Raging Buell: The supercharged Lazareth XB12S custom

Lazareth's supercharged Buell XB12S

The stock bike has about 100bhp, so with the supercharger (taken from a Mini Cooper S), the Laz should have at least 125 horses!

Earlier this year, we had posted pics of the very cool Lazareth Dokujya, fitted with a supercharged Honda VTR1000 engine, single-sided swingarm and single-sided front fork. Now, Lazareth are ready with their next special – the supercharged Buell XB12S, which was shown at the recent Paris Bike Show.

While the chassis remains stock, the Buell XB12S’s 100bhp v-twin has been supercharged, so now it probably makes around 125bhp. The bike also gets a single-sided swingarm and single-sided front fork with adjustable steering head angle, so riders can tune handling characteristics to suit their individual riding style. Lazareth are also, reportedly, looking at experimenting with electronic suspension adjustment systems in the near future.

amazing looking bike! I don't care for harleys or buells but this seems to be something which I'd want to ride at least once... just looking at that supercharger belt makes me want to take it for a sping :)

very cool indeed. but what's the fixation with big, heavy superchargers? why don't they build some turbo bikes also? I'd love to see a turbo/NOS GSX-R1000 with a single-side swingarm and some funky, minimalist bodywork!

what about reliability and usability? once you've bloted on that supercharger and those fancy suspension bits, can you actually use these bikes on the street without having to visit a workshop every day?
