2009 Buell Lightning CityX XB9SX

Buell Lightning CityX XB9SX 2009 Buell Lightning CityX XB9SX

A Street bike for the middle-weight class, the CityX was designed especially for the urban environment. The torque and broad powerband of the Buell Thunderstorm 984 V-Twin engine lets the CityX pull briskly away from traffic and accelerate past pesky cabs, while an upright rider position, wide Supermoto-style handlebars and intuitive handling help the CityX scat around potholes and dodge through back alleys. A new saddle shape for 2009 drops the seat height by 33mm to 764mm. Hand deflectors, dual headlight grilles, and frame pucks fend off minor cosmetic damage. Pirelli Scorpion Sync tyres grip all road surfaces and add aggressive style. Available with Cherry Bomb Translucent or Hero Blue Translucent bodywork.
