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