Late in we had the pleasure of spending a week with Buell’s then new-to-market CityX Whether that’s enough really depends on what you want. Because having a rear mudguard that has holes in it may look really good but is slightly counter-productive when it comes to stopping water and road crud from getting sprayed up. It’s not Japanese and it’s never going to as reliable as a Honda The Buell XB9SX is as simple and uncluttered as its styling and the pillion seat is for ornamental use only. The build quality isn’t upto Japanese standards although I notice a lot of Japanese bikes ain’t what they used to be. Charles Atlas eat your heart out!

To save you doing this research yourself, I can tell you that two low speed offs in less than a mile, both while avoiding dozy car drivers in the snow, resulted in precisely no damage whatsoever to the CityX or to me.

Perhaps xbs9x the way that it will go on its ear at the slightest provocation, making the Buell possibly the easiest bike ever to turn.

Going to get the bike tomorrow. BikePilotApr 5, Collecting the Buell from Warr’s in King’s Road was a little like going to collect the family pet from the vet’s. As a road tester it’s a great way of getting the opinion of a whole section of people without having to ask – if the bike is worthy of comment, good or bad, it’ll get some.

Late in we had the pleasure of spending a week with Buell’s then new-to-market CityX The biggest complaint I have about the bike, other than the victory of style over sense in the rear mudguard area, is the fact that Harley Davidson insisted I gave it back. The bike is very frugal on fuel ridden sensibility even tho mine has the Buell race kit. Everybody thought it was incredibly good value for money if they were crass enough to ask a price.

Buell XB9SX Lightning

However there was one major omission that the bad weather highlighted. It’s not necessarily a pride or cost thing – it doesn’t have to be the fastest, best looking or most exclusive vehicle ever – there’s just something about some vehicles that makes people feel good. The Buell XB9SX is as simple and uncluttered as its styling and the pillion seat is db9sx ornamental use only. Sometimes, very rarely, a company comes up with a machine, normally a car or bike, that just makes the driver or rider smile.

I really like the XB9SX.

Buell Lightning CITYX XB9SX | Cycle World

February lived up to expectations in many ways, and did in fact give me at least half a dozen nice days to enjoy. Another one Attached Files: Oddly though the XB9SX comes fitted with dual-purpose Pirelli Scorpion Sync tyres — probably mostly to fit the urban scrambler styling. Now that Buell has closed down though, there are some great deals on new bikes as dealers try to shift their remaining stock.


Another major plus came from the tyres. Throwing a leg over reminded me just how small the Buell is, even in this slightly raised version. The kid needed to pay off a debt, so he was desperate. Whatever the reason, the Buell CityX is a bike that makes me smile. Whether that’s enough really depends on what you want. You’d expect to get a warts and all, no olds barred road test which would pick up lots of niggly faults and would generally give an impression of ownership. The rim mounted disc brake has a lot of initial bite and the wide motocross bars make weaving through traffic easy.

That sounds a little odd perhaps, but the character of the bike is very much that of the faithful family spaniel. It’s perfectly capable of holding its own on A and B roads out of town and isn’t outclassed on the motorway, though that’s hardly the best place for it. Armed with handlebar deflectors and a headlight grille, the CityX rider grips wide, supermotard-style handlebars while the Skyline seat offers an elevated view of traffic ahead.

It went well, stopped brilliantly, handled magnificently and made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. It’ll certainly keep up with traffic and be pretty entertaining. Or perhaps it’s the way every speed bump becomes your own personal stunt park, the Buell leaping off the top like Steve McQueen making a run for Switzerland.
