2009 Buell Ulysses XB12XP Police unveiled

Hot Fuzz: The 103bhp Buell XB12XP Police

The American police now have a new bike to look forward to – the Buell Ulysses XB12XP - a quick and nimble patrol vehicle that can travel over a variety of terrain.

Based on the Buell Ulysses adventure sportsbike, the Ulysses Police features long-travel suspension, generous ground clearance and dual-purpose tyres that allow it to tackle rough roads. Production of the bike will begin in August this year.

The Ulysses Police comes fitted with hard-shell top and side cases, each removable and lockable. (The side cases are narrower than the standard Buell side cases, allowing for more clearance.) There’s a luggage rack with tie-down hooks, a tall windshield, heated hand grips, and handlebar deflectors. An available emergency response kit includes a siren and an LED lighting package in different color configurations of red and/or blue.

The Buell Ulysses Police is powered by an air/oil/fan-cooled, fuel-injected Buell Thunderstorm 1203cc v-twin, which makes 103 horsepower at 6,800rpm, and delivers 51mpg in the city and 64mpg on the highway. The Goodyear Hibrex belt drive is said to be durable and doesn’t need lubrication or any adjustment.

Suspension – 47mm Showa USD fork up front, and Showa monoshock at the back – is fully adjustable. The Ulysses Police carries fuel in its aluminum frame, the exhaust is located below the engine, and the bike rides on 17-inch cast-aluminium wheels, shod with Pirelli Scorpion Sync tyres. The Police-spec Buell weighs 215 kilos, fitted with the emergency lighting kit.
