Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog review

The BT1100 Bulldog is an easy-handling motorcycle advised for leisure riders who are attractive for a well-specified apparatus with an alone style.The Bulldog is a rather curious motorcycle, with a somewhat confused identity. Styled like a naked, aggressive musclebike, which looks like it could take on Ducati's Monster or Buell's X-l, the Bulldog actually offers rather mediocre performance. Its exposed V-twin engine is borrowed from the XVI100 Drag Star, and offers just 48kW (65bhp). Chassis-wise, a tasteful steel-tube perimeter frame snakes around the top of the engine, Rl-type front brakes are fitted, and the hunched fuel tank makes the Italian-styled Bulldog look like a short, taut machine. It's attractive too, with a neat flyscreen and high-quality detail finish. But again, the performance is more akin to a cruiser than an aggressive musclebike.

The big problem with the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog is brisk cornering. It simply can’t do a big lean to the right – the header pipe touches down, chamfers briefly, then lifts the front wheel and you’re on your arse. And it feels bum-heavy, too, like you’ve got a washing machine for a pillion. No – ride the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog like a cruiser or slow muscle bike and it’s fine, push it hard and it’s horrid. The ex-R1 superbike brakes are predictably good, the lazy bones ex-cruiser gearbox less so. In its defence, the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog is very comfortable.
