Erik Buell Racing

When Harley-Davidson shuttered its Motorcycle Company subsidiary in 2009, America’s greatest pioneer of the last three Erik Buell, seemed to be out of the business.

But anyone who is familiar the ever-tenacious Erik Buell that we’d again see him and his in another streetbike. It was only a of time.

Well, that became this weekend at the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis, when Mr. Buell rolled out his new streetbike.

After Harley-Davidson the Buell Motorcycle Company, it Buell from building allowing construction solely of motorcycles based on the previous bikes. That agreement has now

Buell’s vision of producing an sportbike enters a new chapter the 1190RS, a serious evolution of the racebike privately campaigned the 2010 AMA Superbike season rider Geoff May.

Buell’s RS is cloaked in fresh new now with a full fairing in a and edgy new design constructed of fiber. Its nose is now much fitted with a pair of lens headlights stacked each other similar to 999 but in a more streamlined layout.

the tailsection is skimpier than we’ve seen before, just slits of bodywork by a spidery cast-magnesium subframe in the USA.

Speaking of magnesium, the of the RS are quite special. Magnesium aren’t normally used for wheels, as the pounding from and potholes can damage the stiff and brittle metal.

But a newly casting process – ablation – has the ability to vary the properties of the depending on what’s needed and it enables complex castings in the metal can be formed in a wide of thickness. It’s proving to especially well for magnesium which can be difficult to cast to levels. Buell says new method allows a ductile rim (able to slightly deform on to retain structural integrity), the spoke and hub region can be built enough to support the motorcycle.

The expensive efforts to reduce also include the adoption of a battery, helping bring the total mass to less 400 lbs (wet but without fuel).

Gone are the awkward dual radiators that made the look fat, replaced by rads in front of the engine an oil cooler near the belly

Buell continues his predilection for a front brake setup, now a slightly different Nissin caliper augmented by a dual-inlet duct routing cool air to shed heat. It’s EBR has incorporated on its racebike since through last season.

Selecting appropriate dealers is the step for EBR. Buell he doesn’t care what a prospective dealer currently but he insists on them being about sportbikes. Initially, the EBR 1190RSs will be sold Buell’s operations in East Wisconsin, located in a corner of former factory.

Buell is well known for his of endless dedication and hard but he’s again taken it to level. “I’m working now than I’ve ever he told us. “I’m actually it in a strange, manic sense.”

“There are lots of he says about what be next, including the possibility of new and fresh bike designs.
