New Firebolt XB12R and Lightning XB12S lead the 2004 model line-up

EAST TROY, Wis., July 15 -- Buell Motorcycle Company announced the addition of two exciting new motorcycles to its 2004 product line-up today: The Firebolt XB12R and Lightning XB12S, high-performance models powered by the new 103-hp Buell XB1200 V-Twin engine.

The Buell XB1200 engine is a 1203cc air/fan and oil-cooled V-Twin designed to produce the kind of mid-range power that excels on the street. Rated at 103 peak horsepower and 84 ft. lbs. of tire-twisting torque the new XB1200 engine is equipped with Buell InterActive Exhaust, an electronically controlled system which optimizes exhaust back-pressure to broaden the engine's torque band over a wide rpm range.

The Firebolt XB12R and Lightning XB12S join current models -- the Firebolt XB9R, Lightning XB9S and Buell Blast -- to complete the Buell 2004 line of American-made motorcycles. Also new this year, all 2004 Buell motorcycles will be covered by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty replacing the previous one-year warranty.
