Buell 6 Speed ....Wayyyyyyyy Overdue

The Buell should have been the very first motorcycle with a six speed or even more speeds to keep the bike realllly cooking with such a low redline.

I would go with a seven speed to just one up everyone yet keep the first gear same, or near the same as now, so the result would be a bike with an ultra close gear ratio and easy to keep in the sweet spot compared to now where the rpms drop off between shifts too much.

A six or seven speed also offsets the low Buell rpm compared to say Aprilia or Ducati enable the Buell to be the best it can with the current motor.

I will put my money on this..........they make a six or seven speed Buell and I will sell my Aprilia and buy the Uly.
