The Firebolt isn't a conventional sportbike. It isn't a racer replica. It isn't an anything replica. Buell calls the Firebolt a "sport fighter"--a fuel-injected 45-degree Milwaukee V-twin torque-pump, artfully shoehorned into a chassis with dimensions resembling a 250cc racebike's.   Powered by a  984cc Sportster-derived motor. Various strands of design DNA come from Harley-Davidson's XL family, but it's not really a Sportster engine, either. everything from the pistons and connecting rods to the crankcases and valves are Firebolt-specific. Higher-flow cylinder heads are new, and NASCAR-inspired valve-train trickery fends off float up to the 7500-rpm redline.  The transmission, primary drive and clutch come from the Buell parts bins.  The Buell has some interesting features--Cast aluminum-spar frame is also the gas tank, carrying 3.7 gallons of unleaded in its specially sealed interior. All 3.5 quarts of engine oil live in a Brembo-cast one-piece aluminum swingarm. A single 375mm rotor bolts directly to the front rim instead of the hub.  What looks like the fuel tank is the air box cover. Instrumentation--featuring an LCD clock, two trip meters and mileage on reserve--is complete and well placed.   It has been shown both with, and without the seat cover, or cowl. It fits very well over the passenger seat. It does come with it.   Firebolt is a nimble, serviceable urban tool that is a blast to ride!!!   This one did come to us with a "Salvage" or "Rebuilt" title.   it runs, and rides just as it should. it has been fully serviced in our shop. Looking for a fun bike to ride, check out the Buell Firebolt!!!
