Buell 1125CR 2009 Buell 1125CR

Naked styling and clubman-style handlebars give a respectful nod to the nostalgic era of Café Racers, but styled in a thoroughly modern package. A 146-hp liquid-cooled V-Twin engine is geared down for optimum acceleration.

Sinister styling. Sophisticated technology. The 1125CR, Erik Buell’s 21st century interpretation of the classic Café Racer, is a new motorcycle that defies convention. Positioned behind the black-anodised, tapered aluminium handlebars and streamlined headlight and flyscreen, the rider has a wide-open view forward
that intensifies the sensation of speed. At 170kg, the 1125CR is the lightest litre-class naked street motorcycle on the market, and combined with 146 horsepower, it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in the category.

The Buell 1125CR offers liquid-cooled technology and responsive handling from a proven platform based on the Buell Trilogy of Tech principles. The Buell Helicon™ 1125 powertrain provides the foundation for this riding experience. This 1125cc DOHC V-Twin engine features a compact, 72-degree
design and is rated at 146 crankshaft horsepower and 82 ft. lbs. / 111 Nm of peak torque. Buell DDFI3 closed-loop EFI produces smooth throttle operation and better fuel economy. A ram-air system pressurises the 12-litre air box for a gain in peak performance. Twin side mounted radiators within aerodynamic
cowlings lower the centre of gravity and centralise mass. The exhaust system features a large-volume muffler mounted below the engine to optimise cg location and mass centralisation. An HVA (Hydraulic Vacuum Assist) Slipper Action clutch features hydraulic actuation from the hand control with assistance from engine vacuum for lighter clutch effort. Low 76/27 (2.815:1) final-drive gearing produces outstanding acceleration.

The engine is rigid-mounted as a structural component of the Buell Intuitive Response Chassis (IRC) that has outstanding torsional stiffness, yet is compliant in the planes required to help absorb mid-corner chatter, and
doubles as a 20.1 litre fuel reservoir. To enhance control under acceleration, the cast-aluminium swingarm is 5mm longer than the Buell 1125R swingarm. Showa® 47mm inverted forks and a Showa rear shock absorber are both fully adjustable. Positive braking performance is provided by the Buell ZTL2 front
brake system. The rear brake caliper is mounted directly to the inner surface of the swing arm and weighs 0.7kg less than a typical rear-brake design.

All this performance is packaged in a motorcycle that is visually stunning. A narrow headlight pod incorporates a clipped flyscreen, while a hard cowl covers the passenger seat section. The blacked-out frame and chassis components contrast with red highlights on the front brake caliper, wheel rims and rear shock spring. The Buell 1125CR will be offered with Racing Red or Midnight Black bodywork. For riders who prefer our traditional streetfighter bar we are launching a new black annodised handlebar as a P&A offering –
