Saw one at the Texas Mile in Oct. Don't know if he ever hit 150, but the bike sure got my attention! It looked awful small, like the XB12, etc....bummer.

I bought one last month. Took Super Demo at Independance HD and was hooked. I was riding a 2007 souped up Xb12X. This 1125 has a midrange hit that must be experienced to believe. I rode this evening and just turned 700 miles. I have already removed the useless mirrors and added stock XB turn signals to the front cowl and installed bar end mirrors. I also found a way to put xb12 handle bars on it and drop pegs to give my 6'1" frame a little more room. I must tell you, if you remove the clubman bars you must lay over the front end to keep the front end down. If I just could afford to keep my Ully I would have all the bikes I need. One for adventure touring and my new CR for strafing
the twisties from cafe to cafe. It is like a Super Hawk with RC51 handling and 50 more horses! It is crazy quick. There our bikes with more top end but at sane speeds it is a bullit. If you test ride it and you like 146HP in a 375lb package you will be toast too!!
Don't say I did not warn you,
Buellboy!!
