2009 Buell Lightning XB12Scg

2009 Buell Lightning XB12Scg Buell Lightning XB12Scg Buell XB12Scg

Lowered suspension and a reshaped saddle drops the seat height of the XB12Scg to just 726mm – for a lower centre of gravity and a shorter reach to the ground – with no compromise to handling or performance. The powerful Buell ZTL2 eight-piston front brake caliper is new for 2009. Blacked-out engine, frame, swingarm, fork and other components give the XB12Scg a menacing new look. The muscular Buell Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin backs it up with pavement-pounding power. Available with Midnight Black, Cherry Bomb Translucent or Hero Blue Translucent bodywork.
