238 Kmh Buell on Ice
Stuntman Craig Jones and Buell combine to push an 1125Rto 238km/h – on ice!
Following up from a spectacular photoshoot from stunter Craig Jones last year, Buell sent him and an 1125R back to a frozen lake to see how fast a motorcycle would go on ice.
In temperatures of -10 celcius on the frozen Lake Dellen in Switzerland Jones put the modified Buell to the test down a path across the ice
The modified Buell 1125R was fitted with a 50hp nitous oxide boost, and 20mm spikes on the tyres.
After several trial runs, Jones hit an incredible 238km/h (148mph) on the frozen lake, separated from the icy waters beneath by a thin icy crust.
