Review by: Mike Samarzja
Just browsing through images and noticed the Buell S2 Thunderbolt article is inaccurate. The photo is of an S3 Thunderbolt. The HP for the S2 was 76 not 101. It did not have the Thunderstorm heads or the helmholtz resonator airbox used to produce 101 HP. I know this because it was the first bike I designed at Buell. I worked as either the only industrial designer or the manager of the ID dept. from 1991 until 2008 and designed bikes from S2 through 1125CR.


The Buell S2 Thunderbolt was built on the Buell RS1200 frame

A short article on Buell's radical engineering.
