A day ahead of its scheduled release, it appear that someone Bombardier Recreational Products has leaked an announcement that Buell Racing and BRP will a new motorcycle company called Motorcycles. The press release, was posted on the Buell enthusiasts Weather Bikers has now been down, perhaps by request of Buell Racing or Bombardier. But it to have come from at Bombarider, and was thankfully forwarded to us by a spotting member. This seem to confirm earlier we heard last week in the camps about a Bombardier that we dismissed as fallout the Alan Cathcart article in .

The surprise announcement couldn’t on a worse day, although it like it was actually scheduled to tomorrow to avoid April confusion. Never-the-less the press outlines the creation of a joint-venture the two companies, with a 1190cc slated for arrival late in Dubbed the Stratofortress, the bike what sounds like a new powerplant that has 1190cc’s on and uses a 60 v-twin configuration.

to the release, the Bomber Stratofortress sounds the part, making and weighing an alleged 365lbs More after the jump.

the basis for the joint-venture and Canadian facility, Bombardier Recreational PR Correspondent Avril Foujour to Asphalt Rubber that, BRP’s offer to buy Buell was rejected by Harley-Davidson, BRP began creative alternative possibilities Erik Buell himself. Harley-Davidson refused to sell the brand and infrastructure, we realized the essence of the Buell legacy was the man the machine, Erik Buell

Unfortunately for BRP, part of Buell’s severance from included a non-compete clause barred Buell from motorcycles. “Erik’s hands are by Harley-Davidson and their lawyers, as Buell cannot create motorcycles by law,” Foujour “However the contract provision is under Canadian law, and in here in the French-Canadian provence of Both jurisdictions have more favorable provisions non-compete clauses, which allowed us to achieve the announcement we planning on releasing tomorrow.”

continued telling us that “by Erik Buell Racing across the northern border of the States and into Quebec, companies effectively sidestep road block put in place by Additionally since this is by BRP and Erik Buell Racing, himself is not necessarily making any as BRP will be undertaking a large of the engineering and production for Bomber an important technicality based on the set out in Buell’s contract with

BRP would not confirm the rumor, but is some belief that specifically added the non-compete to Buell’s severance contract in to block him from colluding BRP. Despite their efforts, to us this sounds some crafty lawyering by Erik Buell and BRP.

Buell’s non-compete clause is to expire in just under 18 which could see the newly Bomber Motorcycles land on American soil, once reviving the dream for an American bike. In the meantime, we’ll have to wait for the spy shots of the to come zooming down the heavens. More as we get it.
