So, is the Buell Blast dead? I’m thinking so after watching a couple of videos on Buell’s website.
If this little one-lunged machine is a goner, this might be the most creative send-off I’ve seen since Jack in The Box blew up the clown.
Would this be anti-marketing? Not sure how one would describe the level of effort Buell’s put into shelving a a model that’s been the butt of many jokes, but also the first ride for many who have gone through the Rider’s Edge course. There’s even a huge niche of aftermarket companies who build kits for converting the Blast into something, well, uh, a little bit more bitchin’ than its natural form. Whatever. This is pure entertainment. I especially like the gallery and the specs.
Do yourself and check out the page devoted to the 2010 Blast. Nice work, Buell.
