you want it. The style is confident and dramatic. Translucent Amber wheels, a Magnesium Tone engine case and a Graphite Grey frame differentiate it from anything you’ve seen before. The InterActive exhaust system features an electronically-controlled actuator and a dual chamber muffler to help maintain a strong power delivery curve.
