– 2005 Buell Lightning XB12S and XB12Scg

The originator of the factory streetfighter, the Lightning combines minimalist styling, premium components and a gut-wrenching powerband from our own V-Twin. Read to tear away from the Pack? Tough choices in Thrust Blue, Racing Red or Midnight Black. Available in Lightnin XB12Scg for a lower center of gravity

The Buell Lightning XB12S and Firebolt XB12R will return to the lineup for 2005 relatively unchanged. A 1203cc fuel-injected air/oil/fan-cooled Thunderstorm V-Twin provides the power once again. New to the XB12S and Firebolt XB12R are a 43mm fully adjustable inverted front fork and the addition of Buell’s Thrust Blue color option.
