The Buell Lightning Long XB12Ss has a long winded name to go with it's lengthed proportions. The Long XB12Ss is a lengthened version of Buell's unique XB12S Lightning, and will be offered alongside the original model. The new bike is designed to accomodate larger riders and give a slightly less frantic riding style.
The Lightning Long has a 10mm higher seat than its sibling, and fuel storage has been increased by 2 litres, remember Buell puts the fuel in the frame. Because of the frame size weight has gone up, only by 2 kilos though. Colour options for the XB12Ss Long are: black, blue and sunset orange (red).

See Buell's other new for 2006 bike, the XB12X Ulysses off road bike.
