Since Buell launched the XB model in 2003 we builded several custombikes based on these fuelframers. Many parts we developed, the most of them are still in production at least as copys. After we sold the Hillbilly-Motors business it was in a way sure that we earlier or later needed to continue in another direction and it was clear for me that I will continue with Buell Motorsport but will not build another XB custombike or develop any new parts. This chapter was for us written and closed.
Today, 3 years later the Buell aftermarket scene is a poor reflex of the past. Most of the existing companys selling the same parts, if somebody of the industry invent a new part, everybody go for it, but there are not many who push the things forward and come out with some own new parts.
After so many years involved with these bikes and style in the end we couldn´t resist. NCCR present the “Bad to the Bones” Hotrod Concept Bike.
The idea of this bike was again, 6 years after the Hellbender, to push the XB style to the limit without changing the design totally.
The in aluminium new casted frontparts lowering the Cockpit, like on a topchop 30mm and the new casted tailsection, optional with integrated indicators, shortening the bike in the good old classic S1 style. A new Aluminium tailinsert integrate a nightglow LED taillight.
So the Bad to the Bones concept combinates the cool oldschool style with modern technology. Like the brandnew fat LSL Dragbar (ready to deliver from 6/2009), what use the state of the art 28,5mm diameter clampsize in combination with the black LSL Buell conversionrisers.
LSL is also the supplier of these fine black footpegplates who offer an very open look through the bike. LSL as an german topquality supplier offering a outstanding price/quality relation. All parts are TÜV approved for your bike. Footpegs and the 6 x adjustable Brake- and Clutchlver coming in different colors. More about that you find in our webshop.
Additional parts like different seats, including the good old Hellbender style, an new frontfender with integrated airscoop, the engincoverkit “Skully” what include also a oilfillercap in skulldesign and some more parts in the authentic Hotrodsytyle completing the design. Explore our Photogalleries and watch our new video to see more.
It wouldn´t be us if we came back without a new FAST System and a new exhaust.
FAST II is a allnew system transfering the original Hotrodstyle to your Buell XB. In combination with an open or translucent tankcover your bike get an outstanding fresh look. The new constructed airhorn give the motor the additional air it need.
After beeing involved in so many exhaustsystems for the Buell XB over the years we were far away from beeing keen to develop another system. But this bike was sreaming for something special, so we ask HPE if they are interested to do something. They give an general ok, if we build the prototype to proof the reaction on the market.
So, here it is how it could look, fresh, dominant and of course in an friendly deep black. So give us your feedbacks and we will see if it will come.
