Buell Motorcycles got the jump on its foreign rivals unveiling its 2009 superbikes, with the American company unveiling the new Buell 1125CR.

If you want the sweet and condensed version of what the new 1125CR is, look no further than Buell chairman and chief technical officer, Eric Buell, who says of the new 2009 design:

“Part superbike and part streetfighter, the 1125CR is my vision of a 21st century cafe racer. It’s got Clubman-style bars and a flyscreen instead of a fairing. Then we geared it down to optimize acceleration. With a class-leading Weight: -to-horsepower ratio, the 1125CR takes streetfighter performance to a new level.”

The new machine incorporates the same liquid-cooled 1125cc Buell Helicon V-Twin powering its superbike kin – the 1125R. Internally, however, the Engine: (in both machines) has been tweaked for ’09 with “targeted fuel injectors, relocated O2 sensors and updated Engine: spark and fuel maps.”

Buell claims the Engine: mods improve sub-6000rpm performance, with better throttle response, fuel economy and heat management. (The new spark and fuel mapping will be available for 2008 1125Rs.)

As a Buell, the 1125CR features all the usual Buell-esque Engine: ering i.e. the underslung muffler, fuel-in-Frame: chassis (5.3 gallons in the Buell Intuitive Response Chassis), and the ZTL2 (Zero Torsional Load) Front Brakes: . The new Buell also features fully-adjustable Showa components, a 47mm fork and rear shock absorber.

From a visual standpoint, the CR is easier on the eyes than its R sibling. With a pared down front end from the windscreen and narrower headlamp pod, the CR looks sleeker. Available in the same black scheme as the R, the CR looks quite fetching in red.
