Erik Buell Racing launches Its First New Motorcycle

It didn’t take long to Erik Buell to launch its first new first model. The 1190R is based on the Buell 1125R and 1125RR, offers increased engine displacement, with a complete kit of Superbike level components.

This model is for race only as you remember that Erik Buell is prevented by contract with Harley-davidson to build street bikes. The 1190R can be raced in many classes around the world, although not approved for AMA Superbike Class. Erik Buell Racing

    Last year at Faaker See (Austria), at the annual H-D meeting, I tested a 1125. Nice bike for the first look but full of bad surprise when riding. Vibrating, non-linear power and cheap plastics. I say, is first new model, maybe not fine tuning, but its a beginning. I hope Buell will reborn, maybe with some help from an investor. It’s strange why United States doesn’t have a sport motorcycle manufacturer until now. Can you tell me the reason?

    Always liked the innovation of Beull, But this photo looks like a Photo-shot ‘test’ shot….(body work, upper frame, tank, rear tail section) Is this what the real bike will look like or just some type of concept ? Cyril, you know ?
    Kinda looks like a CBR 1000 laid on top of a Buell motorcycle? Looking forward to seeing them on the track !

    Nelu, The US has been manufacturing sport bikes since at least 1911 when Indian won the first 3 places at the Isle of Man.

    For Lyle: I know that. My question was about modern Sport bikes, like CBR, GSX, Desmosedici, MV Agusta (btw, another H-D bad business), Daytona 675, and so on. It was MotoCzysz, but…
    For all: Also, I dont now any genuine american manufacturer of motocross, enduro or scooters. From Europe we see in US a lot of custom specialists, two big constructors (H-D and Victory) of cruisers and that’s all. No Speed, no off-road, no scooters “Made in USA”. Am I wrong?

    Is this the same bike that was sighted last November 2009

    Some time ago it was mentioned that all Harley drags was a way to win on Sunday with Harley
    Now the XR 1200 has its own class in road racing sponsored by Vance and Hines with a racing kit at $ 3.500. and spec tires to be used
    A win-win for both if it gets off the ground with six races scheduled for 2010.
    Possibly what Buell needs to do is work with Vance and Hines and race the Buell at the same venue as the XR 1200 an all Harley road race schedule. This way everyone has the same mind set. A correct Characterization ?
    If all this transpired how many Harley enthusiast would go to watch road racing ?
