Buell is Back With a Street-Legal Superbike

Yes, 18 months after H-D surgically the Buell brand, Erik Racing (EBR)  is offering a motorcycle. Dubbed the 1190RS, heavily based on the 1190RR that has already been for a season on European tracks. bike, in turn, is (sort of) on the Buell Barracuda that was to be to the public in the Spring of 2010.

And bike was based on the 1125R, and nothing wrong with either.

We don’t have a whole lot of on the RS as of the posting of this story. But at photos, reading spec of the 1190RR and reading interviews E.B. we know the bike be well under 400 pounds of gas (one available option is a kit to make sure the bike is for the AMA Pro Superbike Championship) and probably about 160-180 horsepower at the wheel, thanks to generous of expensive race-spec parts in the Rotax V-Twin. Pricing been announced, but it won’t be — the 1190RR goes for $44,900, and the has the additional street equipment for 49-state legality (Buell the bike meets DOT and EPA regulations, to an un-Buell-like side-mount exhaust dual catalyzers, but no word California) plus carbon-fiber

Other important differences the 1125R and Barracuda are indents on the (which, like other frames holds the oil and fuel) to the use of clip-ons, a bigger cut-out in the stock to allow a bigger and the use of real racing hardware the rearsets, not the weird, chunky Buells sported when the was under the H-D aegis.

Again, it won’t be cheap; Erik isn’t sure he can one. “I was just telling the the other day, ‘I’ve got to one of these,’ but I don’t have any My money’s all tied up in the business … got to sell my car and drive a Pinto or I’ve got to have it.”

True, this is probably not a I could personally ever own (I if Erik Buell can’t buy one …) but I’d that after the RS, a lower-spec, version built around the 1125R will emerge. And an even lower -priced like the one Gruner Engineering the world last year hit the market. All the bikes would be (like Bimota or Ducati at the Erik Buell Racing (just a block away the site of the liquidated Buell in East Troy, Wisconsin) in quantities— Cycle World Steve Anderson reports 100 1190RSs will be built in components that are mostly from suppliers Buell has for years.

In fact, thanks to advances in design, communications and development, is no reason a small-volume manufacturer EBR can’t compete with bigger players. Short kind of sponsorship deal EBR did actually sign a three-year with Amsoil) or other streams he probably won’t get selling small numbers of motorcycles, but he can at least pursue his of building the best American Sounds good to us.
