Eric Buell Racing Goes Bankrupt

Sad news for Eric Buell Racing as the company closed its doors and all activities have been stopped.This is the second major failure for mastermind Eric Buell after Harley Davidson closed Buell Motorcycle Company back in 2009.

A press release from Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel stated that Eric Buell came to this decision due to lack of further loans leaving the company without any finances. Also Eric Buell also showed his disappointment for this decision: “I am personally grateful for the support of our outstanding workers, customers and vendors. While this is a sad ending, I personally hope for a new and better beginning,”


Founded in 2009, EBR released three motorcycles: the EBR 1190 RS, the EBR 1190 RX and the street-fighter 1190SX. Also an adventure bike was in plan to be released under the name 1190AX.

We hope that Eric Buell will find a way to continue his activity in building American Sport Motorcycles.
