Buell XB9SX City X Overview
The Buell XB9SX is an old-school but high-tech v-twin bike which looks great and sounds mean! Its simple design makes a winning hit with bikers. Many riders have also commented on the handling of this bike, saying it is a dream to ride. If you love bikes, you have to at least try a ride on the Buell XB9SX.
Everything on this bike has been well-thought-out. It sits tight and low; the exhaust is under the engine. The fuel is also in the frame and the oil is in the swingarm. The Pirelli Scorpion Sync grip well enough – but many riders may like to switch these to some standard sports tyres as this seems to make a little more sense.
The engine itself isn’t very top end, which is a shame – and it isn’t so good for long stretches of straight road. It’s handy when nipping around town though, as it makes around 84bhp and pulls hard from very low revs.
You may find parts hard to find, as Buell have closed down now, but Harley offer parts back-up. However, many owners find this bike reliable, so hopefully you won’t need this service.
You can probably pick up this bike for a decent price, because dealers are trying to shift their remaining stock.

Lightweight, corners beautifully, nippy and fantastic in London traffic. A bit of a skippy pig on motorways at high speed
Vibes at high speed are a pain, really not a long hail motorway bike
