Buell's liquid-cooled 1125R sportbike is also a departure from the company's air-cooled, Harley-powered roots, however the 2008 Buell Ulysses XB12XT journey sport tourer capitalizes on the success of the XB12X by shifting the focus of the dirt-ready platform to long distance sport-touring.

Starting at $12,995, the Buell XB12XT includes 3 saddlebags, a lower seat height, and normal heated grips with built-in wind deflectors, together with sport-tuned suspension and different revisions to the XB12X platform. Included may be a 24-month, unlimited mileage warranty.

The XB12XT perpetuates Buell's practice of building quirky bikes with unique engineering. Buell's so-called "Trilogy of Tech" incorporates mass centralization, frame rigidity, and reduced unsprung weight so as to boost performance, and therefore the XB12XT's adheres to that philosophy. for example, 4.4 gallons of fuel are stored within the frame, lending it a curiously tall shape. An underslung exhaust sits directly beneath the engine so as to keep weight centralized, and oil is also stored in the swingarm for the same purpose.

The XB12XT's forged aluminum wheels are every a pound lighter than the XB12X, since they are not bolstered for off-road riding. Zero Torsional Load brakes up front feature a 375mm rotor mounted to the surface of the wheel so as to transfer braking forces to the rim, not the spokes. A 6-piston caliper provides front stopping power, and a single-piston unit activates the rear brake.
