2005 Buell Blast

In a Nutshell: The Buell Blast was designed to excel in the real world, where a broad power band and plenty of mid-range power make it easy to pull away from starts, accelerate with traffic and power out of turns. The single-cylinder, air-cooled Buell Blast engine displaces a generous 492cc and makes 34 horsepower. The Blast has a 2.8-gallon fuel tank that offers a cruising range of nearly 200 miles.  Designed as a great entry level bike, it also functions exceptionally well for experienced riders who desire a smaller, lightweight bike with power and maneuverability.
