The new Buell Ulysses® Police XB12XP offers government agencies and private security firms a quick and very nimble “special duty” patrol vehicle that is capable of travel over a variety of terrain, from open highways to city streets to unpaved back-country roads.

Based on the versatile Buell Ulysses adventure sportbike, the Ulysses Police features long-travel suspension, generous ground clearance and aggressive tires that allow it to tackle roads too rough or narrow for confident travel in an automobile or on a traditional police motorcycle. On smooth pavement, the Ulysses Police is an agile sport motorcycle and can also accommodate a passenger.

The Ulysses Police is powered by an air/oil/fan-cooled, fuel-injected Buell Thunderstorm 1203cc V-Twin engine that delivers 103 peak horsepower. This engine’s broad powerband and abundant torque gives the Ulysses the ability to proceed at lower speeds over uneven or unpaved roads with less gear shifting, and to deliver instant bursts of acceleration. The Ulysses Police has an EPA fuel mileage rating of 51 mpg urban/64 mpg highway. A Goodyear Hibrex final drive belt with Flexten Plus technology is durable and never needs adjustment or lubrication.

    By the way . . . don’t miss the results of the tactical testing of the most recent crop of vehicles.

    “While being able to brake and accelerate are important, how the machinery handles its environment with speed and maneuverability combined can have the most effect on the driver’s safety. Vehicle dynamics averaged the lap times of five laps from four drivers — each driver drove each vehicle once. The Dodge Charger 5.7 had best overall average lap time of 1:37.08 seconds.

    However, the newest vehicle on Grattan concrete, the Buell Ulysses XB12XP, earned a 5:36.55-second overall average — almost a full 13 seconds over the 2008 motorcycle’s best overall average”

    It is quite similar to the BMW. The Buell handles better, has better braking and is about $5,000 less expensive.

    I have test ridden for both BMW NA and Buell and have found both very competent vehicles.

    This motorcycle looks strikingly similar to a BMW 1200 GS. Maybe we should call it a Cheap Imitation or if you can’t beat-em then
    copy-em. …….BMW Motorcycles, often Imitated BUT NEVER DUPLICATED.

    I am quite a harley enthusiast and have owned many buells. This new police model is awesome. The handling is awesome, you can carve up a corner like a knive through hot butter. I can see agencies adding them to their fleet as soon as possible.
