Buell Motorcycles

Founded in 1983 by University of Pittsburgh Engineering graduate, former Harley-Davidson engineer and ex-AMA Superbike and F1 racer, Erik Buell.

Where?  Buell custom motorcycles were produced in East Troy, Wisconsin, firstly as an independent manufacturer and then, from 2003, under the stewardship of Harley-Davidson, an obvious partner given Erik’s personal history and the company’s exploitation of H-D’s XR1000 Sportster engines. Hard hit by the financial crisis Harley closed this famous custom motorcycles builders Buell in 2009 but not before Erik had gifted the world such wicked custom cycles as the inaugural two-stroke Barton engine Buell RW750 and successor Road Warrior, 1987s XR1000 RR100 Battle Twin. Other triumphs followed before Harley brought the shutters down, such as the RS120, the first street bike to boast inverted front forks. Immediately following closure Erik launched Erik Buell Racing, producing the Buell 1125R sportsbike and later the bored-out 1190RS and successor 1190SX. Sadly though EBR too fell in receivership in April 2015.

What? Sportsbikes, Superbikes.
