Buell Motorcycles, founded in Wisconsin in 1983 by ex-Harley-Davidson engineer Erik Buell and later acquired by Harley, was discontinued in 2009.
Needless to say, f
ans of the much-loved machines were not happy when Harley pulled the plug.
Now, however, the company might have lined up new financing to relaunch under the Erik Buell Racing name, the track-only iteration of the brand born when Buell bit the dust.
The plan would be to relaunch with more affordable versions of EBR’s $40,000 1190RS and other machines that will essentially mirror the Buell lineup before it was killed off.
We say bring it on…
