The Buell Blast was initially released in 2000s. It is an entry-level motorcycle with an estimated top speed of around 130 mph. This bike has been in development for around five years, and the company Buell has made its last design change before discontinuing the bike. This article will review the Buell Blast.
The body of the bike is made of steel but has plastics that cover all the other moving parts. The bike comes with a seat height of 30.5 inches and a fuel capacity of 3.7 gallons. The factory has an air-cooled Vtwin engine that produces around 28bhp and a 0-60 time of about 4 seconds.
The bike runs on an air-cooled single-cylinder 120º Vtwin, with two valves per cylinder and four carburetors. The engine has also been designed to save fuel but remains powerful enough to produce around 28bhp. There is also an ignition timing of approximately 30 degrees in the bike.
The bike’s transmission is a 5-speed sequential manual one with a chain drive. The gear ratio makes it easy to shift the gears without using excessive force, but there are no synchromesh gears to shift seamlessly.
The bike comes from the factory with two front disc brakes and a single rear disc brake, all of which have been designed to be powerful enough while being smooth. ABS is also available as an option and will improve braking considerably. Unfortunately, the brake levers can only be operated by the rider’s right-hand finger, which reduces maneuverability even though it improves control on tight bends.
Overall the Buell Blast is an excellent sportbike with a great engine and good handling and drivability. The only problem is that there is no suspension to help absorb bumps in the road, but it still handles most of them well. Overall this is among the best sports bikes in the market, and I would highly recommend it to any buyer.
