Only the most avid enthusiasts are familiar with Buell and Erik Buell Not only did Erik Buell motorcycles, but he was also “a pioneer of race motorcycle technology” founder of Buell Motorcycles and Buell Racing.

Here’s a more about Erik racing history from his page :

After his moped, jumped right up to a 74ci Harley-Davidson. To quote: “To be exact, it was a ’57 in a ’52 frame with KHK front Red metal flake paint and crazy two-piece ape hanger which would come and swing back and forth.

I’d wads of steel wool the mufflers to quiet it down for the but when I was really hauling, it shoot these glowing of flame out the back. Man, cool stuff when a kid!”

Buell raced motocross becoming interested in road in his early 20s. He became an part-time road racer and did his astride a Ducati in the AMA ‘Superbike’ and a Yamaha TZ750 in ‘Formula despite the aging race at Yamaha.

During this Buell was employed as a motorcycle during the day and engineering student night classes at the University of

After receiving his degree in in 1979, Buell landed a job at after he flew himself to WI to get an interview and “beat my way in the door,” as put it. While at Harley, he was involved concept motorcycles, Porsche-designed V-four program, and was responsible for stability and refinements to the chassis of the FXR series of cruisers, noted for rubber-mounted engines.

While for Harley-Davidson, Buell’s road hobby was slowed. Additionally, as went through some times in the early 1980s, he feel right racing a or Italian motorcycle.

But Buell is more well-known for his work and relenting passion to the best:

He created his first (the RW750) through the and re-engineering of a Barton engine

In he started selling his first the Buell Motor Company

He developed sportbikes using Davidson motors starting with the the RR1200 and then with the

In 1990 he renamed his company the Motorcycle Company” and Harley invested 51 percent interest they eventualls stopped Buell motorcycles on October 30,

Which brings us to the near when Erik Buell Erik Buell Racing in 2009 and introduced the sportbike to the 1190RS.

They only to make 100 of these 389 lb. 175hp and it looks like the motorcycle is impressed.  Here’s an excerpt an article about the 1190RS on :

Which brings us to a new bit of magical Erik Buell’s EBR 1190RS. riding it for about 50 laps at America, during a test that had originally been for EBR racer Geoff May alone, I was speechless. But May, who was trying the machine for the first time, “This thing is too good to be a he said as he pulled his helmet off his first laps on an EBR 1190 a headlight, turnsignals and taillight. faster than my 1125RR.”

He wasn’t kidding. The completely EBR 1190RS, serial number first production version—in the Edition, weighed just 384 at the curb, full of everything fuel. With the optional muffler and race ECU, the way it at Road America, it weighed 369 pounds with a dry tank, or 397 with fuel brimming.

And it as much or more power horsepower) than the 1125cc May had been racing and placing in the top ten in AMA and with which he even led the 2010 Barber SuperBike Meanwhile, the new skinny fairing a substantial aerodynamic improvement more bulbous fairings the Buell era. The equation was similar power with torque, similar weight as the racing bike and significantly aerodynamics.

No wonder the 1190RS in 1 trim (muffler, ECU) was faster than its pure predecessor.

All-new “hubless” cast-magnesium latest example of Buell’s  radical innovation-contribute to that weight loss. “During  FEA element analysis] the hub is always it never lights up,” explains. “The only the hub is there is for manufacturing ease. wheels are extremely hard to but they are the lightest in the world. front weighs just 5.5 The latest-and much improved-version of rim-mounted Zero Torsional (ZTL) front brake reduces unsprung  weight, almost 10 lbs. compared to the dual-disc setup, Buell 

Suspension is from Ohlins, to EBR’s specifications at the Ohlins  USA shop in Hendersonville, North The fork uses the same adjustable 30mm cartridges as racebike, and the TTX shock is valved sprung specifically for the 1190RS. The drive belt is gone,  by a race-ready chain final that eases gearing

A  compensated front sprocket the need for a cush drive on the wheel, further reducing weight. Buell also the stock Rotax  vacuum-activated clutch, replacing it with Racing Technology’s  fantastic, mechanical slipper.

The individual are the best money can buy, but the designed  1190RS is even than the sum of its parts. Exceptional centralization, revised chassis and radically reduced unsprung let the bike handle unlike any we’ve ridden before. at any  speed, it’s responsive and …-nuts neutral under very  aggressive exact opposite of the heavy-steering, 1125R.

Blade-sharp reflexes mean you can tighten your line, in the  fastest corners, the bike to carve through America’s Carousel and  Bottoms on unimaginable trajectories.

We go on and keep finding positive about the 1190RS, but you get our point.

You may be yourself – “How much for all awesomeness on two wheels?”  If you guessed within the Panigale range of you would be wrong.  According to this bike comes in at a price tag of $39,999.

Given the we would get the all carbon-fiber upgrade for an $4k.

We would do the carbon upgrade for sure. EBR 1190RS from http://www.erikbuellracing.com/motorcycles/1190rs/.

But seriously, you were a trained AMA superbike would you even be able to use half of the capabilities of this if you owned it?

I know I wouldn’t.

It would just sit in my garage and I would stories about how there only 100 of these in existence and it kick the pants off of anything out there.
