The Buell 1125CR was a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 72-degree V-Twin Naked motorcycle produced by Buell between 2010 and 2011. Max torque was 81.87 ft/lbs (111.0 Nm) @ 9000 RPM. Claimed horsepower was 146.04 HP (108.9 KW) @ 9800 RPM.


Overview[edit]

For the 2009 model year, Buell introduced the 1125CR, a version of the 1125R in the cafe racer style.[2][3] This was done in response to customer feedback, which said the 1125R wasn't what was wanted, and causing Buell to shelve plans for a Streetfighter, going for a cafe racer instead.[3]


Engine[edit]

A 104.1mm bore x 104.1mm stroke result in a displacement of just 1125.0 cubic centimeters.

Drive[edit]

The bike has a 6-speed, manual transmission. Power was moderated via the slipper clutch.

Chassis[edit]

It came with a 120/70 ZR17 front tire and a 180/55 ZR17 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via single 375mm disc, 8-piston caliper, ZTL2-type in the front and a single 240mm disc, 2-piston caliper in the rear. The front suspension was a 47mm Showa upside-down fork while the rear was equipped with a Showa fully-adjustable shock absorber. The wheelbase was 54.49 inches (1384 mm) long.
