The Buell 'race only' 1125 RR

Buell has a new race only version of the 1125, dubbed the 1125RR this one is tricked out with some high tech stuff (details below). It's been approved for use in the AMA American Superbike Class and available only to licenced racers.

Price tag $39,995

If you're not keen on the fairing for the street going 1125R, you might be interested in the full fairing from the 1125RR; the gape mouth air intakes from the 1125R don't seem as noticable on the RR fairing. We've only seen side shots but it looks pretty nice. It's reportedly available from Buell for $1499 USD, Buell part # M2000B.08AZ

Buell press release:

BUELL INTRODUCES 1125RR RACING MOTORCYCLE

Race-Use Only Model Aimed at AMA American Superbike Class

EAST TROY, Wis. – Buell Motorcycle Company today introduced the 1125RR, a race-use only motorcycle intended for competition in the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike class.

“The 1125RR is designed to give privateer racers a turn-key machine to compete in the American Superbike class in AMA Pro Racing. We want to build on our program that has proven so successful for privateers in the Daytona SportBike class,” said Erik Buell, Chairman and Chief Technical Officer, Buell Motorcycle Company.

The Buell 1125RR features a modified Helicon 1125cc (103mm bore x 67.5mm stroke) liquid-cooled 72-degree V-Twin engine. Power increases come from components including a larger airbox and intake manifold, revised valves and camshafts, a higher compression ratio, titanium exhaust system and other weight-reduced components.

The 1125RR chassis is the standard 1125R design with fuel-in-the-frame, plus a billet axle adjustment system and chain-drive to allow gearing changes. Suspension travel is managed by fully adjustable units, with a Showa 43mm front fork and a remote-reservoir rear shock. A ZTL2 (Zero Torsional Load) eight-piston front caliper is mated with a modified front rotor.

Buell 1125RR features:

1125cc (68.7 cid) Helicon Powertrain:
4.055 inch (103 mm) bore and 2.658 inch (67.5mm) stroke
Dual 61mm down-draft fuel-injection throttle bodies
Titanium exhaust header and mass-centralized muffler
6-Spoke cast magnesium racing wheels
Front: 3.5 inch (88.9mm) x 17 inch (431.8mm)
Rear: 6 inch (152.4mm) x 17 inch (431.8mm)
Buell ZTL2 reversed rotor front brake with eight-piston Nissin caliper
43mm Showa fully-adjustable inverted forks
Showa fully-adjustable rear shock with remote reservoir
Cast-aluminum swingarm machined with billet axle adjustment system
Center position wheelbase 55.5 inches (1410 mm)

Buell will produce a limited number of 1125RR motorcycles for sale only to licensed professional road racers who will compete in the AMA Pro Racing American Superbike class. U.S. MSRP is $39,995. Orders must be placed through the Buell Race Department and delivered through an authorized Buell motorcycle dealer.
