– 2005 Buell Firebolt XB9R
A flawless chemistry of man and machine, the Firbolt isn’t a motorcycle you ride. It’s a motorcycle you become. Sport-minded performance is achieved through a unique blend of technological brilliance and classic V-Twin power. XB12R comes in Thrust Blue, Racing Red or Midnight Black. XB9R in Sunfire Yellow.
The Firebolt XB9R has the same styling features of the XB12R but is powered by a slightly smaller motor. The XB9R comes with a Thunderstorm 984cc fuel-injected air/oil/fan-cooled V-Twin engine that produces 92 hp. The only other difference is that this smaller Firebolt supports a bright Sunfire Yellow color and rolls on white wheels.
