the buell is made by buell...sorry the lead designer left harley and started buell, the harley bought them out but still let him do his thing...the advantage of the buell is that it no longer uses an offset crankshaft, its balanced...thus it runs more efficient and cooler than the standard harley motor...you can idle them at a light for quite some time...not having to worry about the temp
not to mention the fact that i believe the Buell firebolt XB9R and 12R are i believe still among the best handling bikes on the market...they are a marvel, dont get the respect they deserve
my vote is for buell, thats def going to be my next bike after driving one...beats the hell out of any other bike i have riddin in the turns...
another option is the SV650s if you wanna go more the sportyish route...or just the SV650...
