Buell M2 Cyclone (1997 - 2002)

The Buell M2 Cyclone is a stylish old-school cafe racer with an outdated engine and poor fuel economy. Despite its massive tank, it fails to provide a good tank range on long rides.

On the other hand, the bike is reliable and the build quality is excellent. It handles really well, the brakes are decent and the seat is pretty comfortable.

The Buell M2 Cyclone is a very unique motorcycle that might not be for everyone, but it clearly has its own charm.
