Buell motorcycle finally launched one of its brand new bike 1190SX.

The current Buell Motorcycles company is led by CEO Bill Melvin, 

whose relationship with Buell motorcycle started back in the Harley-Davidson days. When former Harley-Davidson CEO Keith Wandell made the decision to shut down Buell motorcycle, he called in Melvin’s Liquid Asset Partners firm to handle Buell’s asset liquidation.  

Fast-forward a few years, after Erik Buell picked up his tools, went home, and started Erik Buell motorcycle Racing. Things were cautiously optimistic on the small-scale racing front, but after Hero MotoCorp got involved and started missing crucial payments to EBR, the company unfortunately became insolvent. Once again, Liquid Asset Partners and Bill Melvin stepped in, buying up EBR’s assets



Is a Buell Motorcycle still a Buell Motorcycle without Erik Buell? In 2021, that’s not just a rhetorical question. Buell Motorcycles is officially back, but this time without Erik Buell at the helm.  The current iteration has grand plans to launch 10 new motorcycle models by 2024. Not only that, but it already lists four 2021 models on its website. If the man that gave his name to the company isn’t behind it, then who is

Buell motorcycle The Super Touring bike is super exciting. It's got some really distinct features I think it's going to be exciting for people to see. It's mean, it's tough, it's a mega-fast bike. This is a bike that can go head-to-head with a Ducati Multistrada,” CEO Bill Melvin told Lance Oliver of Revzilla’s Common Tread

Melvin also went on to say that it produces 185 horsepower, and added that while Buell is working on some rider aids, this is a bike meant for a more advanced rider. You can take that however you like, as I’m sure readers generally do. Timing the relaunch of Buell and its upcoming Super Adventure model just before Harley-Davidson's Pan America reveal was also a calculated choice. Of course, exactly how that calculus works out remains to be seen. 



As a final puzzle piece, the company acquired the rights to the Buell motorcycle brand in 2020.  As of February, 2021, we have the formal announcement that Buell Motorcycles will shortly be rolling out a wide range of bikes aimed at a broad spectrum of riders. To be totally clear, Erik Buell motorcycle has zero to do with the company that now bears his name. 

So far, the company lists four models for 2021, all based on the Rotax-derived 1190cc V-twin engine. Additionally, the RX and SX feature some Buell motorcycle innovations seen in previous iterations of the brand, including the aluminum fuel-in-frame design and the perimeter brake rotor up front. 

The sporty 2021 Hammerhead 1190RX will be sold in either what Buell motorcycle calls “Heritage Colors,” which are orange and gray, or Carbon Fiber. Meanwhile, the more street-oriented 1190 SX will come in your choice of Carbon Fiber or Black Mamba, with more upright rider ergonomics than those found on the 1190RX.  

Buell motorcycle The 1190 Super Touring is listed as “Coming Soon!” on Buell’s website, with a couple of renders posted, but no other available information.
