The original Lightning XB12S takes the Buell Street fighter to the edge. The Thunderstorm 1203 V-Twin Engine: delivers a well-rounded portion of torque, thanks to the Buell InterActive Exhaust, a valve in the dual-chamber muffler controlled by the ECM that adjusts exhaust flow according to riding conditions to optimize Engine: power. A coarse-texture seat and athletic riding position offer outstanding control. A new, stiffer swingarm and smooth-shifting transmission up the performance ante for 2006. The Lightning XB12S is offered in Midnight Black, or with a new Valencia Orange Translucid airbox cover and flyscreen with Midnight Black front fender and chin spoiler, both with high-gloss Translucent Amber wheels.
