    Looks like buell is ditching the 1957 engine...Video Link in article is broken.

    Wow, 146 horse power. Thats Ducati 999 territory isnt it? And its about time they made those damn things longer. I really think they lose a lot of sales cause nobody can fit on one.

    well this is 3 inches longer so should be nice, and the 146 is at the crank so figure 135 on the ground and the 84 ft lbs of torque with the hp will = fun
    i plan on getting one as long as it is a comfy ride

    looks like it could be a pretty awesome bike. i love the sound of the vtwins, but thats probably because i ride a suzuki TL. how are buell's priced? are they as bad as their HD counterparts?
