What's the difference? Some thoughtful selections from the Buell accessories catalog grace the latter, such as a lockable top box and hard bags, tall windscreen and heated handgrips. Gone is the motocross-style front fender, replaced by a streetbike-style unit that hugs the front tire. Perhaps most significantly, however, the suspension has been re-calibrated for street use and lowered by 1.5 inches. The fork is completely new, with smaller-diameter tubes. The shorter-travel suspension affected wheelbase, trail and ground clearance, but most normal-sized riders will appreciate the 1.1-inch reduction in seat height. Freed from the need to survive off-road shenanigans, the cast-aluminum wheels are each nearly a pound lighter and shod with Pirelli Diablo Strada sport-touring tires. But while unsprung weight is reduced, the bike itself gained 40 pounds, much of which is the luggage. Fortunately, it's removable.
