Buell's profilation of this bike Just as a jagged stretch of country or canyon road offers one kind of challenge, a crowded city environment offers another. This urban streetfighter comes fully equipped to handle whatever the big city throws your way, with standard wind deflectors, frame pucks, headlamp grille, and the unique X-Guard to protect the airbox cover from your tank bag.
