Keep dreaming if you think you’ll be able to get your hands on this custom built Buell bike.

This beauty of a motorcycle, called the X1, sports a 1200cc engine, which apparently was originally destined for Harley’s Sportster Range.  The team added custom cylinder heads with over sized valves, which is further complemented by heavy port work.  The result?  95 break horsepower, which, according to Bikeexif is a 60% increase over the contemporary Sportster.  The engine is held inside a a Sportster frame, though the front end of the bike is all sportbike thanks to a  a Honda VTR 1000 RC51 SP2.  There is also a a Honda CB1100SF X11 swingarm and Öhlins shocks in the back, but that’s it in terms of stock components; everything else is custom built.
