A salesman from an HD dealership told me the Buell owners killed the line themselves, because they would not support their local HD/Buell dealerships. I am still amazed. Buell made such effective machines. It is a good feeling to ride a bike that was purposefully designed and built.
I'M SURE THIS WILL NOT BE THE END OF ERIK AND HIS GREAT CREATIONS! He could continue solo or any serious manufacturer would be interested in his talents.

the economy killed Buell, when a company sees falling sales numbers of their main brand, the need to re-coup cost elsewehere. also, when they want to enter a lucritive market like India, they need to spend a boatload of money as well. I own a 200 Thunderbolt, a great ride have 30K miles and wiht some care, it runs fantastic, just goes through tires, if you can imagein that. Also bought a ULY when HD announced the closing of Buell. A sweet ride as well...if you have not ridden a Buell you just do not know what you are missing or discussing. I also own a RK, a couple Sporty's, a small Suzuki and a 40 year old Honda so if you ride, ride a Buell before you judge one.
