P16836 2000 BUELL LIGHTING X1 Blue Streak Blue Streak
How much fun is it possible to have on two wheels? I thought I knew before I was handed the keys to the throbbing, aggressive and ear shattering X1. An up-grade from the S1 White Lighting for 2000, with new dynamic Digital Fuel Injection.
The Buell X1 Lightning is one of those bikes that many wouldn’t even consider spending money on. I couldn’t begin to tell you how many have stopped me and asked, “What’s a Buell?” A Buell is the creation of Erik Buell, a long-term employee of Harley-Davidson, who’s burning desire to construct the ultimate race bike lead him to eventually develop and manufacture an American sportbike for the street. From 1982 Harley-Davidson began supplying Buell with engines whilst keeping a watchful eye on Erik and his impressive designs. Holding 49% of the company Harley-Davidson eventually purchased an additional 49% in 1992 leaving Erik Buell retaining 2% and a long term employment contract to ensure continuity of innovation, engineering and styling.
The Buell is fast and has the styling to make Monster owners look twice, especially those around Cottesloe. The gearbox is very smooth, and complements the riding experience. That ringing you hear in your ears after a blast on the X1 is an intrusive reminder that you’re living your life to the fullest.

The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
