After last years tryout of the Buell XB9R, which sort of disappointed me, I where looking forward to try the 1200cc version (XB12R). It was way better than the 9. It has the power you expect for a feisty beast like that, which made it a really exciting ride. The handling, braking, riding position and controls are not far from that of the 9; Extreme, fun, raw and a little to expensive. But hell if you got the green and are out for a nasty city shredder, I’d give it a go.
