Looks much nicer than the streetbikes they sold. Damn shame that this will never see a road legally.

185 HP? Wow, hope it has schrapnel guards. I was in Azuza on Sunday getting gas on the way home from Palm Desert, and a later model Buell with the HD motor pulled in to tank up. I thought to myself "Man , what a pretty motorcycle..." Wonder why they never took off sales wise? Buell had the looks, the weight, the handling and for folks like me, more than enough power, with zero maintenance to top it off.

Sad. Now HD is wasting energy on Hyosung knock-off ATK pigs. Real oogly bikes. Who's running the shop at HD? Crazed flying monkeys with blood shooting out thier a$$es?

Oh, ye of little faith! The new Buell will be the 1190RS, S as in "Street". They are already selling t-shirts on the Rat Pak Records website with some hints at the new road-ready bike from Erik Buell Racing. Woot!
