that it thanks for putting it up .

that thing handles to think Harleys are slamed for bad handling and they were builders of one of the top handling bikes of all time.
then they closed it down !!!!
never understand that one

You've got to wonder if they could have put a WSB team together what would that have done for sales.

Its hardly a match like for like thou is it? A GXSR produces 200 Bhp routhly (?), is a purely track bike made to fit the road, the motors past it's best, even in road trim in 20K miles.- one of my freinds has a three year old one that he can't comfortably ride for an hour before getting of (& he's only 6"00in).
Good it may be at going fast around sweeping track. I'd take the Buell every time.

What a great bit of racing, nice looking bike too, a distinct lack of foot boards and apehangers ! Eric is still in the game, preparing for next season. I would love to see one entered into BSB. Erik Buell Racing (http://www.erikbuellracing.com/)

It would not enen make the qulifying on the "superbikes class". If it could it'd be far to slow. Smart bike thou.

--Saying that is it a "sportster" type engine in it or a watercooled jap style thing?

The new 1190RS is an entirely new incarnation. Nothing Harley about it at all and it definitely isnt slow. A v-twin with 175hp, 97ft/lb torque and 176kg.

It's a cracking bike and its good to see them back.

don't watch roundy roundy racing much these days but after watching that might just start watching again if that was shown over here (don't do sky sports type stuff) be good to see how the Buell would do on the smaller tighter circuits here.

The old Battle of The Twins was the best racing ever for me. (sigh) Why did I sell my ol' Duke...(sob).
