The Buell® Blast was a cute little motorcycle. It just never made much of a sportbike. But, as luck would have it, it makes a killer ottoman. Or end table. Or art piece. Through an innovative process known as crushing, we’ve turned a limited number of Blasts into colorful metal cubes, each numbered and signed by Erik Buell himself. Hey, there’s no denying the Blast’s aforementioned cuteness. But there’s nothing cute about racing or riding a sportbike the way it was meant to be ridden.
This 492cc air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder is equipped with 34 horses. The better thing about this thumper is the wide range of powerband which suits city riders and powerband just shoots north in the highway.
The 10 litre tank is small for long touring but best suited for any other purpose and of course this bike is not meant for long tours, nonetheless, it will happily see you go 250 kilometers with a full tank. A high quality instrument panel displaying Electronic speedometer with LED, odometer and tripmeter; built-in LED, indicator lamps for low oil pressure, high beam, turn signals, neutral. Even minor features are taken care of like the shift pedal which are fully adjustable that enables personalized fit and has flexible turn signals to resist damage and there is a good amount of underseat storage space. The Blast is built to be durable, with tough Surlyn composite body panels. The color is molded into the Surlyn, so light scratches can be buffed out.
