Does the classic rumble of V-Twin appeal to you, but find full-dresser's not your style? Buy a Buell. Now. There will be no more, and stocks are dwindling. Despite that, they're not emptying the tank fast enough for Harley Davidson. With the very last Buell ever produced now taking up residence at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum – an unfortunate fate for something that's so glorious to actually use – it's fire-sale time on the 1,300 or so new Buells left. To froth sales, Harley has set up a bike finder to put you on the two-wheeler of your dreams and get your money in its pocket.

Further sweetening the pot are aggressive incentives from H-D to dealers, meaning you're not likely to get a bad deal. Unless you're a chump.

      Wish I could live in the USA now and get one of these. Here in Brasil they are still selling Buells too, but the price, well, won't even mention it.

      "...you're not likely to get a bad deal. Unless you're a chump. " I lol'd.

      Using the bike finder, I found there's still some 07 and 08 models out there. And apparently the TT models were not very loved. Those are likely to be some really good deals.

      Its an unfortunate fate for Buell. But for the last one to go to the Barber's museum is definitely an honor! That bike will be on the track at times running hard, as are most of the cars and bikes in the museum. There is a paddock that goes right up to the backstretch of the Barber's racetrack where Indy car will be this May!

      In my work I have ridden pretty much every Buell that's hit the pavement. Easily the most overrated machines out there, and no make even in its comparatively short lifespan has had more serious recalls. So much is wrapped in to this buy American ethos that folks ignore the shortcomings. They were always more marketing than motorcycle, and even the DMG letting them cheat their way to a championship didn't save them. Good riddance is right.

      It's a shame to see the only american sportsbike producer go. I liked their distinctive looks and they weren't to bad to ride.

      I like the looks of the City, I was thinking of getting one. But the A$$hat dealer wouldn't let me test ride it (a $5k used one) even though I was there on my Aprilia Factory. I wound up with a Ducati Monster S4 for just a little more money and love it to death.

      Buell. You either love them or hate them. Kind of like Moto Guzzi, BMW (before they sold out to the I4 crowd :) ) and any other bike that does not follow the norm.

      I love my '07 XB9R and all its faults. Due to the chassis dynamics the set-up is very critical, and the engine does not allow a simple point and shoot riding style as there is not a surplus of HP to make up for poor corner technique.

      Buell is not Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and on and on. Thank G-d for that.

      The Bike Finder is inaccurate, numbers aren't being reported correctly. I bought my 1125CR about a month ago and the Bike Finder showed bikes at dealers when there weren't any.

      Really wish I could swing getting one of the XB12SS' right now. It's the only bike I considered replacing my '01 Fz1 with.

      Dan is reporting on motorcycles rather than Jeremy? Well I guess it is supposed to be a blue moon tonight...
