In an apparent humorous implication to the fact that the Blast model will no longer be in the Buell model lineup, the official Buell website has a section dedicated to the “2010 Buell Blast” that shows the bike in a crushed form, along with numerous photos and a couple of videos of company founder and chief technical officer Erik Buell explaining his reasoning behind the Blast’s “new look” and operating a crusher on one of the Blast motorcycles.

Thank God Buell finally put his head on straight and made something useful out of the Blast.  I bought one for my wife in 04, and we had problems with it from day one.  I finally sold it this year, and have made that day a holiday in our household.  I have honestly never seen a bigger piece of garbage that was labeled a "motorcycle".  I hate to say it, but that bike has jaded me to the Buell brand as well as Hardly-Ableson.  I will never, ever, buy either one of those brands again and tell everyone I know not to give them business.  I know I'm ranting, but it's a sad day when a 29 year old honda CB750 ($300) will start up without a problem, but a 5 year old Buell ($5000) won't - not to mention that it never ran right from the showroom floor.
