You might recall that last October Harley-Davidson announced the discontinue of the Buell Motorcycle brand. On October 30, 2009 just two weeks after the announcement the last street-use Buell rolled off the line. In November Eric Buell established EBR in East Troy WI., which supplied race-use-only parts for Buell motorcycles and performed race prep services for engines and motorcycles. H-D gave EBR license to build and sell race-only motorcycles based on the Buell 1125R.
Reportedly Erik Buell’s non-compete agreement with H-D ends February 2011. The new street legal motorcycle will be called the EBR 1190RS and speculation is the motorcycle will be based on the 1190RR race bike which uses an 1190cc V-Twin engine claiming 185HP.
The source of this information came from Erik Buell’s record label called “Rat Pack Records” and where the sale of clothing and various motorcycle swag bearing the new EBR 1190 RS logo is available. A teaser video for the new bike will be released on September 14th. Obviously this would make a lot of fans excited and looking forward to the new motorcycle.
