OK. Kanskje ikke akkurat sykkelen for smisking på små grusveier her på berget, men det må da finnes noen sanddyner eller noe ørkenlignende et eller annet sted?

PS: Legger du inn 25 dollar i håndpenger, får du til og med en skikkelig eksklusiv cap med på kjøpet! Les mer, fra Buell her:

Pressemelding fra Buell Motorcycle:

Grand Rapids, MI (March 1, 2022) – On Saturday March 5th at high noon, Buell will unveil the new Baja DR (Dune Racer) test prototype in their booth at Destination Daytona. The Buell Baja DR will be the world’s fastest production dirt bike, built right here in America.

“This is a pivotal moment for American motorcycles and really puts Buell on the map. We are on track to build the world’s fastest and solely American-built production off road bike,” said Bill Melvin, CEO of Buell Motorcycle Co. adding, “less than 1% of the world is covered with pavement, the Buell Baja DR is designed to dominate the other 99.7%. It will give riders the freedom to go anywhere in the world, faster and with more power, harnessing our 1190 engine. The Buell Baja DR is a beast, elevating the brand to even greater heights, and will bring passion back for American-built motorcycles.”

Buell’s entry into the off-road segment won’t go unnoticed by the competition. The Buell Baja DR takes its design inspiration from Buell’s success on the American Hillclimb racing circuit with two-time World Champion Logan Cipala on board. Buell has posted videos of the race prototype on their Instagram page. The 1190 flies through the air, while racing in only first gear!

The production Baja DR model specs and features are the following: 175hp liquid cooled, 72-degree V-twin engine with 101 ft-lbs of torque, trellis frame, adjustable swingarm for a 66- to 70-inch wheelbase, and industry standard 37-inch seat height with 26.75-degree rake. The Buell Baja DR will be unmatched at the top of the market for speed and performance, while clearly signaling the New Buell will not be strictly on-road any longer but going off-road too.

Reservations for production slots for the Baja DR model will go live on March 5 at 12 p.m. EST (noon) and cost just $25. Estimated retail for the model will start at $19,995 with production planned for 2023.

Learn more about what the future has to offer from Buell at Daytona Bike Week 2022 with the unveiling of the new Baja DR and SuperTouring model prototypes on Saturday March 5th. Both motorcycles will be available for customers to view March 5-13 at Destination Daytona in the booths 100 yards north of JP Cycles Superstore.
