They were Italian Aermacchis, not Spanish.

And the Harley Hummer 125cc 2-stroke in my garage was US built on modified DKW blueprints, just like the BSA Bantam.

There's no shortage of creative energy at Buell. And plenty deep pockets at H-D. So don't sell Buell short--- this could be verrry interesting. And I really like the idea of an American dirt bike, just as much as I like the idea of an American sport bike. Buell can do it if anyone can...

Okay, Rapido two-strokes then.



They'd still be extremely modern for Harleys.

Hi there. If it's going to be a legal competitive motocross and dirt tracker, it has to be a 450cc single. So, I'm pretty sure that's what it will be. Buell has shown it can come up with good suspension. And that's what's needed to be win. Almost all the top dirtbikes, make within a couple of horsepower of each other. The big differences are in how they handle. If Buell can knock off a couple hundred pounds off a Sportster, I'll bet they can come up with some ideas, to make a light dirt bike.

Default Buell folloing BMW?

It seems that whenever BMW comes out with a new model (1200GS, HP2, G650X), Buell will follow (Ulysess, dirt bike). What's next for Buell, a 60 hp 800 lb. $25,000 tourer? Oh wait..........sorry.

I would think a sport bike, or even a dirt bike, next to all the road oriented Harley's would be a compliment, rather than a detriment. Selling them in a Suzuki dealership would probably just cut into sales for both of them, no? Of course, we're talking motorcycles here, so logic goes out the window.
