Exclamation 2010 Buell Blast ?

I kid you not ! But the following pic is a real Ad, that Buell is posting in Major Motorcycle Magazines...


FYI- July 25 at the dealer show, the NEW 2010 models will be unveiled.

I've always kinda like them... I could ride a stock one, I would look like a circus clown on top of it. But, I did always want to use the motor for a thumper chopper/bobber...

It's slightly disappointing that they aren't going to replace it with another bike

Excellent ad! Exactly what we need to here from Buell.
But, I was just thinking the other day, whatever happened to that motor? Would it not work in some entry level form Harley should they go back to past thinking when they were peddling really entry level affordable bikes? Granted they still probably wouldn't sell since (in my area) I don't see anybody buying small displacement bikes anyway, but it just crossed my mind.

side note: I do think my DRZ4000SM is the ultimate commuter bike though.

They have a video clip from Erik on the website. It seems 09 was the last for the Blast. Or they are laying the ground work for the replacement.

Yup... seems that Eric grew tired of the bike.
