Buell motorcycles include the 1125R sportbike, the 1125CR café racer, the Lightning family of streetfighters including the XB9Scg and XB9SX CityX, and the Ulysses line of sport touring motorcycles such as the Ulysses XB12XT. Erik Buell Racing is producing racing-only trackbikes such as the 1125RR and 1190RR as well as the 1190RS streetbike.

Buell Motorcycle Company was discontinued by Harley-Davidson, Inc. in 2009, but in its short history the Buell brand managed to make an indelible mark on the industry. Company founder Erik Buell left an R&D job at Harley-Davidson in 1982 to build his own race bike. H-D bought a minority interest in the company in 1993. His efforts include short-lived RW750, RR1000 (Battle Twin), the S2 Thunderbolt and XB9R Firebolt. Buell, however, built more than racing motorcycles, introducing the Ulysses adventure sportbike in 2005. More recently, Erik Buell has started a new company – Erik Buell Racing. The first Erik Buell Racing motorcycle was introduced in 2011 – the 1190RS.

2009 Buell 1125CR Review

Buell’s latest line-up includes a sleeker naked version of a model introduced last year, lean and mean, the 1125CR is a force to reckon with. More than just “Harley’s sportbike”, this Café Racer is ready to compete against the Japanese.

Big, Naked and Beautiful: Open-Class Standards 2006

Motorcycles are bad. Not in a negative way, but in a nasty, I'm a bad MOfo kind of way. And the nastiest are the big-motored, unfaired, out-in-the-wind, high-performance naked standard motorcycles we label "Hooligan" machines.
