2009 Buell 1125R Buell 1125R Buell 1125 R

Buell Sportbikes Take a Dark Turn for 2009 The primal nature of the Buell sportbike is darkly sculpted in style for 2009 with new black components such as the Phantom Metallic frame and swingarm with blacked-out footpeg mounts and heel guards. Buell 1125R. Continuing to help redefine the superbike category, the 2009 Buell 1125R is powered by the 1125cc liquid-cooled 72-degree V-Twin Heliconengine generating 146 crank hp and 82 ft. lbs. / 111 Nm of peak torque.

With a foundation built on the core Buell Trilogy of Technology creating optimum performance, the 1125R remains just as true to Buell’s original sense of sportbike style and design. In addition to new blacked-out chassis components, the 2009 Buell 1125R adds a variety of styling and design cues, including Racing Red and Arctic White bodywork colours and new graphics schemes. Wheels also receive new translucent colours of Velvacoat Black with the Racing Red and Midnight Black bodywork and Hero Blue with the Arctic White bodywork. A new tinted windscreen (Hero Blue on the Arctic White bodywork and Smoked on the Racing Red and Midnight Black), leads the way on the 1125R, while there is a new gear position readout that can easily be scrolled to read with digital display on the instrument cluster.

A high-output alternator has increased capacity for accessory use and a slider bobbin to support a track stand has been added to the swingarm for easier maintenance. The front wheel rides on fully adjustable Showa 47 mm upside-down forks, while the Buell ZTL2 front brake has an eight-piston caliper. A smooth-shifting six-speed transmission works with a HVAS (Hydraulic Vacuum Assist Slipper) clutch that uses engine vacuum for easy clutch-lever action. Quiet Zone aerodynamics optimise air flow around the rider for enhanced race bike performance and rider comfort. The fairing shape is inspired by the Buell XBRR and features four-bulb headlamps, while turn signals are integrated into the mirror housings.

The Buell 1125R is offered in Midnight Black or Racing Red with Velvacoat Black wheels, or Arctic White with Hero Blue wheels.
