My personal experience riding the 1125CR was largely positive. I never quite embraced the bike's aesthetics, though some angles were less offensive than others. But the important stuff-engine, suspension, handling and reliability-were all on par with other large-displacement sport-twins. The bike blasted out of turns with authority, kicked ass in the corners and was ergonomically agreeable. I feel lucky to have spent so much time on the "last" Buell. With the introduction and evolution of the Rotax 1125 motor, Buell had undoubtedly arrived as a manufacturer of high-performance sportbikes. I, for one, would like to have seen-and ridden-future offerings from this most unique American motorcycle company.
