CG stands for center of gravity, and the Lightning XB12Scg keeps it low with a reshaped seat and lowered front and rear suspension that reduces the seat height to 28.6 inches. It's all accomplished with no compromise to handling or performance.

What's New on Lightning for 2008
Updates to both the 1203 Thunderstorm V-Twin and 984 Thunderstorm V-Twin engine enhance performance and reduce maintenance cost (see separate Thunderstorm release for details).

Each Lightning model is pre-wired for installation of accessory heated hand grips, with 18 peak watts per side and High and Low heat settings.

The instrument panel styling is refreshed and the tachometer reflects the new 7100-rpm redline on models equipped with the 1203 Thunderstorm engine.

A commemorative Buell 25th Anniversary graphic with Erik Buell's signature is placed on the handlebar clamp.

Cosmetic frame protectors help reduce damage to the frame in case of a tip-over incident.
