Buell lives

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

"Yes, just 18 months after H-D surgically removed the Buell brand, Erik Buell Racing (EBR) is offering a street-legal motorcycle. Dubbed the 1190RS, it’s heavily based on the 1190RR racebike that has already been campaigned for a season on European tracks. That bike, in turn, is (sort of) based on the Buell Barracuda....

we know the bike should be well under 400 pounds full of gas (one available option is a ballast kit to make sure the bike is legal for the AMA Pro Superbike Championship) and probably makes about 160-180 horsepower at the back wheel, thanks to generous doses of expensive race-spec parts in the 72-degree Rotax V-Twin. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it won’t be cheap — the 1190RR goes for $44,900, and the 1190RS has the additional street equipment needed for 49-state legality (Buell said the bike meets DOT and EPA regulations, thanks to an un-Buell-like side-mount exhaust with dual catalyzers, but no word about California) plus carbon-fiber bodywork"
