This video strikes me as fake for some reason. There are zero close ups of the bike. I also googled the bike and to my surprise, nothing but this video surfaced. Soooo if Buell was doing such a good job of keeping this project secret than why would we have this video?

With that said, boy do I hope it's real. Might be able to justify buying a Buell when given the chance now...

It's true. My understanding is that this bike will be unveiled at 2pm CST today! at the Buell dealer show. They should be on the website by tonite or tomorrow. I MUST have one. F the old firebolt.

About. Freaking. Time.

Now we get to see what Erik Buell reall has up his sleaves.
Kinda surprised Harley would let this go through as it doesn't use their engine.
Glad they did though, looks sweeeeeet!

I want one! Maybe the second or third model year though. You know it's going to have bugs that need worked out. Besides- I couldn't afford it right now anyway.

I'll be checking the Buell site when I get back from my ride...

Looks like I bought my bike at the PERFECT time...

Heh... Going to the liquid cooled engine is the beginning of ruining these bikes for me... I like the retard simple nature of the Buells...

THe problem is the Sportster engine. Erik wants to win races and sell bikes. That engine isn't gonna do that. This new one might.
